Julen Lopetegui says Zinedine Zidane was an "extraordinary" coach for Real Madrid but he is determined to write a new chapter in the club's illustrious history.

"We are trying to prepare for the final and the important thing will be tomorrow, what is said in the previous one is hypothesis, it's up to us to want to win it".

"It's been an unusual pre-season, we've been getting together little by little, but those of us who have been here the longest know how this coaching staff works and this is a final, you have to be prepared".

The Croatia midfielder, victor of the Golden Ball at the World Cup, has been strongly linked with a switch from the Spanish capital to Serie A, potentially following in the footsteps of former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo. But in terms of motivation we never feel beneath anyone. The key to success is that we have always been, and with him we felt part of that family.

An early test against crosstown rivals Atletico Madrid in the European Super Cup on August 15 may set the tone for the Spanish coach. The loss of such an important player is negative but that will not stop us from winning.

Lopetegui, sacked by Spain on the eve of the World Cup after Madrid announced he would take over from Zidane, was reportedly not one of the club's top choices for the role.

Paris also described how she's on a lot of medication to help with the pain post-surgery. "I shouldn't have even left bed today". Paris also revealed that the abscess removal "was definitely the most pain that I've ever been through in my entire life".

"These games have to be played with everything you have inside", Koke told reporters of facing Madrid in Tallinn.

Ronaldo left Madrid for Juventus earlier this summer to bring an end to his illustrious nine-year stay in the Spanish capital, which saw him score a club-record 450 goals in just 438 appearances.

Ronaldo moved to Juventus in a €112 million deal and Zidane resigned. "I'm not talking about that". "I have no doubt that it will happen with these players that we have". "I think he is so good in all aspects and his attitude is great since the first day, working a lot, and trying to help the team".

"We are at a time when new players arrive to improve the team".

Will we have Marcelo for another while?
