Juventus 1997 - No.21 Zidane.
Renowned for his elegance, vision and technique, Zinedine Zidane has been described as one of the greatest players in the history of the game.
Three times Fifa World player of the year, Zidane was also named the best European footballer of the past 50 years by UEFA.
In 2014, in a poll carried out by French TV channel TF1, Zidane was voted as the best player in the history of the French league ahead of other French football legends such as Michel Platini and Raymond Kopa.
After a series of consistently outstanding performances for both Bordeaux and France, Zidane had offers to join Europe's top clubs in the spring of 1996, deciding on a move to UEFA Champions League winners Juventus during the close season, following in Platini's footsteps.
'Zizou's' abilities soon shone through and he became one of the most revered players on the planet during his spell with the Bianconeri, collecting Serie A titles in 1997 and 1998, an Italian Super Cup in 1997, the UEFA Super Cup in 1996 and the Intercontinental Cup the same year.
In 2001, Zidane broke Turin's heart and joined Real Madrid for a world record fee of €75 million.
Displaying skills with an array of moves such as his signature La Roulette pirouette, step overs and close ball control Brazilian playmaker Ronaldinho stated; "Zidane is one of the best footballers of all time, one of my idols. He had such elegance and grace, a wonderful touch and superb vision."
Michel Platini once said "Technically, I think he is the king of what's fundamental in the game — control and passing. I don't think anyone can match him when it comes to controlling or receiving the ball."
