Marseille vs Atletico Madrid: Zidane reveals team he wants to win Europa League final


Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has backed hometown club Marseille, to win the Europa League final against his side’s local rivals, Atletico Madrid.

Zidane, from the La Castellane neighbourhood in north Marseille, never played for the club.

However, speaking to reporters at a charity event in Corsica, the former France captain said the Ligue 1 side can clinch the trophy.

“It’s a great performance to have reached the final.

“They have had a great run. A final is decided on the small details. They’re two big clubs going head to head, two institutions, but OM have the means to win.

“I don’t have any advice to give even though I know Atletico. I believe in Marseille’s chances,” Zidane said.
