La Liga: Madrid crowned champions

Real Madrid CF put the seal on the club’s 32nd Liga title with a 3-0 win against UEFA Europa League finalists Athletic Club, after Lionel Messi had scored another hat-trick for FC Barcelona, according to uefa.com. The Merengues kicked off at San Mamés knowing they only had to match FC Barcelona’s result, a 4-1 defeat of Málaga CF, earlier in the evening to end their rivals’ recent domestic dominance and put the seal on the club’s 32nd championship success.“I would like to congratulate everyone, especially all of our families who are the ones who really suffer,” Real coach Jose Mourinho told uefa.com. “They have to live with us every day and they see the emotions of a long season. This is truly a title to celebrate. Personally, though, I had my two minutes on the pitch with the players afterwards and as from [today] the work continues because I feel next season will be just as hard.”The Portuguese had previously won championships while in charge of FC Porto, Chelsea FC and FC Internazionale Milano yet conceded his first at Madrid was the most difficult to attain. “It was a hard thing winning in Portugal, Italy and England but this was the hardest of all,” he said. “”This is my seventh league triumph so I know what emotions are involved. As the great professionals that they are, Barcelona pushed us until the end.”
