Current and former Merengue players used social media to celebrate the Champions League final triumph, while the defeated finalists received sympathy

Gareth Bale, Alvaro Morata and Pepe used social media to celebrate Real Madrid's Champions League final triumph over Juventus on Saturday, as former players offered their congratulations and commiserations.

Ex-Madrid stars Mesut Ozil and Xabi Alonso were delighted to see their old side become the first team to retain the title since AC Milan's successful defence of the old European Cup in 1990.

Allegri: Juventus will be back

There was sympathy for Juventus following their latest near miss, and the Serie A champions were gracious enough to acknowledge Madrid's success, as did fierce LaLiga rivals Barcelona

Manchester United, meanwhile, Europa League winners at Ajax's expense last month, had the last word, offering a reminder they will be ready to tackle Zinedine Zidane's side in UEFA's continental curtain-raiser early next season.


We are the champions!!! Siiiiii
