I’m very comfortable here. With these players it’s impossible not to win.”advertisementFriendship goals! SIIIIIIIIIUUUUU!@MarceloM12@Cristiano#CHAMP13NS pic.twitter.com/we2Ona6vyh#CHAMP13NS (@realmadriden) May 27, 2018While Ronaldo’s words after the Champions League victory came as a shock, Gareth Bale’s statement was rather on expected lines.Bale revealed that he was fit the whole time after the first six months and “I need to playing week in, week out. Will sit with my agent in the summer and discuss future.”He also expressed his disappointment over not starting the match and said, “Very difficult not to start the game. When I come on, I want to make an impact. I had to make an impact and I did that.”While Ronaldo’s words for fans in Madrid must have turned their shock into feeling of jubilation, Bale’s exit looks inevitable. It remains to be seen though of who wants him and can afford him — Manchester United being most likely.Madrid’s celebrations on Sunday were similar to their trophy parade last year and yet again, thousands of supporters turned up to greet and celebrate alongside Zidane’s historic-making side.The team began their celebrations with a service at the Almudena Cathedral before visiting the city chambers and later the city hall, addressing gathered fans in the Plaza del Sol.#ZIDANE#CHAMP13NS pic.twitter.com/82z6m5CqWA#CHAMP13NS (@realmadrid) May 27, 2018″Fortunately, this is turning into a routine for us,” said Real captain Sergio Ramos of his team, who became the first side since Bayern Munich in 1976 to win the competition three years in a row.”The team received support when we needed it the most and this also belongs to you. Now we have to think about winning number 14, because that’s what this club obliges us to do.”(With Reuters inputs)last_img
