Zidane: I’m happy because my life has long been associated with this club

Зидан: Я счастлив, потому что моя жизнь давно связана с этим клубом

The coach of real Madrid Zinedine Zidane commented on his team’s victory in the Champions League final.

Recall, the real could not hold on for victory in regulation time of the match (1:1), but triumphed over Atletico in the penalty shoot-out (5:3).

“Physically it was quite tough, but that’s okay. This is a very serious psychological pressure, however, it is necessary to cope. In the end, we have to fight, and that is what we did. When you win something like the Champions League, it makes a huge difference – for the players and for the coaching staff.

I dreamed about it. When the President gave me the chance with this team, with players of this caliber, with such talented players, I had the opportunity to achieve something serious, and today we did it.

I’m happy because my life has long been associated with this great club, first as player, then as assistant coach and now as head coach. I’m really proud of myself in this gorgeous family.

Both teams went all the way to the end – to penalties. It was in our favor, but it could easily turn the other way. Congratulations to Atletico and Simeone. He is a great coach, and I’m certainly very happy with this victory. Carlo Ancelotti spoke to me: “the Victory in the Champions League as a coach has nothing to do with the victory as a player.

Cristiano was injured. He was there together with all and brought us victory. He’s right, he fought, ran a lot, did a lot of useful things. He always helps his partners. We had some discussion with him a penalty, but that’s it,” said Zidane.
