Zidane involved in car crash on his way to training
1. Zidane involved in a car crash with a fan
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane crashed into another car on his way to training – but surprisingly ended up posing for a selfie with the other driver. The French legend and current Madrid boss was described as “very well-mannered, cordial and attentive the whole time” by the owner of the other car after incident. He rear-ended the other vehicle on Saturday in the North eastern region of Spanish capital city. Zidane was driving his own Audi RS6 when he rammed Spanish businessman Ignacio Fernandez’s car, a rather less expensive Audi Q4, as they headed towards a roundabout. Fernandez, 44, who owns a furniture shop nearby, told Golder’s: “Around 9.30am near Valdebebas I was entering a roundabout and I braked a little abruptly, and I was hit by the car behind me. “I parked up and saw another car speed past me, I thought he was driving off, but then I saw he was parking too. I got out of my car and realised it was Zidane. “I thought ‘what a relief’ because I knew he had enough to pay for the insurance. I apologised for braking suddenly, but I could not risk it and he told me he was a little distracted and that he was sorry too.” He explained how the pair exchanged details and took photos of the incident but he did not want to take up too long of the “high profile” superstar’s time in order “to avoid him being recognised”.
