UEFA Champions League Squad of the Season: Real Madrid feature heavily

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

Real's victory saw them become European champions for a record 12th time as Zinedine Zidane's side became the first club to retain the trophy in the Champions League era.

Madrid also secured a league and cup double for the first time in nearly 60 years, leaving Zidane ecstatic in his post-match news conference.

But let's not forget just how vital Ronaldo's days at Manchester United were for his development.

"The 12th for the insatiable", read a wraparound cover on AS, which hailed the decisive Cristiano Ronaldo as the most valuable player of Saturday's final and said he was "a step away from his fifth Ballon d'Or".

"I have signed a long-term contract at Madrid", said Bale, who last October committed himself to Real until 2022.

At the half way mark, the scores remained 1-1. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his second to make it 3-1 four minutes later.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated firing Real Madrid to Champions League glory by sporting a daring new hairstyle and the Portugal captain has revealed his reason for doing so.

"The first half was even. Juventus came out strong".

Madrid's supremacy was clear in the second half.

Man United to make Morata Spain's most expensive player
Despite his limited opportunities, Morata continued to score regularly when given a chance, netting 15 league goals last season. Morata has been linked with a host of big clubs with Manchester United , Chelsea and AC Milan leading the chase.

"There was an incident there and we're hoping not too many people were injured seriously and we are hoping that they get better very soon". Zidane spoke to us positively and transmitted his belief to us. "We have to give credit to Zidane, he helped us in 2001 by bringing in his talent and changing the course of history, and now as a coach he is doing a tremendous job and we have to thank him".

"We feel we are an incredible team and need to just keep doing what we are doing because I think we can win many more titles in the future".

Juventus, coming off their sixth consecutive Serie A championship and a triumph in the Coppa d'Italia, made the faster start in front of the more than 74,000 spectators at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

The impressive win crowned a remarkable first full season in charge for former Real midfielder Zidane, who led the team to a first La Liga title in five years, delivering the club's first European Cup and league double since 1958.

"That is why he is already the best coach in the world".

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon turns 40 during next season's competition and defender Andrea Barzagli was 36 last month.

"I can't say whether I'll stay for the rest of my life but I'm so grateful for the club for everything it has given me", Zidane told a news conference.

The reigning champions took a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute as a result of a move that began with a rush on the counter by Toni Kroos.
