Florentino Perez Happy with Madrid's UEFA Youth League triumph

The Real Madrid president addressed the media following Raul's remarkable victory with his young team.

He also lauded the youngsters for their hard work as he outlined the importance of this win.

Addressing the media, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said: "I’ve had a great time. Everything requires an awful lot of hard work and sacrifice.

"These young lads have played four games inside nine days and no matter how strong and youthful they might be, that is significant. We’re delighted to be here in Nyon lifting our first Youth League.

"This serves to highlight something we work very hard on, in our academy. It’s hugely important to us.

"We’ve already seen many players plying their trade around the world, in Spain and of course in our first team.

"This encourages us to continue our focus on something we strongly believe in and always have, which is our academy."

Raul's young Whites took Benfica's U19 team by storm as they won 3-2 in a thrilling final. He's done an outstanding job with the youth team so far and maybe this could pave the way for him to replace Zinedine Zidane in the long run. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
