Zinedine Zidane to visit Gaza

Former international soccer star to visit Strip in March as goodwill ambassador for UNICEF

Retired international soccer star Zinedine Zidane is planning a visit to the Gaza Strip as part of UNICEF’s efforts to promote regional peace in the Middle East, Ynet learned Wednesday.

The former French National Team midfielder is expected to visit the Strip in March 2010, as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund.

“I’m thrilled to be appointed by the UN children’s organization as an envoy to tour Gaza Strip. I will make every effort to give Gaza residents great big smiles on their faces.

“Gazans have suffered serious losses, damage, and injuries due to Israeli acts of violence,” Zidane stated.

Zidane, 37, who is a French-Muslim, played in 506 games in his career, for such prominent soccer clubs like Real Madrid and Juventus.

    The truly amazing thing is that the citizens of Gaza can still smile after all they have been through.
