Casillas: "Thank you for being here; this celebration is also yours"

Real Madrid showered Mallorca with four goals and took a grand total of 100 points in La Liga. As soon as the match ended, the lights went out at the Bernabeu and celebrations to commemorate the team's 32nd league title began.
Academy players waved white flags, forming a corridor to a stage set in the centre of the pitch. Placido Domingo took the stage clad in white and congratulated the champions before singing the Centenary anthem: "Congratulations to all Madridistas for taking 100 points and winning the league title. Now we'll go for the 33rd league title and the tenth European Cup. Hala Madrid!"

Castilla goalkeeper Tomas Mejias was the first to take the stage after the tenor's performance. He was followed by the academy's Jesus, Pacheco, Jese, Morata, Joselu, Mandi, Nacho and Andy. And then came all the first team players in the following order: Carvalho, Pepe, Sahin, Khedira, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Benzema, Ozil, Granero, Adan, Alonso, Coentrao, Altintop, Arbeloa, Albiol, Varane, Callejon, Di Maria, Lass, Higuain, Marcelo, Sergio Ramos and Casillas.

Emotions ran high and the bond with the crowd couldn't have been stronger. The coaching staff also joined the squad on the stage, starting with team delegate Chendo. He was followed by recovery specialist Carlos Lalin, fitness trainer Santi Lozano, Jose Morais, Silvino Louro, Rui Faria, Aitor Karanka and, of course, Jose Mourinho, the only coach who has managed to win the league title in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.

The team proceeded to the Presidential Balcony, where a visibly moved Iker Casillas received the League trophy. "Thank you for being here," said the captain, "This celebration is also yours." Other men to address the crowd were Ramos, Higuain, Ronaldo, Pepe, Marcelo, Granero, Callejon and Jose Mourinho.

The entire team ran a victory lap with the title and fireworks sealed a glorious evening at the Bernabeu. Team and fans have won the title together.

Congratulations champs!
