Sergio Ramos credited Zidane for leading Real Madrid to their 34th Spanish title.
Real Madrid won 2-1 against Villareal at Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium on Thursday evening and this marked their third Spanish title in the last decade.
Karim Benzema opened the scoring for the hosts and later scored a penalty in the 77th minute which took his tally for the season to 21.
The Spanish defender saluted Real boss Zidane as a ‘unique coach’ who led Real Madrid to a first La Liga title after three years.
He told LaLiga TV: ‘Zidane has been key. He’s the captain of the ship and he led us right from the start of the season. He put a lot of faith in all of us players and we have always felt protected with Zizu.
‘He believed in us, we’ve all believed in the work we have done and let’s hope that it’s valued properly. He’s a unique coach.
‘It’s been a strange season, but our objective was very clear once the league restarted: we wanted to win every game. There were no doubts in our minds and we have shown that on the pitch.
‘It’s difficult to win every game – you can’t win these matches easily, every rival is difficult – but this is the reward for all our hard work and I’m very happy with my fifth title.’
