The Champions League

Lucas Vázquez on Champions League success: “The magic of the Bernabéu helped us.”

Speaking in an interview with AS, Lucas Vázquez shared his thoughts about the Real Madrid DNA.

When asked about the feeling within in the changing room amidst Real Madrid’s unprecedented Champions League triumph, Vázquez said:

“It has been a crazy Champions League. The secret is the feeling of Madrid: never giving up, believing till the end, all fighting in the same direction. They sound like clichés, but that’s what happened.

“There were moments when we were totally out, but we battled through the key situations due to the magic of the Bernabéu and playing in front of our fans. La Decimocuarta has been very special for everyone.”

When asked whether Madrid would see the nerves rising within the opposition, Lucas chose to highlight his own team.

“More than the rivals, it is something about us. Knowing that at any moment we can turn it around. We know that the crowd were there cheering us on. When we were a little weaker mentally, they pushed us. An atmosphere of magic was created.”

Lucas reiterated that no one can doubt Madrid’s title: “The fact we have won so many in recent years means that there are people who want to argue about merit. I think that at this level of titles, you cannot argue with anything.”
