Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos Hail Madrid Triumph
Offensive catalyst Cristiano Ronaldo applauded Real Madrid's Copa del Rey effort that gave Los Blancos their first silverware since their La Liga triumph in 2007.
Ronaldo scored the winner in the 103rd minute on a perfectly placed header on a cross from Angel Di Maria to help Madrid win their first Copa del Rey in 18 years. It was also Ronaldo's first major trophy since arriving at the Bernabéu and the first time he defeated Barcelona in a Madrid uniform.
“It was a very tough game, Barcelona played very well, but, as you know, whoever scores wins,” Ronaldo told the Associated Press. “We are very happy, Madrid had not won this cup for many years.”
Barcelona is Jose Mourinho is no stranger to topping Barcelona—his Inter Milan squad stymied a seemingly unbeatable Barca squad in the UEFA Champions League last year—and his players applauded what he's worked to instill at Madrid.
Sergio Ramos was quoted as saying on goal.com:
“Mourinho is the captain of our ship and we are with him to the death.
“What he is trying to instill in us is working wonderfully.
“We must thank our fans for their support. We are also glad that we have already won a trophy without the season having ended yet.”
