"It's a tremendous joy for the players, for this enormous club and I am happy because it is not easy to win things like La Liga and the Champions League", he said.

According to the Daily Mail, the Welsh winger has ruled out a move back to the Premier League or anywhere else as he is happy at Real Madrid. But the 27-year-old says he is determined to remain in Madrid and add to his impressive trophy collection at the Bernabeu.

Madrid now has five titles more than AC Milan, the second most successful European club all-time.

"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 was reduced to the role of bit-part player after recent injury problems, sent on only for the final 13 minutes at the National Stadium of Wales with the game already won.

Trump cares nothing about climate change
In the communique, the US added a footnote saying it's taking its own steps to reduce the country's carbon footprint. By this announcement, Trump claims he is only fulfilling his "solemn duty to protect America and its citizens".

"Zidane and his staff detected Juventus' defensive weakness, so throughout the week, in preparation for the final, we practiced return passes", Modric told HTV and Sportske Novosti.

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.

Zidane and Co also won the La Liga title for the first time since 2011-12 after a period of Barcelona dominance, as the Catalans won three of the four previous titles.

For good measure, Ronaldo's double took him above Messi to finish as this season's Champions League top scorer with 12 goals.
