The Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool was watched by a large number of VIP fans at the Stade de France.
Zinedine Zidane, the club’s three-time Champions League winner, was one among them, and he undoubtedly supported his old side in the final against Liverpool.
The family of Zinedine Zidane did not want him to miss the Champions League final.
From Iker Casillas to Raul Gonzalez, Real Madrid’s UEFA delegate, to Rafa Nadal, the tennis star who is currently competing in the Roland Garros event in Paris. Former footballers Ronaldinho and Suker, among others, were in attendance in Paris.
However, the presence of Zinedine Zidane, who was accompanied by his wife and children, raised a lot of anticipation.
The retired footballer returned to the Stade de France, where he cemented his legacy as a legend with the French national team for all time. In the 1998 World Cup final, he scored two headed goals in France’s 3-0 victory against Brazil, a first for the French national team.
Zidane is also a Real Madrid icon, having won the club’s ninth Champions League title in 2002 against Bayer Leverkusen.
The Frenchman’s spectacular volley will live long in the memory. In addition, as a coach, he led Real Madrid to three consecutive Champions League titles, an unprecedented feat in the club’s history.
Interestingly, Zidane did not miss the final to assist Real Madrid in Paris, where he is rumored to be coaching Mbappé’s PSG. He was observed in the stands keeping a close eye on everything that was going on during the game.
One of the first-half events was Benzema’s goal being disallowed, which Zidane was well aware of as a decision that ultimately favored Liverpool and disadvantaged Real Madrid.
