Real Madrid coach Zidane tribute to Lucas Vazquez after victory at Inter Milan

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane paid tribute to Lucas Vazquez after victory at Inter Milan.

Real won this Champions League encounter 2-0 at Inter via Eden Hazard's goal and Achraf Hakimi putting through his own net. Arturo Vidal was also sent off for Inter.

Vazquez was impressive on the night and Zidane said: “He's an important player for us, for the team's dynamic. He plays with great desire from the moment he steps onto the pitch until the last minute, he gives it everything. I've always valued his work and his effort, what Lucas gives us on the pitch. We're really pleased with him. He's a product of the youth academy. He has Real Madrid in his heart and every time he plays he gives it his all.

"I'm pleased for him, for the team and for today's efforts. We have to continue like this, everyone together. I don't know how long Lucas has been here. There are many players like him, Nacho and others who have been here for a long time and deserve to stay here."
