Zizou was the special guest at an Adidas event (can you imagine how psyched those guys were?!)
“In Japan we’re looking to claim another important trophy in the Club World Cup”, explained the coach.
Zinedine Zidane was the star appearance at an event for Adidas, where he discussed Real Madrid’s current situation: “The six-point advantage means nothing, it doesn’t mean we’re going to win the league. We’re in first place and happy with the results we’re getting, but there’s a long way to go in La Liga and there’s still a lot to do”.
Club World Cup
“We’ve got a game on Saturday first, and then we’re going to spend a week in Japan. We’re going there to try and win it as we always do, for everyone supporting this great club. We’ve won a lot in Japan and the Japanese people are fantastic madridista fans. It’s a country where we’d love to claim another important title and the Club World Cup is a trophy we can win”.
Winning the Champions League again
“We’re going to try and win the Champions League, it’s our job. The players are doing phenomenal work and it’s an important goal for us. There are lots of ways of getting to the final and we’ll see who our opponents will be on Monday”.
After training, Cris visited the Numen Foundation which helps people with cerebral palsy and related neurological conditions.
