"He had skill and technical ability that were just out of the ordinary. When it came to control, and especially leading the team, he managed to see and analyze situations quicker dan anyone else on the field. Thanks to that he made the difference."

"I always admired Zinedine Zidane. He didn't do tricks for the sake of it. He never wanted to show off. He just played a clever game. He is the player who decides games. I watched his technique and tried to do that in my game, and a lot of times it worked."
