"I'm proud to receive this trophy because it's from the fans and that makes it an important one for me," the Frenchman told the club's website.

"I'm really happy and it drives me on to do more out on the pitch. It was a different LaLiga season and that applies to before things happened, during it and at the end. Coronavirus made it the toughest season yet, but we've worked really hard.

"The Champions League is up next, we know we've got an important game and that it's one we need to win. I'm feeling really good and we're going to prepare for the Manchester City game as best we can."
