Juventus midfielder Matuidi huge fan of Zidane: Better than Platini, Trezeguet

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi admits he's a huge fan of Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

Matuidi, speaking with L'Equipe, was asked who he rated the best among French icons Zidane, David Trezeguet and Michel Platini.

"Zidane, of course! A more recent era than Platini, and then it's Zidane sure! Trezeguet, too, is one of the names that remain," he said.

"But the people of the club have respect for all French players who have been here. The other day, a physiotherapist even likened me with Olivier Kapo."

Matuidi joined Juve last summer from PSG.
