Thomas Bjorn said being Europe's Ryder Cup captain was "easy" because of his "amazing" players as they regained the trophy at Le Golf National.
Francesco Molinari's fifth win of the week clinched the Ryder Cup for Europe on Sunday as he defeated Phil Mickelson to take his team to an unassailable 14.5 points after a dominant display.
And captain Bjorn was not interested in taking credit for himself, saying his job was made simple by the efforts of the players.
"This has been easy. They have been amazing," he told Sky Sports. "The way they bonded with each other, the things they have done, how they stuck together and did a proper job...
"They were determined. They set out to do the job themselves and it was easy to guide them. They wanted this desperately and stood up.
"So many things have happened this week: Francesco and Tommy [Fleetwood], Sergio [Garcia taking a points record], there's so many great stories. It's all down to 12 players."
