Bologna’s Barrow looking to emulate Real Madrid legend Zidane

The Gambian forward has cited the legendary French man as his idol
Bologna forward Musa Barrow has stated that he wants to get to reach the upper echelons of the game in the same way as current Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane did in his playing career, referring to the French legend as his idol.

Considered one of the greatest players to grace the game, the 47-year-old was fondly remembered for his time at Real Madrid, where his sublime volleyed winner in the 2-1 victory in the 2002 Champions League final against Bayer Leverkusen won Los Blancos a ninth European elite title.

Zidane was also famous for his exploits with the French national team, winning the 1998 World Cup on home soil after scoring a brace in the 3-0 victory over Brazil, and triumphing at Euro 2000.

He then later captained Les Bleus to the final of the 2006 World Cup and scored from the penalty spot to give France an early lead against Italy, before being sent off in extra-time after a 1-1 draw, as Italy won on penalties
