Zidane: CWC important to Real Madrid players

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says the Club World Cup is regarded highly by the players.

Real meet Kashima Antlers in the final on Sunday.

Zidane stated: “This title is very important to us, we came here to win this trophy. We have to play good football and do the job we're here to do. It will be a tough game because our opponents will make it difficult for us but we're ready. We started a bit off colour on Thursday because of the journey, the pitch and everything, but now we're ready to play in another final.

“We came to play another final and we did our job in the semi-final. They've won three matches and they deserve to be in the final. We want to win the game and we're ready to do that, it'll be a difficult clash."
