The artist, who is not even a great fan of football (he hadn't even stepped foot in a football stadium until in 2006 he was told to cover the France-Spain match in Germany), admits that he was captivated by Zizou's magnetism from the word go.

"He was very professional when posing. He's very timid but also a bit of a joker. He can play it nice and formal when the occasion calls for it, but he has also not lost any of the jargon from his Marseille neighbourhood. This is something that brings us closer together. Zidane is from the streets, but he moves like an aristocrat and has a certain diplomacy and discreetness that goes down well here in Spain. I ended up falling in love with him. He has that Clint Eastwood stare that freezes men in their place and melts women where they sit. He comes out well in all the photos", the photographer enthused to MARCA before we took a look at the image that people stop to admire the most: Di Stéfano sat with his walking stick and Zidane standing in front of him with his hand on the late, great player's shoulder.

Zizou looked FEROCIOUS on the sidelines. For what it's worth, if the coaching gig doesn't pan out this man oughta be (NEEDS to be) in the cinema. However, 2 games into his new job and he is doing very well.
