“Obviously I did everything i could in order to feature in today's game. Perhaps I wasn't at my best but physically there was little more that I could do, but i coped up until extra time and gave my best. It was worth it to come here and lift the trophy”.
Keep on in this dynamic
“We are doing a great job. Since Zidane arrived the team have been breaking records and this is how that is done. We must keep on working hard, but it is also time to enjoy what we have achieved, rest a little and recharge the batteries and return fresh to play well in 2017, as we look to win the three competitions we are still in”.

It was a week with a lot of nice moments: it was my birthday, we played two games, an incredible final and we won another title".
