Zinedine Zidane admits he learned a lot from Carlo Ancelotti but doesn’t expect their history to influence Bayern Munich-Real Madrid.
Zidane was Ancelotti’s assistant for part of the Italian’s Madrid tenure and the current occupier of Los Blancos’ bench acknowledged he learned from his predecessor, but wouldn’t go into detail.
“I learned many things from Ancelotti. I won’t tell you what, but many things,” Zidane confirmed at a Press conference, AS reports.
“I know him and he knows me but it doesn’t mean anything. It’s neither a disadvantage nor an advantage. There is a game and I think they are two very good teams that will face each other and nothing else. We’re not playing against Carlo.
“We’re going to try to play with speed but not only the front three, we have a strong and balanced team. Every game is different and it’s true that it was spectacular [when Madrid beat Bayern 4-0] three years ago, although Bayern are stronger and better.”
