Luca Zidane, second son of Zinédine, struggles to launch his career. At 22, the Real Madrid-trained goalkeeper waxes the bench for Spain’s second division club Rayo Vallecano, but seems determined to move forward. And why not at OM?
No career plan for Luca Zidane
Lining the last Macedonian rampart Stole Dimitrievski at Rayo Vallecano, Luca Zidane has played only eight games since his arrival at this club from one of the districts of Madrid last summer. And if his career seems to be at a standstill, the goalkeeper loaned to Racing Santander last season spoke of his future with Foot Mercato. “My decisions on the future do not depend on the place. Me, the country, I don’t care. What I like is playing football, whether in France, Italy, Spain or Portugal, that is. The important thing is the club’s project, what it needs and what I want to go there, “says Luca Zidane.
Zidane for the post-Mandanda / Pelé at OM?
The goalkeeper position will soon be a problem for OM. The holder Steve Mandanda (36 years old) and his understudy Yohann Pelé (38 years old), are approaching the end of their career. And if the goalkeepers of the training center patiently wait their turn, Luca Zidane would see himself wearing the colors of Marseille, his hometown. “Coming back to the country where you were born would be good, especially if it’s Olympique de Marseille, club in the city where I was born and where my family comes from. It’s a historic club, l “one of the best in France, with a very demanding audience. I would like to be able to play there one day”, affirms the goalkeeper to the two appearances in the jersey of Real. A wish soon granted?
