Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has praised Champions League finals team Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG shall be facing Bayern Munich in the Champions League finals clash on Sunday night – and Zidane has pitched in with his views on the Ligue 1 side – will they win or lose?
“For PSG it is already an exceptional course and for Lyon, which is the first time they are in the semi-finals, it is formidable,” said Zidane.
“It is great for French clubs.
“There is a little bad talk about the Ligue 1.
“I say it is a great league, a difficult championship and seeing two French clubs go so far in the Champions League is good.”
Zidane has also admitted that PSG’s growth has been the result of hard work and careful squad building over the past few years – which has led them to finals today.
“[The fact] that they are in the final is easy to explain, because of the team they have,” he noted.
“It is a homogeneous team, [as] they have been building something for several years.
“Logically, by dint of believing and working, they reach this level today.
“I think it is quite well deserved, there is no luck in football.”
