Zidane Proclaims Champions League Win As A ‘Historic Day’ For Real Madrid
Zinedine Zidane didn’t shy away from basking in the glory of back to back Champions League titles.
Zizou is yet to complete two full seasons as boss at the Santiago Bernabeu, but already has two Champions League titles in his kitty.
The Los Blancos also topped up the UCL crown with a La Liga title win, as they secured their first double in over 60 years.
“No one did it [defending the Champions League] and we did it so you can say today is a truly historic day for all Madrid fans, for myself, for the whole [Madrid] family,” he said.
“But you know how things are. Next year it’s going to be even more difficult and we are going to have to work very hard to be able to win once again.
“Today we can say that we are a very good team and that we deserve to win the league and the Champions League, which was not easy.”
The final in Cardiff was anybody’s game till the half-time with a 1-1 but Juventus just lost the plot in the second half as Real ran away with the title.
“It’s been a spectacular year, I couldn’t dream for better,” Zidane said.
“In the end you’re playing against a great team and it’s a 50-50 chance but we started with difficulty.
“Second half we were clearly superior, we kept the ball, physically I think we won the game there as well. Thanks to the determination we showed I’m so very happy.”
