Legend of French football, Zinédine Zidane revealed himself to the Girondins de Bordeaux, where he left a great memory. The Aquitaine club paid tribute to him when designing the 3rd jersey.
It is with his « Zidane jersey » that the Girondins of Bordeaux won in Laval (1-2) on Monday evening to take the lead in Ligue 2. David Guion’s men released the jersey third of the club this season, a tunic that pays homage to Zinedine Zidanea player who marked the history of the club.
The artist Grem’s, commissioned by adidas, designed this jersey by trying to recall the wheels of the native of Marseille. Trained at AS Cannes, the playmaker became one of the best French players in the Bordeaux jersey, being voted best hope of D1 in 1994 and best player in the championship in 1996. He also took his team to the final of the UEFA Cup in ’96.

Zidane’s roulette tribute
» My creative process revolves around Zinedine Zidane’s roulette wheel! I had the chance when I was young to attend the matches during which Zinedine Zidane made his legendary wheels!ignites the designer. My idea was to imitate this roulette with a pen, like a dance, I isolated some of these designs to extract the most pleasant shape for my taste to sublimate the jersey « .
After an incredible summer (demotion to Ligue 2 then to National by the DNCG, before staying on before the start of Ligue 2), the Girondins are off to a good start this season, with 6 wins in 10 matches, thanks in particular to the 6 goals of the England centre-forward Josh Maja. Their jersey in homage to « Zizou » will perhaps bring them happiness.
