Liverpool played a great game but we had a chance and we scored.”

In the first half, Liverpool won more, but we improved in second and held together, then we played football and it went well on the way to victory.” (Real this season) It looked like it was written, it’s true, we achieved very complicated things. Even I can’t explain it, we are very proud of what we have achieved this season and of winning the final title. It’s a childhood dream.”
