Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has said that he would have preferred to avoid Juventus in Friday’s Champions League draw because of his attachment to the Italian giant where he spent five happy years.
Real Madrid will lock horns with the Italians in April in what will look like a replay of last season’s Champions League final.
Zidane told reporters, “I spent five years over there and it was an important club in my career as a player, so obviously it always has an effect on me when we play Juve.
“I would have preferred to avoid Juventus for many reasons.
“But we drew Juve and now I have to concentrate on that and forget about everything that happened to me there as a player even if it’ll always be there in the back of my mind.
“They look as solid as they were last year.”
