Zinedine Zidane revelled in Real Madrid’s “incredible” title triumph as “the Spanish League is the most beautiful for me”.
Madrid won 2-0 at Malaga to lift their first La Liga in five years, and Zidane expressed his delight at seeing his “spectacular” side’s hard work rewarded.
“Happy? It may not seem like I am, but on the inside I’m very happy,” the Coach said after the game.
“After 38 games, this is most difficult and beautiful League. The Spanish League is the most beautiful for me and winning it with this match is incredible. I’m very happy
“Difficult moments? Like always in a season, we’ve worked until the end and battled, and with the squad we have, we only had to think about working.
“It’s been a difficult and complicated League at times, but after 38 games, there’s no-one above us.
“Winning La Liga? It was very important, we’d gone many years without winning it and we know that our daily work is for the League and when you win it, it’s very important.
“For Madrid it’s more so because they’re the best team in the world and we had to go back to winning the League.
“The players? They’re spectacular, it’s to everyone’s credit but especially the players who have fought, the message has been that everyone’s important here and everyone’s been the key to our success.
“Words for Ronaldo? He’s always there to make a difference and I’m happy for him and everyone else. He’s a little different because he’s always there to score.
“Party night? We have to celebrate, we have to go to Cibeles because we have to think about all the people behind us. After that, we’ll prepare for the final.”
