Real beat Juventus 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League final in Cardiff to become the first team in modern CL era to win the trophy twice in a row, and even though Zinedine Zidane knows the club made history, he seemed willing to downplay his own… managerial skills.
I’m not the best coach in the world
the Frenchman told Antenna 3 smiling, keeping a low profile, before adding
clearly, I’ll continue. Our thoughts are already turning to next year but now we’re going to enjoy this
clearing out that he has no intention to take a break from coaching or to look elsewhere for a new challenge.
No one had won the Champions League twice in a row, and we did it, so you can say today is a truly historic day for all Madrid fans, for myself, for the whole Madrid family
the French coach also said.
Real Madrid took the lead thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo goal, but the teams went to the dressing room at halftime with the score tied at 1-1, after a spectacular Mario Mandzukic goal.
In the second part Madrid looked far superior, Casemiro and Ronaldo scored twice in a matter of three minutes to give them a clear 3-1 advantage, and Marco Asensio added the cherry on top with his added time goal, against a Juventus side who were playing with ten men since the 84th minute, when Juan Cuadrado got sent off after a spat with Sergio Ramos.
