Buffon vows to take one more shot at winning Champions League

Wednesday, 07 Jun, 2017

He has made just 27 appearances as Los Blancos won their 33rd La Liga title, becoming the first side to retain the Champions League.

"It's been a hard season and I've worked hard".

"I think we feel like an awesome team, and we need to just keep doing what we are doing, because I think we can win many more titles in the future".

"I can't say whether I'll stay for the rest of my life but I'm so grateful for the club for everything it has given me", he said.

"It's the reason why I came to Real Madrid - to win trophies".

"There's no doubt whatsoever, today is a truly historic day for Madrid's fans, myself and our big family", said coach Zinedine Zidane, who has now won four Champions Leagues as a player and coach.

Real Madrid players celebrated after winning the Champions League final.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice, with further goals from Casemiro and Marco Asensio consigning Mario Mandzukic's blockbuster to a scant corner of European Cup history.

Real Madrid dominated the front and back pages of Spanish newspapers on Sunday after they beat Juventus 4-1 to win their 12th European Cup.

"He (Zidane) is the only one to win two consecutive Champions Leagues", added Perez.

"I think we can get better".

Speaking after the game in his capacity as a pundit on BT Sport, Rio Ferdinand castigated the Real Madrid captain for getting engineering the sending off.

"The city have done an immaculate job in hosting such a great event and we thank everyone for that".

"But I'm extremely happy and I'm very grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to coach these fantastic players".

Zidane has only one year left on his contract, but is widely expected to remain at the team's helm.

"Buffon will still be goalie next season and Barzagli with be with us for another year".

It was Zidane's stunning volley against Bayer Leverkusen that won Real the 2002 title in Glasgow, while a year ago, five months after replacing Rafael Benitez as a coach, he breathed new life into a demotivated team and took them to the Champions League trophy.
