Real Madrid put a good part of its players in an exclusive club that is close to Paco Gento’s, player with the most European Cups with six, by winning the Fourteenth in Paris this past Saturday, beating Liverpool 0-1 with a goal from Vinicius Jr.
While for Vini himself, Valverde, Camavinga or Courtois, MVP of the final, it was his first Champions League, for a good part of the squad it was their fifth win. A journey that began in 2014 in Lisbon and has taken them to Milan, Cardiff, kyiv and Paris.
Real Madrid, through its social networks, boasted about a part of its squad that has accumulated ’45 Champions Leagues’ adding up its winners. All those who are part of the Club de las Cinco posed with the latest Champions League. Casemiro, Kroos, Marcelo, Nacho, Isco, Benzema, Modric and Carvajal posed together for the last time on the pitch at the Bernabéu in celebration with the Real Madrid crest in the background.
For Marcelo, Bale and Isco, all important in winning the various European Cups, it was their last dance in white. The three will end their contract at the end of June and will no longer be part of the Real Madrid discipline.
With this victory, all these players rise in the historical record, tying the legends of the first Real Madrid to dominate Europe (Di Stéfano, Zárraga, Marcos Alonso, Lesmes, Rial and Juanito Alonso), the best player in modern white history, Cristiano Ronaldo, who won four with Madrid and one with Manchester United, and two Milan legends, Alessandro Costacurta and Paolo Maldini.
