With victory over Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday, Real Madrid won its record 12th title, and third in four years, to firmly establish itself as the dominant force in European soccer after years of supremacy by Spanish rival Barcelona.

Zinedine Zidane's side thrashed Juventus after a stunning second-half performance to become the first club in the Champions League era to lift the trophy in successive seasons.

"No I don't think Juve has reached the end of a cycle at all", Allegri said. I'm very happy. I consider myself part of the furniture. We've won trophies and of course it is one of the best moments of my career - I have the opportunity to say this every year but it's true!

"But I will be able to rest in the summer, do some more rehab and then come back next season stronger". There is Confederations Cup. "I told them to continue with what we were doing but putting more pressure on them and playing with more width".

In a sizzling first half, Cristiano Ronaldo put Real ahead before Mario Mandzukic's incredible overhead kick, one of the great European Cup final goals, deservedly drew Juventus level under the Principality Stadium roof.

Ronaldo played a pivotal role in Madrid's success, bringing back-to-back titles to the Spanish giants and he said afterwards that there is plenty of life and more trophies in him yet.

"It's not the moment to speak about that", he said when asked about such criticism.

'I speak already a few times about that. Bale has endured the most challenge season of his spell in Spain leading to renewed speculation that Manchester United are interested in bringing him back to the Premier League.

Team-mate Luka Modric believes Real are set to dominate European football for some time yet. It is hard to say (how long), but we need to enjoy what we are doing and we will see.

"We promised to return and we have returned as champions", said Ramos as the squad visited the home of Madrid's local government and the city hall. He finally won the Champions League as a Madrid player in 2002, scoring an fantastic volley in the final against Bayer Leverkusen in Glasgow, Scotland.

'I always try to do my best for the team and things are going well.
