Bixente Lizarazu, his nice thought for Zidane, his “faithful friend”

Zinedine Zidane is in the spotlight this Thursday. For the occasion, his friend and former teammate Bixente Lizarazu sent him a nice message.

This Thursday, Zinédine Zidane celebrates his 50th birthday, half a century for the legend of football. For the occasion, on his Instagram account, Bixente Lizarazu sent a tender message to his former teammate. “Legend, football magician, partner always focused on the collective, faithful friend for life. You are so beautiful and serene at 50. A very happy birthday my friend,” wrote the 52-year-old former footballer. A message that did not fail to react to Internet users, in particular Enzo (27), the son of the French prodigy.

To accompany his words, the former Girondin Ballon d’Or teammate shared two very historic shots, taken when the France team was crowned world champion in 1998 against Brazil (3-0). On the first, Bixente Lizarazu is alongside “Zizou”, decisive twice during the match, and Christophe Dugarry. On the other, the former partners and Robert Pirès firmly and proudly hold their golden trophy. A strong moment in emotion which surely made the old Blues nostalgic.

Since leaving his coaching role at Real Madrid in 2021, the football star is currently without a club but remains highly coveted. Paris Saint-Germain, the French team… discussions are going well as to a possible return.
