Real Madrid coach Zidane: I repeated what Mbappe said

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has dismissed criticism over talking up the prospect of Kylian Mbappe arriving.

Zidane had suggested that Mbappe's dream was to play for Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo wasn't happy with how he spoke about the forward.

"I didn't say anything. I only said what the player said; that his dream was to play here," Zidane said in his pre-match press conference.

"Then everyone gets what they want."
