Zinedine Zidane: A Stroller and A Smile

Zinedine Zidane met with Azylis, a child suffering from leucodystrophie disease in Paris yesterday. Don’t worry – his mantote won’t be used to smuggle any candy from that pretty pink baby backpack. In fact, Zizou would never be faced with having to steal sweeties from a baby, because with that smile, kids would willingly part with their sugary stash. Image via Reuters.

    I too, would give up my sugary stash to come face-to-face with that smile, and that man! Thank you for this, it has made my day much sweeter!

    This just goes to show people that Zinadine can be extremely nice when the person deserves it. This child certaintly deserves a nice (drool worthy) smile not like that Materazzi, he got the headbutt ’cause he deserved it!

      @elnino: He will be part of the broadcast team of the Mexico City based Televisa network along with Figo and several other former players and actor Diego Luna. There are many snarky comments in the French press making it seem as if he was going to be shilling for a mom and pop Mexican TV station. Televisa is the largest Spanish speaking media conglomerate in the world. Zidane doesn't need to prove to anyone that he is a fine human being. He is a great humanitarian. He has helped raised millions of dollars for the ELA organization and their scientists have managed to save the lives of 2 boys – it was all over the news a few months ago but of course that doesn't get any press. Who cares about the incident in Berlin anymore except for this scary Dana person who is clearly very racist and filled with hate herself.

    Good lord Kickette mods, are you gonna let this racist hate filled comment stand?? what the hell does that mean? "live up to the stereotypes of his race"?. Who even talks like that? except for racists and haters like this dana person. Nice way to spoil a perfectly sweet column.
