Zinedine Zidane plays down his importance in the Cardiff Champions League final
Real Madrid coach talks his past in Turin and the Champions League 2016/17 final
Playing for Juventus
"I think that Juventus was an important springboard for me. I left Bordeaux, France and I arrived at a very homely club. I was also well-received by the manager, Marcelo Lippe, who helped me to progress. This club made me grow as a player and as a person. I owe it a lot. That's why I didn't play for many clubs in my career. It was my choice."
Final in Cardiff last season
"It was a little bit of everything. It wasn't just my talk at half-time that influenced it. There was the desire of the players to win. When we went out in the second half, we were more decisive. Things turned out well."
Comparison between the final in Cardiff and the game this year
"Everything will be different. We can be two-time champions but that doesn't mean anything. Simple, it gives us the right to say we can defend our title but nothing more. It will be necessary to demonstrate it on the field, to be efficient, more so than last year. And it will be a very difficult knockout game."
