Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid manager, has hailed his team’s resilience, after they beat rivals Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final on Sunday.
The game ended 0-0 after 120 minutes, before Madrid went on to win 4-1 in penalty shootout.
It is the first trophy Zidane is winning for Los Blancos, after returning to the Santiago Bernabeu in March 2019.
The French coach has never lost a final across his two spells in charge, winning all nine.
“I don’t know, it’s just this club,” Zidane told reporters when asked for the secret to the success.
“We always want to win, although this one wasn’t easy. We had to have patience.
“At half-time, we were a little annoyed because we didn’t know how we could score. We were up against a good team. You have to believe until the end and that’s what we’ve done.”
