Here is a selection of the best jokes as Zinedine Zidane splits his trousers again, this time during Man City’s stultifying 0-0 draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.
The France World Cup legend suffered the wardrobe malfunction for a second consecutive CL game having previously done so against Wolfsburg.
It was a tedious affair as City and Real played out a goalless first leg in Manchester, so much so that it left Zidane’s moment of exposure to quite comfortably steal the show.
Needless to say, the ‘Zidane splits his trousers’ jokes abounded:

You know it's an exciting game when you're getting a close up of the rip in the bollocks of Zinedine Zidane's trousers.

I'm sure even Zidane lost interest and is shopping online for trousers.

As a public service I've turned over to watch the baseball. Cue three goals a sending off and Zidane's trousers disintegrating.

Apparently Zinedine Zidane has again ripped his trousers. Not great if you use him as a model for your brand… pic.twitter.com/5CyjGNlqj0

A recommendation to Zidane for the next match — these might be harder to tear. pic.twitter.com/0TFJbrSKHa

According to Owen Hargreaves, Zidane ripping his trousers proves he has passion for the game

Done with BT commentators. Literally just said the hole Zidane has made in his trousers shows how passionate he is
