Real Madrid have officially released their documentary ‘In the Heart of the Decimotercera’ on Monday where Cristiano Ronaldo’s motivating speech before the Champions League 2017/18 finally got revealed.
Real Madrid have released their documentary “In the Heart of the Decimotercera”.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who is always known as a leader was shown giving the last speech in the dressing room. The former Real Madrid star said its even worth dying to make history.
“Let’s run and fight, and then our quality will show. It’s worthy dying tonight to make history. We will be the first with three titles: play, win and make history. C’mon!”
Ronaldo and co made the history in the end indeed. With a 3-1 victory against Liverpool, they won the Champions League for the third time in a row. Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane’s speech is also included in the documentary. After going to the break with the 0-0 scoreline, Zidane’s second half speech boosted the players.
Zidane told his players,
“I want Isco a little bit closer to the goal. Behind our three midfielders, between their lines. And when we have possession, I want you on the right wing, cause on the left we already have Marcelo, Cristiano and Benzema.”
The moment Gareth Bale came on in the second half, everything started to change. An overhead kick goal out of nowhere gave Real Madrid the lead. And when Liverpool were looking to equalise, Bale doubled the lead courtesy of a howler from Loris Karius.
In the end, Isco jokingly said to the president, Florentino Perez in the dressing room “We make it so easy, presi.”
However, as much as the memories will be cherished, the departure of both Ronaldo and Zidane will be regarded as one of the saddest moment in Los Blancos’ history.
