Zidane claims Real Madrid "won’t s*** our pants"
Zinedine Zidane claims his Real Madrid stars will handle the pressure of being Champions League favourites, insisting: "We won’t s*** our pants!"
Los Blancos are chasing a third successive win in Europe’s elite club competition after beating La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the past two campaigns.
Bayern Munich stand in their way of a place in this year’s final in Kiev, but boss Zidane is in bullish mood ahead of Wednesday night’s first leg at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
He said: "We are not going to s**t in our pants, there is no such thing.
"We like to play these games, are emotionally well, and we are prepared to play a great game.
"Every player wants to play in these type of matches, which are more difficult when you play against a different opponent.
"I have no doubt that we will be at 150 per cent."
James Rodriguez is preparing to face parent club Real Madrid after making the temporary switch to Bayern.
Zidane allowed the Colombian to leave after the midfielder grew frustrated with a lack of game time at the Bernabeu.
"He wanted to play more and I understand, I’ve never had problems with James," said Zidane.
"This year it’s been the same with other players who remain on the bench, and it’s a f**ker for a coach.
"He’s going to be motivated because he’s a football player and wants to do well."Anyone who thinks I’m against James is wrong, he’s a great player."
