President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad has congratulated Real Madrid players for winning the Spanish Super Cup.
Real Madrid had clinched their 11th Spanish Super Cup on Sunday, after beating rivals Atletico Madrid on penalties, following a goalless 120 minutes in Saudi Arabia.
Atletico almost won the game in extra time, but Alvaro Morata was hacked down by Federico Valverde, as he raced through one on one with five minutes left.
Dani Carvajal, Rodrygo Goes and Luka Modric scored for Real in the shootout, while Atletico’s Saul Niguez hit the post and Thomas Paratey saw his effort saved by Thibaut Courtois.
Los Blancos captain, Sergio Ramos, made no mistake with his kick to hand Zinedine Zidane his 10th trophy as manager of the club.
However, Ahmad who took to his Twitter handle wrote: “Spanish Super Cup is ours. Good outing lads. #HalaMadrid #RMSuperCopa.”
