He Real Madrid won the 34th League and Zidane He showed his satisfaction at the telematic press conference after the match against Villarreal. The technician said: “It is huge. It is a constant struggle. There are 38 days. It is at the end when something great like today is achieved. I am very grateful to the players, first because they fight on the field. I have my role and I'm with them, but it's a team thing. It is a very big thing, it is a tremendous emotion. It is very difficult to win the Spanish League, very difficult ”.

"Everyone can comment, especially when you are in the Real Madrid, because it is so. That will not make me happier or less. When there is a criticism, what I have to do is try to do my job. I am passionate and I am lucky to be in this great club with these players because in the end they have fought and we achieved a very nice thing after confinement. There are 10 victories in 10 games, it is enormous ”.

Special league

“I feel very happy, for everything I have. As you said, the first League It was great, but this one has a particular flavor for the two months at home. Then we came back and prepared in a different way and we got a League that, for me, is always the most difficult. We did it, it is everyone's success, because this is a team and a lot of sacrifice was achieved ".

Ramos, team leader

"My relationship with the players is good. As it should be, every day and no matter what happens. Even in difficult times. Also when many things are won we have had difficult moments, but the relationship has always been very good with everyone. They are very professional and respectful, but what interests me is the relationship they have with each other. You highlight Sergio Ramos. He is our leader, he is the engine of the team. We each contribute something to the team, but he is our captain. We have 4 captains with Marcelo, Varane and Benzema, but it is true that Sergio is our reference. I think all Madrid fans feel very represented with Sergio in every sense".


“First of all the fans because in the end they were out of obligation, but they are there. They have always been with us, in difficult times. I think of them, but especially the staff, those who have worked around the team because we are many here and it has been a tremendous job for everyone. But when you get something as important as League it is because we believe in what we do ”.


"It's huge. This that we have experienced is not easy. Is a League which is very complicated, but in the end, by dint of believing in it and working, we have believed and the players are the first because they are the ones on the pitch and callus. I am happy for them. Others said that happiness does not make noise, but inside I am the happiest person in the world right now. Thank you very much to everyone for the support ”.

His emotions

"I am as I am. It is true that I am not too expressive, but I tell you that inside I am very happy. I always said that the League It is not won and today it is. So today I can get my most beautiful smile because today, yes, today you can ”.

Do you consider yourself a better coach than a player?

"Not. They are completely different things. They are 4 years as a coach, and I have played almost 20 years as a player. We cannot compare. If I stay more as a coach we will see later ".

President's words

“I feel happy because it is he as president who has brought me here as a player. I will always be grateful for this gesture of having bought me to play in the Real Madrid, in the best club in the world. And then the story continues and it is thanks to him. ”

Hardest moment of the season

“The most difficult thing was the match before the confinement that we lost with Betis because after having beaten Barcelona at home, it was a difficult club. Then we went home, we stayed for two months, we came back and it's something else. We have another energy, again we wanted to do things well again and we prepared it, we trained well, strong and we got 10 games and 10 victories. In the end I am calmer with what we achieved today and the Betis game is no longer on my mind. ”
