Champions League glory a huge step for Madrid youngster Asensio

After the game Bale said he'worked tirelessly at home to get himself fit again

Real Madrid are champions for the 12th after beating Juventus 4-1 in the Champions League on Saturday.

Rodriguez has been linked with a number of clubs in the past few months and after not even making the bench for Real Madrid's Champions League final against Juventus, he will be expected to leave in the summer.

Zidane praised his players after becoming the first manager to retain the European title since Arrigo Sacchi accomplished the feat with AC Milan in 1989 and 1990.

The teams entered the break level, with Juventus appearing to have the upper hand after Mario Mandzukic scored a wonder goal to equalise following Cristiano Ronaldo's opener. It was the only high point for Juventus on a night when the Italian champion was outclassed in its quest for a first European title in 21 years. "And others like in Cardiff, when their win came while playing the best second half in colour that can be remembered in a final". "We are a very good team and we deserved to win the league and the Champions League, it's not been an easy jo".

Real Madrid's Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo jubilates during a celebration event held at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium after the team won the UEFA Champions League football match final.

Ahead of the game he admitted he wasn't 100 per cent match fit and seemed to expect to start the game on the bench.

"Me and my team-mates have done the double", said Ronaldo. The Costa Rican was forced into action early on, denying former Real frontman Gonzalo Higuain twice, and another impressive stop to deny Miralem Pjanic. Karim Benzema picked up possession and passed to Ronaldo. We can't change that and that has been the success of this year.

The Galacticos managed to find the back of the net 173 times from those 60 outings - at just shy of a monstrous THREE per game.

However, with Modric's steadying influence increasing, the tide turned in favour of Zinedine Zidane's side and they stormed to victory, firing more goals past Buffon than the three he had conceded in the rest of the tournament.

"He was two-time European champion in a year and a half as coach".

But the new look is something, well... new, for the four-times Ballon d'Or victor.
