Zinedine Zidane won everything as a player with his club and country. On Sunday night he added a league title with Real Madrid after winning the Champions League last season. It is the 33rd in the club's history and the first since Jose Mourinho was in charge of the club five years ago. You'd think Zidane would take some time to praise himself.
They were fu*cking fantastic
In his press conference after the game, Zidane was only willing to praise his players though: As a trainer, the is nothing better. Professionally, it is the happoest day of my life. More than this can not be achieved. There are still things to be achieved but today, it is the happiest I have ever been professionally. The players deserve it. Everyone suffered, fought and ran and I am delighted for everyone. Everyone has been important. The key to everything with this team is that. Everything is imporant and they were f**king fantasic."
Zidane also said he would dodge Cibeles and let Sergio Ramos take over while admitting that he did not have tears of happiness but said that it was only "at the moment" suggesting he might shed a tear when he arrived back in Madrid late into the early hours on Monday morning.
