My Footballing Hero: Sebastian Prödl

With France in action this afternoon, delved through the archives to find out which French star Sebastian Prödl grew up idolising.

“My footballing hero when I was younger was Zinedine Zidane,” the defender told the club's matchday programme. “I thought he was such an elegant player.

“He was a creator, he was always confident on the ball and he was always taking care of his teammates on the pitch.

“He always put a lot of intensity into his work and he never put himself in the main role, but he played like he was the leader.”

Zinedine Zidane won the World Cup with France in 1998

“I never had the chance to watch him live,” said the Austrian. “But I always watched him on television when he was playing for Juventus, Real Madrid and the French national team.

“Unfortunately, I never played against him either, but hopefully one day I can play against a team that he manages

“He's had an impressive career as a manager too at Real Madrid, where he's won major trophies and proved himself once again.” said Prödl.

France play Denmark in their final group game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup at 3pm.
