Real Madrid land 'Decimotercera' with help from Liverpool's Karius - media reaction

Ronaldo drops hint he may leave Real Madrid after final Champions League triumph

The Reds boss told reporters in the wake of a 3-1 defeat: "It's a really serious injury and the shock of the boys was obvious".

Our achievement tonight is the most important thing - we have to congratulate the players because it's not at all easy to do this.

But, never one to remain out of the spotlight, Ronaldo raised eyebrows in a post-match television interview by revealing he is not assured of remaining at Madrid.

Congratulations to Real Madrid.

"The first one.I don't know. Who has the most titles and who has the most goals?" said the Portuguese, who has scored a record 120 goals in the competition.

"Everything imaginable seemed to happen in the game but we did it in the end, and even with everything that happened we always believed in our chances of winning, even when they equalised", said Madrid coach Zidane. He was left on the bench for the biggest game of Madrid's season, the Champions League final, but when Bale was introduced from the bench he made an instant impact. "I don't have any doubts, it's not important, I have to rest now, go and meet up with the Portugal team and in the next few weeks (I'll make an announcement)", he added before he joins up with his country's World Cup squad for the tournament in Russian Federation. I'm not going to hide, in the next few days I'll talk.

'Of course I have something to say, but it wasn't the right time, although I don't regret it, because it was honest'.

Ronaldo's surprising statement that "it was handsome to play for Real Madrid, I'll make an announcement soon" meant that the aftermath of a unique achievement - an unprecedented third title in a row in the Champions League era - turned into a discussion about the future of their most important player.

"Now he has to deal with it, we have to deal with it". We all feel really, really bad, and the way home will not be the best trip we ever had in our life but we have to accept it now.

"They act like they're happy, but I think they should be jealous!"

Cristiano Ronaldo leads the attack as Real look to win the Champions League for the third season running, something no team has achieved since Bayern Munich in 1976. We wanted everything and got nothing, or minus something with the injury of Mo.
