Real Madrid’s Zidane must be high on confidence after he suggested that his team would eliminate Liverpool from the Champions League if they meet at the next round.
“If we play Liverpool, we will eliminate them,” said Zidane with a wry smile. “We can’t do anything about the draw.”
While Zidane’s comments were obviously in jest, the Frenchman could be forgiven for feeling confident in this competition. After all, he has won the Champions League in each every season has managed in it: becoming one only three managers to have won the Champions League title three times.
