Remaining in the shadow of his brother Zinedine, Majid Zidane leads an ordinary life in Marseille.
Zinedine Zidane, “El Magnifico” of French football, has three brothers: Madjid, Nordine, and Farid.
Who are the brothers of Zinedine Zidane?
Zinedine Zidane doesn’t need to be introduced to football fans.\
Not only has he made a name for himself on the field with his talent, but he has also been the coach of Real Madrid for many years.
Apparently, since the beginning of his career, the former captain of the Blues has always been able to rely on his fans, especially on his family.
Moreover, during Zizou’s farewell as captain of the French national team at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on May 7, 2006, his three brothers, Madjid, Nordine, and Farid, wanted to be by his side.
Unfortunately, in July 2019, Farid tragically lost his life to cancer at the age of 54. When Zinedine learned that his brother was in his final moments, the football genius left Real Madrid’s training camp in Canada to be with him.
Nordine, a fan of Zizou, was photographed with their father Smaïl Zidane watching the World Cup from their home in Marseille in 1998.
It is worth noting that at that time, it was the French team that emerged victorious.
Nordine Zidane also managed Zizou’s career at one point.
How does Madjid live?
As for Majid Zidane, he has also chosen to stay away from the media attention surrounding his brother.
Madjid is still a partner in the company Zidane Diffusion.
He lives in Marseille, where he works as a maintenance agent at a swimming pool in the Castellane neighborhood. Far from the media pressure, he goes by the name Djamel.
And if he has the opportunity, he takes the chance to return to Algeria. It seems that Madjid Zidane prefers to lead an ordinary life, even though he is the brother of a football legend.
