“Game against Villarreal is not a test for the final because they are a different team.”
“They are two totally different sides. Villarreal always comes out with the ball and try to play but that’s not the case with Liverpool.”
“We have a week to prepare for the UCL Final and it’s a huge game, it means a lot to us,” concluded Zidane. (as reported by Spanish website MARCA)

“Firstly, I would like to congratulate Atletico Madrid on their achievement.”
“About Juanfran? I won’t complain. I like Juanfran so I will not say anything about it. He was joking and nothing else. That’s all,” concluded Zidane (as reported by MARCA).
