Real Madrid's Iker Casillas overjoyed after finally lifting 'coveted' Copa del Rey trophy

Real Madrid captain is left elated after he lifts the first trophy for Madrid in four years...

Real Madrid won its first trophy since 2008 after needing a Cristiano Ronaldo extra-time goal to beat Barcelona 1-0 in the 107th Copa del Rey final.

Iker Casillas hoisted the famous trophy at the Mestalla and the Madrid captain was jubilant after the full-time whistle.

Speaking to the reporters after lifting the trophy, he said, "Today, we have suffered badly, but we have won a trophy that's coveted by all Madrid fans.

"We thank them for their support and we can repay them now that we have finally won a trophy. I am very happy."

The shot-stopper didn't waste time looking forward to the two more Clasico showdowns against Barcelona as he praised Jose Mourinho.

“Our mentality has been changed. Mou is a phenomenon. We know that the league is complicated but we must always fight for everything.

“Now we have a Champions League semi-final to look forward to.”

Real Madrid will return to the Mestalla on Saturday to take on Valencia in La Liga before hosting Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal at the Santiago Bernabeu next Wednesday.
