The content of Zidane’s pre-game talk to his players during Monday’s training session has been revealed by Spanish TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones.
“You know how this works, this is football. We’ve done it time and time again, we gotta stay strong and be together, all of us, that’s why we have to be focused,” said Zidane while the players listened carefully.
“In the end, this is the most beautiful thing about football, to win titles, to win and prove that we are the best,” he added.
The players responded to Zidane’s trust by dismantling Juventus 0-3 and almost clinch their presence in the Champions League Semifinals after a brilliant display in Italy.
The return leg will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu and Madrid will just have to take care of business to advance to the next round. It won’t be easy for Los Blancos to win a third straight European title, but it’s definitely something they are capable of doing.
