‘Decima more important than WC’

Iker Casillas has put winning the Champions League with Real Madrid over claiming the World Cup with Spain in 2010.

Casillas captained Madrid to a 4-1 win over Atletico Madrid, Madrid scoring three times in extra-time to claim the much-desired La Decima.

“This is more. It’s so important, it’s more than the World Cup,” Sport reports Casillas as saying.

“It’s been so long, the 10th, it’s a round number, a perfect number.

“I want to congratulate those who have come here and thank the fans who have not said anything bad.

“We suffered. They got a fortunate goal when we made a mistake.

“They had more chances and we have kept coming several times. We suffered more than necessary into added time.

“On occasions it seems a fair result. They defended well, killing time at the end, but we did it.

“It’s what we have. We fail, we succeed. Hopefully people will remember the 10th was won in Lisbon. Sometimes we fail, other times we hit and I can’t complain.”
