Attack vs Attack

Manager Saying: 

Zinedine Zidane: We’re so delighted to be here for another CL final. We’re not going to live this moment again. It’ll stay in the past. Tomorrow will never be repeated so we have to make the most of it. We might be a bit under pressure, but that’s life. There are two teams in football, you have to understand how an opponent can hurt you and control it. And you have to hurt them when you have the ball. This is the worst moment for a coach, deciding the team because some won’t put a jersey on and some will be on the bench and not play at all. But that’s my responsibility. That’s my job.
Jurgen Klopp: We don’t have the same quality as bench as Real Madrid because Vazquez and Asensio are young but have unbelievable quality as well as whoever sits beside them. It’s not about comparing all their good parts. We’ll have the best bench available to us in weeks tomorrow night. We are as fresh as we can be. Fitness will not be an issue tomorrow. To win a final, each team in the past needed a bit of luck. That’s what we need tomorrow as well. We need to be ready for all the challenges in the game. But we will never compare anything they have with what we don’t have. We’re fine with our tools. We want to use them. Maybe a few clubs have better things that we have - but they are not in the final. We want to do it our way and then we’ll see where it leads to.
Ronaldo to win it record 5 times??
