Zidane ready to help Algeria
The Daily Mirror (UK), December 23rd, 2009 12:30PM

MOST COMMENTED

French star Zinedine Zidane, the son of Algerian immigrants, is ready to help U.S. World Cup opponent Algeria next summer. In an interview with France Football readers, Zidane, who led France to the 1998 World Cup title and was sent off in the 2006 World Cup final, says he wants to support Algerian coach Rabah Saadane

"Maybe it has already been done," he said. "There are things that I want to do about which I don't want to speak publicly. That stays between me and those involved, the players, some of whom I already know. That doesn't mean either that I will do something with them. It is my own business."

Zidane said he was happy the Desert Foxes qualified for the first time since playing at the 1986 World Cup. "The Algerians really deserved their qualification," he said. "I have not seen Algeria play in this style for a long time. Now, it is all a bonus. They can go to South Africa without pressure."
