the essentials The RAF has formalized the commitment of Enzo Zidane, Zinédine’s eldest son, for one season.
A number 5, Zidane streamed … The dream machine will run at full speed with the supporters of the RAF until Ligue 2 resumes. And on the weekend of July 24th, they’ll finally be able to see it with their own eyes. Enzo Zidane, 26, has signed up to Rodez: he will defend the colors of blood and gold for one season, with the same number on his back that his father wore at Real Madrid.

On this Wednesday, June 9th, the RAF offered itself a name. Illustrated. But not only. Pierre-Olivier Murat was obviously aware “that the phone would explode if this signature were announced. “But in the end the club president assured him” quite honestly: That’s why I didn’t recruit him. “
“Enzo has very important qualities for the L2”
Why then ? First there is the sporting aspect and the marriage of convenience between a club preparing for its third Ligue 2 season and a player thirsting for playing time after growing up in the shadow of the White House in Madrid, where he did his first in 2013 Having signed a professional contract, Enzo Zidane continued his journey far enough from the lights: at Deportivo Alaves, in the second Spanish division, then in Lausanne, at Rayo Majadahonda (Spanish second division, with CD Aves in Portugal and in Almeria, still in the second Spanish League.
Enzo Zidane will arrive in Rodez with the idea of breaking through his glass ceiling and sticking two labels on it. He knows that of “son of”. The other is that of a technical midfielder who ‘was trained at the greatest club in the world’, as Pierre-Olivier Murat reminds us: “When you start playing at Real Madrid as a kid, there is no need to make a big argument about it The quality of the player’s education What we were looking for was a balance between hardworking, effective players and technically superior players; Enzo is technically a player who has very important qualities for Ligue 2.
Zidane and Aveyron, the story goes on
At the RAF you play with your feet, but also with your heart. That’s a good thing. “Enzo still has a bit of Aveyron blood,” says Murat, so we know he’ll do whatever he can to defend the shirt, like all the players who join us. “
With a mother from Onet-le-Château and regular trips to the Aligot-Land, the son of Doppel-Z shouldn’t get disoriented when walking on Paul-Lignon’s lawn. What we want are players who are fit and who like the crest. He, his grandparents are here, his mother is from here. He will have the stability to express himself fully after borrowing from right to left. “

Pierre-Olivier Murat answers whether the name of the father, who has been a minority shareholder in the RAF since 2012, is in any way hanging over the negotiations: “We worked with Enzo like with all the other players. We went through his agent, had discussions and convinced him to come to Rodez with our sports project. What is starting to look great.
