Sporting CP boss Jorge Jesus has heaped praise on his Real Madrid counterpart Zinedine Zidane ahead of their Champions League clash.
Sporting travel to the Bernabeu to kick off their Champions League campaign but Jesus believes that their opponents have improved greatly since Zidane was appointed back in January.
"With Zidane, this Real Madrid team is stronger," explained the 62-year-old.
"They are no longer a team of individuals, they are a team.
"They are a stronger opponent now than at any point over the past few years, but we will play to win."
