"Nacho's goal is extraordinary. I'm happy for him. It's a goal that will go down in history. My goal in the final of the Novena [the ninth European Cup won by Real Madrid]? This is better, isn't it? It's a goal to go down in history, for Nacho; I'm really happy for him. He deserves it as he's always professional in training".
