Real Madrid secure three-in-a-row as Gareth Bale punishes Liverpool

Real Madrid secure three-in-a-row as Gareth Bale punishes Liverpool

He also played a decisive role in winning the 2016 crown against Atletico and struck a memorable victor in the 2014 Copa del Rey final against arch-rivals Barcelona, although his career at Real has been somewhat overshadowed by persistent muscle injuries and a long spell out following ankle surgery.

Our achievement tonight is the most important thing - we have to congratulate the players because it's not at all easy to do this. I don't want to take away any credit from what Madrid have done. The wonderful thing about this squad is that they doesn't have a ceiling.

"Up until very recently both Real Madrid and Bale were talking to each other".

"But I'm pretty sure we are [also] talking about Cristiano Ronaldo. Who has the most titles and who has the most goals?" said the Portuguese, who has scored a record 120 goals in the competition. When Mo Salah got injured they started to dominate with the ball, but we stayed in the game. I know he has shown faith in Karius but I don't think he's of the quality needed if you're going to win the Champions League, if you're going to win a Premier League. 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. "In the next few days I will speak".

Speaking to talkSPORT straight after the match, Karius said: "I don't feel anything right now". I didn't see him so I'm not sure. Now, he has to deal with it, we have to deal with it, we will do that - of course we will be with him, there's no doubt about that. What you can not avoid is the feeling you have the night after the game. I know I let them down.

Real Madrid made history previous year when they became the first team ever to retain the Champions League trophy, it was a monumental achievement in an era where European football is incredibly strong and there were plenty of other teams who could win it. Above all we are fellow pros. Get well soon, Salah. I did the best I could and it was not good enough and I have to accept that, that's it.
