“The whole squad is like family now and it was incredible to experience this in front of all our fans”, declared Rudy.
Real Madrid clinched la Novena in the Palacio de los Deportes and the players were unable to hide their immense joy afterwards. Sergio Llull was one of the happiest members of the triumphant roster: “We've fought really hard and this is the reward. You work for years to play in games like these and be in a position to win them. We've fought and suffered so much to do this so this feels like a really special moment”.

“We all contributed towards getting these two victories and Nocioni gave us that extra dose of quality. We weren't as pleasing on the eye compared with last year but we played more effectively. What matters is picking up titles and now our minds are set on fighting to win the League".

The Palacio
"We want even more. We want to win the League and make more history. I dedicate this to my family and to everyone who came here to support us. The crowd in the Palacio were just spectacular. Without them this wouldn't have been possible. The fans were our sixth man”.

Rudy: “I'm speechless, we deserved this win”
“The whole squad is like family now and it was incredible to experience this in front of all our fans. We were due a Euroleague victory. We knew they'd play tough, but our defence was key and we didn't lose our cool for a single moment. All the guys need to be congratulated because we've all brought something positive to the table”.

Sergio Rodríguez: "It's a dream come true and the reward for three years of hard work"

“The last three years have gone by slowly, as the European Cup was always in our minds. This is a dream come true and the reward for three years filled with hard work. This is the result of a lot of hard work and long hours in an effort to prepare for this victory. We had a lot of experience and it has been an incredible night. This title is also for our supporters. I was eight-years-old the last time we won this competition and winning it at home was just incredible”.

Slaughter: “This is the best feeling of my playing career”
“It was really tough, but we put in a great performance and I'm delighted. Now it's time to celebrate. Winning this Euroleague title is the best feeling I've ever had during my sporting career”

Maciulis: "This has been a very special week for me"
"This has been a very special week for me because my daughter was born on Tuesday and then five days later I won the European Cup. There are no words to describe this feeling. I've received a lot of messages congratulating me and dedicate all this to my family".
