Isco: I hope to renew my contract at Real Madrid "soon"

Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon magnanimously conceded Real Madrid's superior ability had made the difference after his side crashed to a 4-1 defeat in Saturday's Champions League final in Cardiff.

It is the fifth major trophy Zidane has won as coach in just 17 months at the club, following triumphs in LaLiga, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup this season and in Europe a year ago.

At least 1,000 people were injured, seven seriously, after a bomb scare triggered a stampede among Juventus fans watching the Champions League final in Turin, local authorities said today.

No team collects European trophies as ruthlessly as Real Madrid.

"To score four goals against Juve was not easy to do".

"We feel we are an fantastic team and need to just keep doing what we are doing because I think we can win many more titles in the future". I'm also lucky to be part of this club and with this squad.

The Portuguese striker scored twice to become the Champions League top scorer with a total of 12 goals in the competition, reaching a milestone 600th career goal.

"The first half was really tough, against a brilliant team in every aspect, but in the second half we saw the best performance from Real Madrid all season", he said.

"It has been an incredible end to the season by us".

Asked how long the spell can last, Modric responded: "It's hard to say this but, like I said, we need to keep doing what we are doing, enjoy what we are doing and we will see".

Luka Modric is proud of how Real Madrid settled down in the second half and completely took control of the UCL final.

Up to 1,400 people were injured in Turin at a stampede during a public screening of the Champions League final, Italian media reported Sunday quoting emergency services. "And others like in Cardiff, when their win came while playing the best second half in colour that can be remembered in a final".

"They showed their class and the attitude needed to play in this kind of game".

"We know how to play football, when we played the second half it looked spectacular. So yes, just happy to get on for the last few minutes".

Mr Apap, a Juventus fan who flew to Turin to watch the match in the Piazza San Carlo, said with a chuckle: "Juventus got a thrashing, and I guess I kind of did too". "It was really bad - we really thought it was Manchester again".
