I’m extremely thankful to the players, first and foremost, because they’re the ones fighting out on the pitch,” Zidane was quoted as saying at the post-match presser by the club’s official website. “I have my role and I’m with them, but it’s a team effort. This is a huge achievement, it’s incredibly emotional.

Many thanks to everyone for the support,” he added. IANS Also Watch: Truck Catches Fire in Nagaon; Locals Suspect Foul Playlast_img read more
