Dominant Real creates Champions League history

Ronaldo scored twice in the win to finish as the Champions League top goalscorer for the fifth consecutive season, while he has now scored 600 goals for club and country throughout his career as the silverware and individual accolades continue to roll in.”My age is just a number, I feel like a young boy”, said the 32-year-old after being handed the man-of-the-match award by his former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.Having lost yet another Champions League final in the colours of Juventus, goalkeeping legend Gianluigi Buffon says he will try again next season to lift the one club trophy that has so far eluded him.”Then we will get some rest and later we will start thinking about next season”.”Let me congratulate my boys for what they’ve done this season”, said Allegri, whose side were beaten 3-1 by Barcelona in the 2015 final in Berlin.With the crowd in a frenzy, four-time Ballon d’Or victor Ronaldo – who finished the season with 42 goals in all competitions and as the Champions League’s top scorer – ended up singing, “Cristiano, Ballon d’Or” and the fans joined in.’It’s not the moment to speak about that, ‘ he said when asked about the criticism.”We hope not too many people were injured and we hope they get better soon”. Me and my team-mates have done the double. I always try to do a good job, with goals and the numbers don’t lie. We can say that it is a historic day for everyone at Real Madrid, for me, for the players, for our families… That is what we worked on and that is how we scored three of our goals in the final.”This is only a positive thing for the team“.The Portugal superstar’s opener was cancelled out by an astonishing Mario Mandzukic strike, but goals from Casemiro, Ronaldo and Marco Asensio secured Madrid’s third Champions League triumph in four years and 12th in total.Zinedine Zidane, a head coach for only 17 months, became the first boss to oversee back-to-back European Cup successes since Arrigo Sacchi’s fabled AC Milan team won the tournament in 1989 and 1990.”If he (Zidane) can see something that we can do on the pitch, he tells us, and we are trying to do it in our best way”, Modric said.
