Majestic Modric the key to Madrid's Champions League final turnaround

Yet at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on Saturday, he joined the managerial immortals as Madrid's 4-1 rout of Juventus made him the first coach to win successive European Cups since the great Arrigo Sacchi of AC Milan in 1989 and 1990.

Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand stated categorically that the Portuguese and Barcelona star should be considered as the two best players of all-time.

Real Madrid can win "many more titles" after retaining their Champions League trophy, according to Luka Modric.

Lionel Messi only managed to win Copa Del Rey in the course of the season.

"It was a very special occasion for me personally and it was an incredible feeling to lift that trophy here".

The club president told radio station Cadena Ser: "Zidane can stay at Real Madrid for the rest of his life".

"Another legendary Madrid" was the headline in El Pais, where the match report commended Zidane's achievement in getting his squad to set aside their egos and work together to secure the club's first La Liga and the European Cup double since 1958.

The sight of Juan Cuadrado receiving a red card in the 84th minute for a second bookable offence rather summed up the second half.

They also successfully defended the Champions League title they won last season, becoming the first team to do so since UEFA changed the competition in 1992.

It was heartbreak again for Juve, as the Italians let in more goals on Saturday than the three they had conceded in the 12 games they played to reach the final. "So yes, just happy to get on for the last few minutes". Bonucci's flighted pass from deep was volleyed into the box by Alex Sandro and Higuain chested the ball down before teeing it up for Mandzukic.

He scored from just inside the area with a sensational overhead kick beyond Keylor Navas, a goal that should stand out as one of the best.

After Casemiro put the Spanish champions back in front in the 61st, Ronaldo turned in the third at the near post inside three minutes, and Marco Asensio wrapped up the scoring in the 90th.

Bale now looks forward to a break to help him get back to 100 per cent, adding: "It's been a tough year with a lot of football and the injuries, but the main thing for me is to get my ankle sorted".

Madrid were already in control when Bale went on, but he almost scored after a ball was crossed toward him inside the area.
