Erroneous press reports regarding UNDP Goodwill Ambassador Zidane

03 Dec 2009

Recent erroneous press reports claimed that retired French football player, Zinedine Zidane will be traveling to Gaza on behalf of UNICEF. The United Nations Development Programme would like to make it clear that Mr. Zidane will not be travelling to Gaza as a UN Goodwill Ambassador, and would also make it clear that Mr. Zidane is a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador not a UNICEF one. Furthermore, the statements attributed to Mr. Zidane in those stories are completely fabricated.
