Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric: We've proved this club the best in the game

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric hailed his teammates after defeating Liverpool in the Champions League final.

Modric was again impressive on the night.

“We're still reflecting on what's happened and what we've achieved and we just can't put it into words," he said. "This club is, without doubt, the best in the game. We always say that because Real Madrid are as big as it gets.

“The players play for this shirt and crest and you've just got to look at what every game and every training session means to us. We all love this club and that's why we've achieved so much success and so many good results."

Modric added: “We couldn't have imagined winning it five times and yet we've gone and done that. Let's hope that there are more to come in the future. Your character, never throwing in the towel and believing until the end, which is what we did today, are vital. We didn't perform well in the first half, but after the goal that we had ruled out, we started to get our game together. We've ultimately won the game and everything that I've just mentioned was key."
