The Frenchman was asked about whether he likes the way Barcelona play and he responded saying “Doesn't matter how they play, the important thing is that they're at the top of the table. We can say all we like, but they're first and we will look to cut the gap.”
Zidane admitted that he still trusts Gareth Bale, despite his recent injury problems and was also asked about whether the Welsh star will feature tomorrow. He said : “I will not say it. We will see tomorrow.”
