Gareth Bale lifts the Champions League trophy after Real Madrid beat Juventus in Cardiff

Gareth Bale lifts the Champions League trophy after Real Madrid beat Juventus in Cardiff

In doing so, he reached 600 career goals with plenty more surely to come.

"I told the players to keep what they were doing but to play wider and put more pressure on them, and I said that when we got the ball play as you know how", Zidane said. I'm in a good moment.

"Any team that wins the Europa League should feel honoured to be able to take on the best team in Europe with the European champions Real Madrid", he said.

Cristiano Ronaldo just seems to get better and better.

The praise spread further afield, with France's L'Equipe labelling the winners "Unreal Madrid", while Portugal's E Bola featured a picture of Ronaldo leaping in celebration with the headline "Jump to eternity".

"We've made more history", Bale said. There will be new players coming in as is always the case but I can guarantee that, as long as he's fit, he will play.

The two Spanish clubs have dominated in the Champion League, winning six of the last nine titles, but Madrid had gone 12 years without lifting the trophy while Barcelona and Messi thrived.

But seven minutes later and Juventus were level as Mandzukic chested the ball up inside the area after being teed up by Higuain before hooking a stunning overhead kick over Navas and into the top corner of the net.

The former France star has won the Champions League twice in his 17 months in charge and overseen Real's first LaLiga and European Cup double since the 1957-58 season.

"He (Zidane) is the only one to win two consecutive Champions Leagues", added Perez. "This is one of the most important years for me, I hope there will be more like this in the future".

Real Madrid's impressive trophy cabinet now includes a dozen alone from the Champions Cup/League, and Zinedine Zidane has now contributed to three of them.

"This year was incredible again, last year was awesome too".

Domination was verified after the break when Madrid went back in front - through Casemiro's strike which deflected off Sami Khedira - and this time the lead was retained. And to compile their misery, Asensio beat Buffon again as the 39-year-old goalkeeper missed out on a first European title.

"Buffon will still be goalie next season and Barzagli with be with us for another year".

It might be his perfectly coifed hair and dazzling set of teeth that has netted the Portuguese millions of followers, but it was the sorcery in Ronaldo's boots that earned Los Blancos their third Champions League trophy in the last four seasons.
