Zidane, who only took over from the sacked Rafael Benitez in January, has won the Champions League as both a player and manager for the club. "At the end getting the Champions League is the best along with winning the World Cup," said the Frenchman.
"After all the work we did I am very proud, it has been a phenomenal job. I'm happy because I've been part of this great club for a long time now. I feel really very proud."
Questions still remain about his long-term future at the Bernabeu."The future? We'll see, now let's enjoy this," he added.
"Of course I dreamed. You always have to dream, think positive, be optimistic, and know that things can get done with work and effort.
"I'm very happy for everything we've achieved together. It's not easy at all. We've really worked hard, fought it out. "When you have players of this calibre, with this talent, you can achieve something big like we have tonight.
