Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has hailed a “historic day” for the club, after they beat Juventus 4-1 to retain their Champions League trophy.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice, while Casemiro and Marco Asensio also scored for the La Liga champions, to render Mario Mandzukic’s stunner irrelevant in Cardiff.

Zidane has now added two titles as a coach to the 2002 title he won as a player at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“No one did it [defending the Champions League] and we did it so you can say today is a truly historic day for all Madrid fans, for myself, for the whole [Madrid] family,” he said.

“But you know how things are. Next year it’s going to be even more difficult and we are going to have to work very hard to be able to win once again.

“Today we can say that we are a very good team and that we deserve to win the league and the Champions League, which was not easy.

“It’s been a spectacular year, I couldn’t dream for better.

“In the end you’re playing against a great team and it’s a 50-50 chance but we started with difficulty.

“Second half we were clearly superior, we kept the ball, physically I think we won the game there as well. Thanks to the determination we showed I’m so very happy.”
