Zidane have won Champions League with Real Madrid as player and as a manager. However, the manager said something interesting about what he achieved in past. He said
“I feel great and I’m not feeling any vertigo. This club relishes moments like this and we’re focused on tomorrow’s game. Whatever you have achieved in the past you need to keep proving yourself. We may have beaten them in two finals but it will still be a different game.”
