In the penultimate round of the Spanish La Liga, Real Madrid defeated Villarreal 2: 1 and became the champion of the country a round earlier. Zidane said he loves La Liga title more.
After the match, Zinedine Zidane, the head coach of the “Royal Club,” who won this title for the third time (2 times as a coach), was very happy:
Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid coach): “I was happier with this title than winning the Champions League because the Spanish League is our main tournament. The Champions League is the Champions League, but I love the La Liga title more.
I am very happy, and I can not convey the words of what my players have done, it is a fantastic achievement.
Of course, this is my role in this victory. But it is the players who believe in your ideas and then go and fight on the field. Now that I look at how happy they are. I, too, am delighted. Even those who rarely played the game contributed to the final victory.
The title is deserved because Real have the most points. For me, this day is one of the best in my professional career.
It’s a weird situation, we should be happy to celebrate the title at Cibeles with people, but it will not come out. Probably our fans from home are also very happy. I’m sure of that. We did it for them.”
