Zinedine Zidane and the Real Madrid players have made Sunday their parade in the streets of Madrid in front of tens of thousands to celebrate their victory in the champions League.
Au lendemain de leur victoire en finale de Ligue des champions contre Liverpool (3-1), leur troisième de suite, joueurs, dirigeants et membres du staff du Real ont paradé avec le trophée à Madrid ce dimanche. Cristiano Ronaldo et ses partenaires ont quitté le stade Santiago-Bernabeu en bus vers 16h00 pour se diriger vers la Cathédrale de l’Almudena, dont les cloches retentissaient.
In the first stage of the traditional celebrations of the real, the players presented the Cup to the Virgin of Almudena, patron of Madrid. “Zinedine Zidane has always worked with humility in order to become the best trainer in the world”, said the president of Real, Florentino Perez, during his speech in the cathedral before the French coach, sitting in the first row alongside captain Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Ronaldo.
The players then headed to the regional government and the Madrid city hall to present the trophy to Angel Garrido, president of the region and Manuela Carmena, mayor of the city. After passing near the fountain of Cibeles, the players of the Real headed towards Santiago-Bernabeu, where a great feast is planned in the evening.
