Former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello is delighted to see the fact that his former team managed to end Barcelona’s dominance by winning the Spanish La Liga this season.
As is known, the Catalan Giant has dominated the Spanish La Liga stage in the last few seasons. As we known, Messi et al have won three of the last five competitions.
This season Barca had long enough to master the top of the standings. However, in the end, Real Madrid managed to coup the rival and consistently maintain that position until the end of the season.
In the end, Zinedine Zidane’s troops won the Spanish La Liga champions this season. Well, the success was welcomed with delight by Fabio Capello.
The Italian coach who has handled Real Madrid considers that his former club did look better than Barcelona this season. Therefore, Capello considers Los Blancos indeed worthy of being champions.
“They really deserve to win. They play in the best competitions. They score goals and the others don’t score many goals against them. Real Madrid has ended the monopoly owned by Barcelona.”
“Real Madrid have taken advantage of Barcelona’s downturn, but for everything to be clear, Real Madrid won thanks to their own merits, through no fault of anyone else,” Fabio Capello said.
Not to forget, Capello also sent flattery to Zinedine Zidane, because according to him, this French holds the key behind the success of Real Madrid this season.
“He has done very well. It is very difficult to win this title and I have achieved it. With 10 wins and one draw, that’s impressive!”
“I have understood more than anyone what the club needs. He is wise, with personality and confidence. He is a coach who understands when is the best time for rotation and create changes, “Capello said.
