What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "We want our fans to support the team. We're with them and they're with us. We'll always win with the help of our fans. It's good that our fans are demanding, but at the same time we'll win with their support, I have no doubt. I'm not worried about the reaction of the Bernabeu, not at all. La Real are a team that always make it very difficult for you. They're a very good team that do things very well." [Football Espana]

Eusebio Sacristan: "Physically we feel fine but we're a little sad because we wanted to do something big in the cup. We gave it everything. We can be happy and proud of what we've done but we have to be ambitious and think to ourselves, 'that's not enough, we want more'. Real Madrid deserve a lot of respect in my mind. Despite their current situation, it's the same team that has had so much success. But we are strong and I know we can do something important there." [Sky Sports]
