Real Madrid fans want Cristiano Ronaldo to get Ballon d'Or honour

Now a four-time Champions League victor, Ronaldo finished as the competition's top scorer for the fifth season running, substantially enhancing his chances of matching fierce rival Lionel Messi's tally of five Ballon d'Or crowns.

"'Cristiano Ballon d'Or", the Portuguese sang along with the fans as he was lifted into the air by his teammates.

They have also become the first team to defend the title since the competition was revamped in 1992. "I have signed a long-term contract with the club", Bale is quoted as saying by the BBC after Madrid beat Juventus 4-1 in the final in Cardiff.

"The truth is it has been a spectacular season", added Ronaldo.

Real Madrid players, unsurprisingly constitute half of the team of the tournament for the recently concluded 2016/17 season of the UEFA Champions League.

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

Bale was speaking to the press after winning the Champions League in his home city, becoming only the sixth player to do so in the history of the Champions League.

"If you had told me that I would have won all of this as a coach, I wouldn't have believed it", Zidane said. "This is what we are here for". A third Champions League win in four years has drawn comparisons to the great Real side that won the first five editions of the European Cup between 1955 and 1960.

'I always try to do my best for the team and things are going well.

The Portugal superstar's opener was cancelled out by an astonishing Mario Mandzukic strike, but goals from Casemiro, Ronaldo and Marco Asensio secured Madrid's third Champions League triumph in four years and 12th in total.

"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".
