Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that his side were deserving of their 2-1 victory over Barcelona in the final of the Copa del Rey.
The Portuguese, who watched the game from the stands due to injury, heaped praise on his teammates but was quick to point out that they still have the La Liga and Champions League titles to play for.
“We deserved to win because we played better and we created more goal chances but we still have two titles to fight for,” Ronaldo told reporters.
“I’m really happy because this team has been doing really well. I am proud of this team”
“It was a great struggle to reach the final. We are very happy, we have been great, we have to enjoy this day and then think about the league.”
Goals from Angel Di Maria and Gareth Bale either side of a Marc Bartra strike sealed Real’s 19th Copa del Rey title.
Gareth Bale’s excellent solo effort in the 85th minute of the game settled the final, with the Welshman running half the length of the field before poking the ball between Pinto’s legs to give Real Madrid their first piece of silverware of the campaign.
He also mentioned the importance of beating their rivals while also praising manager Carlo Ancelotti for the job he has done.
“To beat Barca is even more important. We have to congratulate the manager”
