Zinedine Zidane Is Responsible For Taking The Worst Corner Kick In Football History

Zinedine Zidane Is Responsible For Taking The Worst Corner Kick In Football History

Zinedine Zidane is widely regarded as one of the greatest to ever lace up the boots.

Known for his vision, ball control and technique, the incredibly talented French playmaker gave us some truly iconic moments during a trophy-laden, 17 year career in football.

That goal in the Champions League final against Bayer Leverkusen, when he wrapped his left-foot around a cross and leathered it into the top corner, springs to mind.

Not to mention that orgasmic first touch against Denmark at Euro 2000, where he made Thomas Helveg look plain silly.

It's fair to play Zidane produced time and time again for the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus but even the very best can get it wrong sometimes.

Take this awfully-taken corner in the 90's, for example. The French midfielder was playing in Italy at the time when he tried to catch the opposition out with a clever short corner routine.

But instead of finding his man with a simple pass, Zidane instead knocked the ball out of play for a goal kick.

How have we never seen this before?

It's hard to believe Zidane was capable of such a poor piece of play. You could even suggest that this corner is the worst of all time, although Iago Aspas might have something to say about that.

Aspas is known by many for taking the worst corner in Premier League history.

His dreadul effort to find a teammate on the edge of the box infamously led to Willian putting the final nail in the coffin at Anfield during the 2013/14 season - and ultimately ended their title dreams.

Can you think of any other contenders for the worst corner kick of all time?

Let us know in the comments below. Surely Zidane has to be up there!
