Another New Zidane.

New Zidane sighting, sound the alarms...

This is fleet footed six year old Madin Mohammed. Madin has been signed up by the French national academy and is attracticing attention from clubs all over Europe including Real madrid and Chelsea.

Young Madin is the latest to be compared to the retired French master. There have been many 'new Zidanes' in the past. And I mean MANY!

Be warned, the below video is highly entertaining.


Madin Mohammed. New Zidane number 456?

I made my 6-year-old son watch this. Then I beat him severely, constantly repeating "Why can't you be more like Madin Mohammed?"

Should do wonders for his self-esteem later in life.

My nipper is 2 and has mastered the step over and rolling the ball past me with the sole of his foot. Also has a mean shot.

I think this kid scored on me last week.

Sooo, he know's how to spin with the ball and kinda do a Cruyff turn. Yup, all the makings of Zidane.

Bigus Dickus said...

If you watch the video, I think the 'zidane' factor is deciding what to do and when, like when he lets the ball go through his legs and turns.

Just looking at the footage from when he plays other kids--he will be the main reason France loses a generation of players as the kids collectively say "screw this, I'll go be a pastry chef." That's some humiliation there.

He is a natural, no dispute there. Sign with a team, and then spend all his time at Clairefontaine to learn tactics.

After watching the reactions of some of those defenders, wait until he gets to face whoever the 6-yo "Next Martin Taylor" is...

So I assume he'll be signing for Arsenal next year?

The old Zidane played for France, right? Les Blues fans might wanna check the flag at the end of the video before they start celebrating their victory in the 2022 World Cup (the stadiums in SA oughta be done by then).
