French Coach Zinedine Zidane has steered his Real Madrid team to a record 34th Spanish League Title following Madrid’s 2-1 victory over Villareal at Santiago Bernabeu. Madrid’s fierce arch-rivals Barcelona succumbed to a surprise defeat against Osasuna to hand the league title to Zidane’s Madrid.
Thanks to a double from his French compatriot Karim Benzema who has had a good season with the Spanish football club, Zidane has now lifted the trophy on two occasions since taking over as coach of the team he once played for.
In an era where Barcelona have dominated Spanish and European football, this is just Madrid’s third league title in 12 years a fact that highlights just how much this recent success means to Zidane and Real Madrid itself. It is also the club’s first league title in three years.
Following the break of football across Europe due to the Corona virus outbreak, Madrid returned sharper than their rivals, winning all ten games since the resumption of the league.
Zidane described the win as one of the best days of his life professionally, “This is a tremendous feeling because what these players have done is incredible. I am lost for words because I am too emotional.”
