Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez saw the team's victory over Barça at the WiZink Center, as the basketball team secured the 36th league title in the club's history. After the match, he had the following to say: “The season's been fantastic in both football and basketball. In basketball we won the Spanish Super Cup and the league against our arch rivals, which is extremely difficult. We just missed out on the EuroLeague, but we’re delighted with what this team's done, with the spirit of sacrifice and the work they’ve put in”.
“I couldn't ask for more and neither could the fans. You only have to see how overjoyed they were. I’d like to say to them that joy here is short-lived and that we have to start working now so that next year we can have another season like this one”.
“This team grows in adversity, that's the virtue they possess and the fans recognise this. We didn't have a lot of our top players, our coach gave us a scare. And we've given our fans our 36th league title. We deserved it, especially in this final series where we only lost one game, there in Barcelona where there were disputes, but we've done a great job”.
