Thibaut Courtois made several fine saves to deny Liverpool, who end the season with two domestic cups having also failed to win the Premier League.

It was La Liga champion Real Madrid’s fourth Champions League crown in seven years.

Thibaut Courtois was voted Player of the Match in the Champions League final by the UEFA technical team, who praised the goalkeeper’s “crucial saves at critical moments during the first half. He also made an extraordinary save to deny Salah at the end”. The Belgian, who inspired Real Madrid to victory in Paris had the following to say: “It’s been so many years, so much work, coming to the club of my dreams. I told the press yesterday that Madrid would win because of their history. A lot of people criticised me, but today we’ve shown again who are the kings of Europe”.
“I feel good this year. We’ve done a great job. Once you make the first save you focus and later I saved one from Mané and Salah. Nobody was going to take my desire to win the Champions League away from me today”,he added.


Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said ,”The most important save was the Mane one, I think. It was difficult, I really used every centimetre of the two metres I have, and then turned fast to get the rebound. I really felt that today after the first save nobody was going to score against me, and I was so determined to win a Champions League with Real Madrid and that’s what happened.”
