Zidane: Not the best Coach!

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane insists he is not the best Coach in the world, despite a record-breaking, second Champions League success.

Zidane became the first Coach to win successive Champions Leagues and the first Madrid boss in five years to lead Los Blancos to a La Liga title, but he refused to take too much credit for his side’s glorious past 12 months.

“It’s been a great season, congratulations to all the players and this great club,” he told Antena 3 after Saturday’s 4-1 victory over Juventus in the Final.

“With the players we have and by working hard, we can achieve these things. We know this.

“I’m happy. You may not see it, but inside I feel a great satisfaction.

“Best Coach in the world? No, no, not that.

“Will I stay? It’s clear, yes, but now we’re going to enjoy this.”

AS also reports him as saying: “It’s a tremendous joy for the players and the club.

“We’re happy because it’s not easy to achieve things like winning the League and the Champions League.

“We’ve achieved it with work and enthusiasm. It’s been a spectacular year.

“This better than winning La Liga? It’s the same, it’s a special day, but winning La Liga was the happiest day of my career because it was over 38 days and winning it with the last game is tremendous.

“If you told me that I’d win all this as a Coach years ago…”
