Tomorrow Inter will face Real Madrid in a crucial game to qualify for the knockout phase. SkySports Italia interviewed the French coach ahead of the clash.
Tomorrow’s game, with the one played at San Siro, will be the pinnacle of this group stage. “Tomorrow will be like a final to us, and we will play with that intensity. We are focusing exclusively on tomorrow’s game and nothing after that. I expect the team to measure up to the occasion. Just like for the rest of the tournament.” Zidane commented.
The two coaches were teammates at Juventus, with Conte captaining the Bianconeri side. “When we played together he was a crucial part of the team – Zidane had to say – and he was a great leader. He kept that quality on the bench of the teams he coached. I followed his training sessions at Juve in order to become a coach. We have a good relationship but I have not seen him in four or five years.”
The Galacticos and the Nerazzurri have severely underperformed being respectively last (1 pt) and third (3pts). Tomorrow’s game will likely make or break either of the two teams that have run out of mistakes they can afford.
