Zinedine Zidane: “A series of penalty kicks were in our favor, but everything could turn the opposite way”

The head coach of Real Zinedine Zidane about a victory over Atletico (1:1, 5:3 ) in a Champions League final.

“It was not easy physically, but it is normal. It is very serious psychological pressure, however it is necessary to cope with it. All in all,  you have to fight, and we did it. When you win something similar, it has a huge value – for players and coach’s board.
I dreamed of it. When the president gave me such chance, with this team, with such great players, I had an opportunity to achieve something serious, and today we have made it.
I am happy because my life is connected with this great club long ago – at first as the player, then as the coach assistant and now as the head coach. I am really proud that I am the part of that incredible family.
