"In the end, we're all together and we prepared the matches well", said Zidane, who has won LaLiga, three Champions Leagues, two UEFA Super Cups and as many FIFA Club World Cup and Supercopa titles across two stints in Madrid.

When asked about the incident after the game, Valverde insisted (via Marca) that he did not want to commit such a foul, but he had no regrets about doing so at such an important part of the game.

"I was very angry that I left the team with one less". We endured a fantastic final today.

Courtois himself has come in for a lot of criticism this season, yet the Belgian is in his best form of the campaign and he would prove to be the shootout hero.

When asked about the secret of his success, Zidane said, "I don't know, this club is like that".

"We struggled and we have to work hard now to keep on moving forward".

Barcelona qualified for the tournament as LaLiga champions while the Capital giants secured their spot as they finished second at the league table last season. "We will." rest a little and play again as we can't think of losing [our level].

Real Madrid were essentially faultless throughout, scoring all four of the spot kicks and leaving Jan Oblak with no chance at all.

The Rojiblancos have defeated Barca in the Super Cup semi-finals and beaten Madrid to the end in the final, and Simeone believes they can be happy with their efforts in the Middle East. "We have to improve things because it is a country that has just started organising these sorts of events", he added.
