What Alex Ferguson Said to Cristiano Ronaldo After Champions League Final Revealed

"It will be tough to do better than this year, because we could have done something truly incredible this season", said Buffon, regarded as one of the finest goalkeepers in the history of the game.

But Bale is confident this current incarnation of Real Madrid can achieve similar greatness after completing a La Liga and Champions League double this season.

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

"The players have entered into the legend of Real Madrid and of football, as has our coach", said club president Florentino Perez, as he reserved special praise for Zinedine Zidane.

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.

The Serie A champions progressed to the showpiece in Cardiff having suffered no defeats and conceded only three goals in their 12 games in the tournament, but Madrid blew them away with a superb second-half showing to secure a 4-1 victory. It was the team's sixth title since the competition's new format was created in 1992, two more than Barcelona. "It has been a spectacular year thanks to you", the Real coach said.

A department spokesman told the AP that the agency has not reviewed or approved the ballot's language. The current territorial status option received 6,821 votes, or 1.32 percent.

The former Tottenham player joined Real in 2013 for a then world record fee of £85m.

Zidane was an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti when Madrid won its 10th Champions League trophy in 2014 to end its title drought.

"I have signed a long term contract at Madrid". Cristiano Ronaldo scored his second to make it 3-1 four minutes later.

From there the squad headed to the club's Santiago Bernabeu where a capacity 81,000 fans are expected for further celebrations, including a lights show and firework display.

Asensio scored one of the goals in the final on Saturday.

Madrid will begin next season with two hard matches against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup.
