A New Zidane in Madrid: Thea Steps Up to Continue the Family Legacy

The prestigious legacy of the Zidane family at Real Madrid is set to continue with the likely addition of Thea Zidane to the first team. Following in the footsteps of his father Zinedine, and his brothers Enzo and Luca, Thea is carving out his own path at the club.

Carlo Ancelotti has included Thea in the squad for the upcoming match against Napoli, a decision influenced partly by injuries to key players and partly by Real Madrid’s points difference with the Italian champions. This move signifies Ancelotti’s intention to give young talents a chance to shine.

Thea is noted for his physical strength and his ability to cover a large portion of the field, attributes that he uses to his advantage. He is versatile in midfield positions, feeling most at home in a defensive role. According to Marca, Thea’s ball control skills have been reminiscent of his father’s from a young age.

Enzo was the first of the Zidane siblings to debut for Real Madrid in a match against Eibar in 2016, replacing Isco. However, he hasn’t featured in the first team since and currently plays for Fuenlabrada. Luca, the goalkeeper, has made a couple of appearances for Real Madrid and is now a member of Eibar.

Now, it’s Thea’s turn to make his mark, and fans are eager to see if Ancelotti will grant him playing time against Napoli, adding another chapter to the Zidane family’s storied history with Real Madrid.
