Real Madrid assistant coach Davide Ancelotti: Players deserve this Champions League title

Real Madrid assistant coach Davide Ancelotti was delighted for the players after winning the Champions League final.

Real defeated Liverpool 1-0 thanks to Vini Jr's winner.

“I feel empty, I still need to realise what happened. We have done something extraordinary, it'll hit me soon," Ancelotti told Sky Italia.

“Just reaching the Final against a team like this was very difficult, we've done incredible things with these players this season. When the players do that, it brings magic.

“What can you say about these players?! They won six Champions League titles!

“It means being a champion and he is a champion."

On what he and his father Carlo Ancelotti said before kickoff, Davide added: “Just a handshake, tighter than usual, but above all a sense of great faith in these lads. We gave them information on the opponents and how to approach it, but these guys know what they're doing."
