Zinedine Zidane, technician of the Real Madrid, acknowledged Chelsea superiority and affirmed that he has “deserved to go to the final” of the Champions League.
“Chelsea have deserved the tie, we have tried but in the end they have deserved to pass to the final “, said the Madrid coach in Vamos.
“We have lacked being more forceful at the top, we have not had chances to score a goal and it is complicated because they have had their chances. I am very proud of my players, happy with what we did in the ‘Champions’ and now it’s time to rest and think about the league“he added.
Zidane defended that all the players on his team who participated in the match were in good condition to do so, on the day that Sergio Ramos, Ferland Mendy and Fede Valverde returned, lacking competition rhythm.
“Players were prepared to play ninety minutes or more. We can be very proud of them because they have tried, they have come this far, one step from the final. Chelsea played a great game and we have to congratulate them, “he said.
“Now we are not happy, the players when they lose a game and more a semifinal cannot be happy. It is a hard moment, but tomorrow we will prepare a new game again,” he said.
