Ronaldo: An incredible season

Two-goal Cristiano Ronaldo hailed Real Madrid’s “incredible” efforts after winning the Champions League against Juventus

It was Ronaldo’s fourth Champions League title – three for Real and one at Manchester United – and his double took him to 600 career goals for club and country.

“My age is just a number, I feel like a young boy,” the 32-year-old said after being handed the man-of-the-match award by his former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I am very happy – an amazing season again. 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!

“This season was amazing again, last season was amazing.

“I have two or three days to rest now then I have a qualifying game for Portugal. Then we have Confederations Cup [in Russia]. It is a long season but I am motivated.

“I am happy, these are good moments.”

Ronaldo’s double gave him 42 Real goals this season, spearheading the Spanish giants’ first La Liga and European Cup double since 1957-58.

But he shrugged off questions about the Madrid fans who have previously whistled him.

Champions League talking points

From Ronaldo’s records and Mandzukic’s magic to Zidane’s tactical tweak, the talking points from the Champions League final…

“It’s not the moment to speak about that,” he said when asked about such criticism. “I speak already a few times about that.

“The most important [thing] is that I again had an amazing season, me and my team-mates have done the double.

“I think people don’t have words to criticise because the numbers don’t lie, you know?”
