Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale: Man Utd? I'm happy where I am

Ronaldo scored twice in the 4-1 victory over Juventus in Cardiff as Real became the first side to retain the Champions League trophy in the modern era.

"This is one of the best moments of my career - I have the chance to say this every year".

"But I will be able to rest in the summer, do some more rehab and then come back next season stronger".

"I feel like this is the best team in history", Alvaro Mora, a fan who had travelled over 500 kilometres from the southern city of Almeria to take in the celebrations, told AFP.

Ronaldo was handed the Man of the Match award by his former manager Alex Ferguson, a reminder of his early years as a devastatingly quick winger at Manchester United, with whom he won his first Champions League final, and of course scored. The Frenchman, who won the Champions League as a legendary player for Real between 2001 and 2006, has enjoyed spectacular success since taking his first role in senior management just 18 months ago.

Now a four-time Champions League victor, Ronaldo finished as the competition's top scorer for the fifth season running, substantially enhancing his chances of matching fierce rival Lionel Messi's tally of five Ballon d'Or crowns. "We are winning trophies and I am happy".

"I am very happy - an incredible season again".

Zinedine Zidane favoured in-form Isco for a final that Bale entered as a 77th-minute substitute, making a timely return from a calf injury as Real Madrid overcame Juventus in surprisingly comprehensive fashion. "The Champions League is always hard to win, especially against a team that had only let in three goals so far this season".

"But I'm extremely happy and I'm very grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to coach these fantastic players".

Italian powerhouse Juventus quickly responded two minutes later when Croatian forward Mario Mandzukic executed an acrobatic volley to equalize. "I had a meeting with him and he told me I was going to be important to him if I got some points and I did it", the Spain global explained.

Ronaldo added his second goal in the 64th minute to give his team a comfortable 3-1 lead. And to compound their misery, Asensio beat Buffon again as the 39-year-old goalkeeper missed out on a first European title.
