Real Madrid sporting director Zinedine Zidane has taken the time to praise Montpellier duo Olivier Giroud and Younes Belhanda.
The former France international visited MHSC's 2-2 home draw against Evian and singled out the attacking midfielder and the striker as the Ligue 1 side's biggest stars.
"We will have to wait and see whether they can win the league title. You can't predict anything in football," Zidane said to Canal +. "The entire team is good, but Belhanda and Giroud are doing extraordinary things."
The 22-year-old Belhanda has been one of the revelations of the season, and has already netted 12 goals in 28 Ligue 1 games, while setting up four more.
The attacking midfielder has been linked with clubs such as Inter and Madrid in the past few months.
Meanwhile, Giroud has scored 21 goals in 33 league games, while also having eight assists to his name.
