“We won more points than the rest and we did it,” Zidane said Moviestar+. “Today is one of the best days I have experienced professionally. Because it’s a league title, and after the confinement. Impressive.”
“It’s strange for everyone,” Zidane said. “But we can’t control it. We would like to have been at Cibeles, but we can’t because of a question of health.
“The fans are at home and they are happy to see their team win LaLiga again.”
