Isco has reassured fans he will still be at Real Madrid next season after winning LaLiga on Sunday.

The 32-year-old netted 25 goals in 29 La Liga appearances this season, and his strike against Malaga took his overall tally for the campaign to 40 goals.

Real Madrid also wasted chances to stretch their lead before Benzema bundled the ball in on the rebound in the 55th minute after Kameni had saved from Sergio Ramos following a corner.

The results put Madrid on course for a double this season as they are set to face Juventus in the final of the UEFA Champions League with Ronaldo now in the best form of his career and on the way to yet another Baloon d'Or.

However, after the game Ronaldo let his mouth do all the talking. But the talismanic striker had the last laugh.

"I am not a saint, but I am also not a devil like many people think I am".

Coach Zidane said that the win is very important to the team, since it's been a while since they've held the Spanish La Liga trophy aloft.

Zinedine Zidane claimed on Sunday winning La Liga as Real Madrid coach surpasses his stellar achievements as a player and even lifting the UEFA Champions League in his debut season as a coach past year. In 2011 and 2012, Cruz won consecutive Champions League titles with Lyon.

Zidane described winning the league crown as "the happiest day of his life" after Los Blancos recorded a 2-0 win at Malaga to become champions on Sunday.

"The League is your day to day and it is very important when you win it and even more so for Madrid", Zidane said.

"When you're the Real Madrid coach you know that expectations are very high but I like that. We were not consistent enough - especially earlier in the season at home - and we have paid for that", said Enrique.

In the aftermath of the win, different Real Madrid players shared their thoughts and jubilation with the press.

"There are always doubts during the season but we've managed to keep working and fighting hard and we've done really well".
