"The strength and intensity of this team has been evident from day one. The players have formed an incredibly tight-knit group”, said the president.
Following the clash with Villarreal, president Florentino Pérez discussed the club's 34th LaLiga title: “We wanted to win this league title and we're very pleased. Everything has gone right and we're absolutely thrilled. The strength and intensity of this team has been evident from day one. It was a hard-fought LaLiga campaign and it will go down in Real Madrid history for being such a special trophy. The players have formed an incredibly tight-knit group as we've seen today and in every game.

“The confinement played an important role for them. They've trained brilliantly and had the mentality to come back with the hunger to win this trophy. We've played every three days and they have put in a tremendous effort. At this time of happiness we want to remember all those who have suffered, who have had a rough time and can't be with us. Our thoughts go out to them".

Sergio Ramos
“He'll be here for the rest of his life. He's more than just a captain because he's forged a group mentality and shown tremendous leadership, he's been a key part of this. He's absolutely delighted".

Zidane is a godsend and I hope he'll be with us for a long time.

“I read a tweet which said Zidane has won a title every 19 games. What more can you say? He's an absolute godsend and I hope he'll be with us for a very long time. People can criticise him all they like because we'll keep on winning titles. Zidane is the chief architect of this LaLiga success”.

Absence of the fans
“We've played a lot of games without our fans. The players say they've felt the support, the strength and the energy despite the fact they weren't present in the ground. We've enjoyed a very good campaign since the quarantine".

“We clubs have more in common than what divides us. The big clubs are suffering without the fans here, it's a hugely important element because for Real Madrid and Barcelona, it represents 20% of our budget”.
