Dani Carvajal's reaction

"I got to the last stretch of the season very well and I wanted to assert those four Champions League finals and those four titles behind me, with the Colombian in his first final. I wanted to be close to him, I know the danger he could bring and I think I outplayed him for most of the match.
"There was a bit of the key. In the defensive duels we were far superior in many details of the game. And Thibaut's performance, who saved us on several occasions."

Toni Kroos has won three Spanish La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns in what remains as a great and impressive achievement for the German.
