The captain described La Liga as “the best league in the world” after a 2-0 win over Malaga earned Los Blancos their 33rd title
Captain Sergio Ramos praised the fighting spirit of Real Madrid to end a five-year wait for La Liga glory and win “the best league in the world”.
A 2-0 victory against Malaga ensured Madrid finished three points ahead of title rivals Barcelona and were crowned Primera Division champions for the 33rd time in the club’s history.
The 31-year-old paid tribute to Barca, along with Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, for pushing Zinedine Zidane’s men all the way, and said his team-mates would take the opportunity to enjoy their domestic triumph before turning their attention to the Champions League final in Cardiff, where they will face Juventus.
He said: “We deserve a lot of credit for title. It’s the best league in the world. I’ve been here a long time and it’s a very tough league to win. Not just Barcelona but Sevilla and Atletico Madrid have pushed us right to the end.
