Two years ago, your Real Madrid beat Bay­ern 5-0 on ag­gre­gate in a Cham­pi­ons League semi-fi­nal. Be­fore the game, did you say to your play­ers let Bay­ern have the ball, let them play, play, play and then counter-at­tack? Was it that sim­ple?

It wasn’t that sim­ple. I knew it would be im­pos­si­ble to stop Bay­ern hav­ing pos­ses­sion. And when some­thing is not pos­si­ble, you have to find other so­lu­tions. They could have the ball, but we had to de­fend re­ally well and we had the sort of fan­tas­tic play­ers who could make a dif­fer­ence on the counter.
