Zinedine Zidane turned 50 on Thursday and to celebrate he gave an interview to 'L'Equipe' in which he spoke about the possibility of coaching PSG, his dream of becoming France coach and the incredible season of Real Madrid and his compatriot Benzema.

In fact, the striker was one of the few who took to social media to congratulate him. "Happy birthday, my brother," he wrote in an Instagram story. In fact, 'Zizou' already said in the interview that he sees the striker as the little brother he never had.

Another who congratulated the former Madrid coach was Marcelo, another player who was a cornerstone of the Marseille man's time at the Bernabeu: "Many congratulations, coach". For their part, Real Madrid as a club did not make a statement, as Juventus did.

The Turin club wanted to pay tribute to one of their legends, who played for the 'Vecchia Signora' between 1996 and 2001. Zidane's future remains uncertain, but it looks like he will take charge of 'Les Bleus' after the World Cup in Qatar.
