Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane says leading Los Blancos to the La Liga title was one of the happiest days of his glittering sporting career.
Real beat Malaga 2-0 on the final day of the season on Sunday to finish three points clear of Barcelona and reclaim the title for the first time since 2012 and their 33rd overall.
Zizou says: “For me the Spanish league is the best in the world so it’s an incredible feeling to win it.
“It was very important to win the league after many years without it and we know that the league is the competition of every day and it’s a huge thing to win it.
“It’s even more important for Real Madrid because it’s the biggest club in the world and we had to win it again.
“It’s a spectacular day, everyone deserves credit but above all the players have fought, the message has always been that every player is important and that’s been the key to this success.
“When you’re the Real Madrid coach you know that expectations are very high but I like that. Winning the league is the best thing imaginable.”
Zidane has won four trophies in 16 months since taking charge of the Spanish giants and he is one step away from becoming the first Real coach since 1958 to win the European Cup and league title in the same season.
Real meet Juventus in the Champions League final on June 3 and will be bidding to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since AC Milan in 1990.
