Then came the Club World Cup with Real Madrid and the end of a five-year Spanish title drought before new highs were reached in the Champions League.

Real produced a ruthless second-half display after an evenly matched first 45 minutes.

He became the first coach to win back-to-back titles in the Champions League era.

"Let me congratulate my boys for what they've done this season", said Allegri, whose side were beaten 3-1 by Barcelona in the 2015 final in Berlin.

"We won the (Spanish) league on the very last day".

They are both the type of players hungry for success and to hold down a place in the team, while bigger names like James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata are likely to leave in search of first team football elsewhere.

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

"Winning again adds to the history of this club".

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice, becoming the first player to find the net in three Champions League finals.

Ronaldo was at the heart of it, playing the ball into the path of Dani Carvajal who cut it straight back to allow the Portuguese forward to sweep the ball sweetly into the far corner.

Ronaldo's effort was eclipsed seven minutes later by one of the all-time great final goals.

Leonardo Bonucci's raking pass was volleyed into the box by Alex Sandro and Gonzalo Higuain kept the ball airborne for Mandzukic to chest it up and send a looping volley over Keylor Navas.

The fans who irritated Ronaldo so much ahead of Saturday's final due to their whistling were silenced in emphatic style with two goals in a 4-1 victory over Juventus that gave Madrid a record-extending 12th European crown.

Asensio tucked in the fourth goal after Marcelo had charged to the byline and Real's dominance was complete.

"I have signed a long-term contract at Madrid", said Bale, who last October committed himself to Real until 2022.

"We were considering more at one point, but I've worked tirelessly hard to get back and to get ready for this game". The numbers don't lie.

"I am very happy - an awesome season again".

"It's not the moment to speak about that", he said when asked about such criticism.

"We are disappointed", goalkeeper Buffon said in comments published on the website of European governing body UEFA.
