MADRID (AFP) — Reality TV has helped discover fresh musical talent and now two veteran football stars in Spain plan to use the format in a global search for a new star of the game.

France legend Zinedine Zidane and Enzo Francescoli of Uruguay on Monday unveiled a new reality show called ""Football Cracks"" which will follow the progress of 17 promising young players from around the world who are selected to attend a six-week training camp near Madrid.
The participants will work with top trainers, sports nutritionists and a psychologist, and the winner will receive the opportunity to strut their stuff during the 2010-11 pre-season at a Spanish first division club.
