 "I am on the good side of history and today i needed to win a final for my career for all the hardwork to put a respect on my name because i don't think i have enough respect especially in England," he added.

Real Madrid played and beat the English clubs; Chelsea in quarter finals and Manchester City in the semis to secure a spot in the Champions League finals. 

On the other hand, Liverpool played and beat Benfica in quarter finals and Villareal in the semis that also saw them book their place for the finals in Paris too.

Carlo Ancelotti, the Real Madrid's Boss couldn't hide his joy as he went ahead to hail his men's victory which made him the first manager in history to win the Champions League trophy four times. 

"I can't believe it...we've had a fantastic season. We suffered a lot in the first half but in the end we deserved to win this competition," he said.

"I am the record man. I had the luck to come here last year and found as usual a fantastic club with a really good squad with a lot of quality and mental character. The season was top," added the Real's Manager.

The Red's Boss Jurgen Klopp, despite this defeat, congratulated his boys for an outstanding performance at the finals and vowed to bounce back next season as they (Liverpool) are among other EPL Clubs: ManCity, Chelsea and Tottenham that have qualified for the UEFA Champions League starting next season.
