Zinedine Yazid Zidane Thierry Henry Barthez Eric Felipe Silva Santos. This is the name of a Brazilian teenager whose name demonstrates his father’s passion for soccer (in case you were wondering). Recently we also told you the story of guide mea girl who bears that name as a reduction of “Águilas del América”, due to the love that her father feels for the cream-blue team.
However, last weekend there was the debut of a young man of just 17 years old in the Mexican Premier League. His name: Zinedine Sidane Hernandez, who, like the French star, is also nicknamed “The Magician”. People on social networks made fun of it, but… Who knows? What if we are looking at a young promise who bears in her name the star of who was one of the most important players in the history of Real Madrid?
Who is Zinedine Sidane Hernández?
Zinedine Sidane Hernandez is a player who debuted this weekend in Mexican soccer, specifically in the Premier league, with the Zapopan Falcons. The youngster is 17 years old and came on at minute 66 of running time to replace his teammate Juan Antonio Sandoval.
Zapopan Falcons faced his counterpart from Irapuato, in a match that ended scoreless at the Sergio León Chávez stadium. The young man was born in Guadalajara in 2006 and, although it has not been confirmed, we assume that his father is a fan of the French star who left a great legacy at Real Madrid, winning three consecutive Champions Leagues, something very difficult to achieve.

How did the internet react?
We know that the Internet does not forgive, however, the media were more objective with the boy indicating that who knows if we could be facing our own Zizou. Others went further, such as a user who wondered how it was possible that her husband denied her the pleasure of calling her son Paolo Maldini.
Others indicated that it is very possible that the young man has received bullying at some point in his life and several wished him luck after having made his debut in Mexican soccer, hoping that he will soon do so in the first division.
