Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has labelled Liverpool ‘a great team’ ahead of their meeting in the Champions League final

Real will aim to win the trophy for the third successive season and for the fourth time in five years when they take on the Reds in Kiev on May 26.

Zidane has issued a positive fitness update over Cristiano Ronaldo, but the Real coach is well aware how tough it will be against the free-scoring Premier League outfit.

He said in quotes reported on realmadrid.com: “It’s a great team. We know they have a little of everything: physical, technical, speed.

“It’s an English team who know how to fight. But there’s a while to go yet and I’m not going to go into details.

“(Mohamed) Salah is a great player and has had a great season, but he’s not mine.”
