Bastian Schweinsteiger Gets A Bad Knock On His Ankle By Mandzukic
European football legend Zinedine Zidane believes Bastian Schweinsteiger will be crucial to Bayern Munich's Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund. The former Real Madrid and Juventus midfielder feels the Germany international is the standout player as the German giants prepare to go head-to-head at Wembley on Saturday. "Schweinsteiger's [my favourite]," he told Bild. "A hard-to-pronounce name - but a very great player for me!" Zidane was in the Juventus side tha lost to Dortmund in the 1997 Champions League final, when the Bundesliga side triumphed 3-1, and he is well aware of the threat that BVB pose as the underdogs in the game. "Borussia Dortmund at the time hadn't had a great season and the team was getting older, guys like [Jurgen] Kohler and [Andreas] Moller, but they were still great and deservedly won," he said of the '97 final.
