Carlo Ancelotti: I take away with me the memory of the whole year. The key was the first final that we played and won against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. That gave us a lot of confidence. If we repeat this year it’d be really great. We have the chance to compete in all competitions. We have ended the year on a high and we have to feel confidence and optimism ahead of the year to come.
- Knowing it’s the most important jersey in the history of football, to wear it demands responsibility. Every year you have to give your maximum to perform well and to please all the madridistas around the world.
On winning La Décima
- Witnessing the happiness of the fans at the stadium in Lisboa after all the suffering, then the celebrations back in Madrid…..it was very emotional. Any player would have been thrilled by that.
This post is a joint post along with megustaelfutbol & madridistaforever for all things La Decima related. We pooled together our resources to make this so we hope you all enjoy and make use of it. A por la Undecima!!!!!!!

Real Madrid captains Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos pose with La Decima on the pitch after the final. They are arguably the heart and soul of the current Real Madrid and that it would be them two that lifted that long sought after title to the fans later that evening in front of La diosa Cibeles was surely written in the stars.
