Zidane reveals how he told Real Madrid defenders to handle Salah in Champions League final

Zinedine Zidane has opened up on Real Madrid’s approach to the Champions League final and how they planned to deal with Mohamed Salah.

The Liverpool star was forced off during the first half of the final in Kiev after a challenge from Sergio Ramos.

Salah went into the clash in devastating form, but his final was cruelly ended with a shoulder problem.

Zidane insists Real had no specific plan to deal with Liverpool’s talisman and instead focused on their own approach.

Asked if he gave his side special instructions for Salah, Zidane told UEFA: “Not at all! Our game was always the same, regardless of who we were facing

“We told players about the individual characteristics of opposing players, so that they were aware of specific things that those players did

“But I didn’t want to do too much of that, as I wanted my players to focus primarily on our own game.”
