It also shows the former Real Madrid man taking a variety of first touches most could only dream of.

Check out the video below.

The World Cup winner's technique when bringing a ball under his control was unrivaled in his prime and he'd fit in to every era of football.

Real Madrid fans reacted to the video and praise their legendary player-turned manager.


However, one of his most iconic moments in a 'Los Blancos' shirt involved a spectacular volley with no control at all.

Madrid were taking on Bayer Leverkusen at Hampden Park and Zidane scored the game's winning goal in spectacular fashion.

An attack down the left saw left-back Roberto Carlos manage to send in a lofted ball for Zidane on the edge of the area.

The Los Blancos talisman swiveled his body shape and left fly with a stunning left-footed volley that rippled into the net.

Although he didn't control the ball in a traditional sense, his body manipulation was world class.

Many forget Zidane's talent on the pitch due to the infamous 2006 World Cup Final headbutt.

The headbutt has lived on in the memory of many and it's still one of football's most shocking moments.

Zidane decided that after the World Cup he would retire from football despite being only 34.

He played a massive part in France getting to the final and they took on Italy in 'Zizou's' final ever match.

With the score 1-1 and just 10 minutes away from a penalty shootout, Zidane engaged in debate with Materazzi that ended in the headbutt.

Zidane walking past the World Cup trophy as he headed down the tunnel remains one of football's most iconic images.

But it's also worth remembering the pure class he had on the field.
