Bernd Schuster insisted that he always had faith in his players after Real Madrid retained their Primera Liga title.
Real Madrid beat Osasuna 2-1 on Sunday to stay ten points clear of Villarreal with just three games of the season remaining.
“Building a team can take up to four years because there are huge demands,” said Schuster, who succeeded Fabio Capello last summer.
“The coach should be given the necessary time to win titles and keep working, forming and improving a team.
“I’m not interested in personal stuff and what the title means to me.
“There are always difficult moments and more so at a club like this. From the start, I believed the team was capable of achieving what it has done.”
Goalkeeper Iker Casillas has also believed that Real deserved their success.
“Real Madrid has led the league from the start,” he said. “It makes me laugh that people are saying that Barcelona let the league slip away.”
Real’s Argentinian defender Gabriel Heinze also expressed his delight at lifting the Primera Liga title.
“I am very happy with the success,” said Heinze. “For me, this is wonderful,” Heinze said. “The triumph is enormous and we have demonstrated that we are deserved champions.
“I am pleased with my decision to leave England last summer for a return to Spain. We must enjoy our success but also concentrate on our final games of the season.
“It is important for us to reward our supporters with a victory against Barcelona on Wednesday.”
