Luca Zidane: What My Dad Told Me Ahead Of Real Madrid Debut
Real Madrid goalkeeper Luca Zidane revealed what his dad, Zinedine, told him ahead of his senior debut against Villarreal on Saturday.
The 20-year-old was handed his first senior start in Los Blancos' final league game of the season, which ended in a 2-2 draw courtesy of a late Los Amarillos equaliser.
The France U20 international has admitted that his first senior appearance was "bittersweet", and that he only found out the day before the match that he would make his debut.
"I'm happy for my debut, but the result is a bit bittersweet," the shot-stopper said, according to Football Espana.
"My dad told me (on Friday) that I would play, and he told me to make the most of this moment. It made me really proud to play with the best in the world.
"The guys also said just to enjoy the moment."
Luca Zidane joined Real's academy when his father was a player for the club in 2004, and has been a regular squad member of the club's senior team this season.
