Champions League Bale fit and raring to go for Cardiff final

31 May 2017

"Obviously, if I am picked to start, I will start".

Pushed on what the two players offer after Max Allegri suggested that Isco is more technical, Zidane said "the two of them are very good".

"What I've been going through with this club has been spectacular", Zidane said.

Barcelona had defeated the Bianconeri in the 2015 final and Chiellini feels that the side have learnt their lessons from that defeat and are well-equipped to end the club's continental trophy drought. "[But] I'm not 100 percent [fit]".

However, he may well be watching the Champions League final very closely, if reports from Spain are anything to go by. I will select between the 22 players who will start and who will be on the bench.

British officials scold the U.S. for leaking intelligence on the Manchester attack
Greater Manchester Police say two men were arrested overnight in Manchester and in the Withington area in the south of the city. Officers also raided a property in the city's Moss Side neighborhood early Thursday and carried out a controlled explosion.

But the 27-year-old is "desperate" to play against Juventus in what will be a homecoming to Cardiff. He is ready. He is with us.

'The team is the most important thing.

But with Bale back in training on Tuesday, Zidane now has a massive decision headache. I've been very unlucky with my ankle to require surgery, so it has been very frustrating. "There have been moments when I have had to consider other things with my ankle".

"Obviously, any surgery is hard, but in the middle of a season it's always that bit more hard". You can be as creative as you want!

"In hindsight I should have stayed out a bit longer and let it heal and strengthen". If I'm called upon to start, I will start obviously.

US successfully tests ICBM defence system amid North Korea concerns

Should he feature, Bale will be appearing in his third Champions League final in four years since joining Madrid. I will not say what I have decided. I always dreamed I'd play a Champions League final, but never in my home town. "I think Isco has been fantastic". Fifteen years later, in 1981, Los Blancos lost their last final in the Champions League -European Cup, in the old denomination- against Liverpool in Paris.

"It is the happiest day of my professional life by a distance", Zidane, a World Cup victor with France in 1998, surprisingly said after winning the league title last weekend.

It would be an wonderful feat for the former France great, who also helped Madrid win its first Spanish league title in five years, as well as the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup. I'll always be a Real Madrid fan because the club is my life.

"Madrid are a team that are used to playing in finals, as indeed are we... but they are the favourites, without doubt".

"It is incredible to win the league, but the Champions League is always special to me". He was one of the team's leaders in assists, and his performances were good enough to earn him a place back in Brazil's national team under coach Tite, giving him an extra boost of confidence.
