LISBON, Portugal (AP) - After fulfilling his 12-year obsession of winning the Champions League, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is already focused on winning the next one.

Real beat city rival Atletico Madrid 4-1 in extra-time on Saturday to secure its record 10th European Cup and first since 2002.

Madrid’s obsession with winning “La Decima,” or 10th in Spanish, ended at the Stadium of Light. But a new one appears to have been born as Perez said, “I feel very proud of everything I have achieved as president of this club. Now, it’s time to start thinking about winning our 11th and 12th trophies. Today was completely liberating.”

Madrid also won the Copa del Rey this season to complete a double.
