Llull, Causeur, Deck and Hezonja gave their thoughts after the final between Real Madrid and Barcelona, which saw our team win the Super Cup for the fifth time in a row. The captain said: "We didn't convert our shots in the first half but they went in in the second half. We believed in the team right to the end and we clinched the title. It's a sense of trusting in yourself and the team is doing the same".
"I'm not as bad as I was at the beginning when I didn't score a single point, and I'm not as good as that when I scored three in a row. I keep working hard, working to help the team and we've done such a great job to win the title".
"I see how hard he works every day. He's the first one in the gym and the last one to leave. Having a teammate as unselfish with his teammates as Edy is important".
Causeur: "It's nice to get the season off to a good start"
"It was a very tough game. It was the first final of the year and it's always nice to start off in the best possible way, by winning a trophy against a team like Barcelona. We're really happy to get the season off to such a good start".
"I've always got that hunger to win. When you're playing for Madrid you're here for these moments, to lift trophies, whether it's the Super Cup, the Copa del Rey, the Euroleague or the league, it always feels special. We had a very complicated 15 minutes between the second and third quarters. However, we then had the Llull moment. The captain got us back into the game. He was key with his shooting".
Deck: "Hopefully this'll be the first of many titles this season"
"We're pleased and happy to win the game. It was a very difficult game which went our way. It's amazing to get off to such a great start and hopefully it's the first of many titles this season. We're going to enjoy it now and focus on what's to come".
Hezonja: "We're going to compete for every title"
"I'm very proud. I'm very happy for myself, for my teammates, for Chus and all the coaching staff. It's awesome and I want to thank everyone, especially the fans. We must keep working and keep winning. We're going to compete in every game and for every title. That's the mindset of the club".
