10. Zinedine Zidane
Almost every time when there is an important event organized by FIFA or UEFA, you see his presence in that very place- almost as if he’s the organizer. Zidane has always been one of the most successful French player in football and his move to Real Madrid was indeed the most high profile transfer to have made during those days. Although many might say he ended his career in a darker note- because of his famous head-butt incident, but it is absolutely clear that in the world football community- his say upon the matter is regarded very important. He comes in the 10th spot in our countdown.
