MADRID: For a third straight year, Real Madrid celebrated a European title with their fans.

Madrid brought the Champions League trophy home on Sunday and paraded it through the streets of the Spanish capital as thousands of fans saluted the newly crowned champions.

Madrid were back in Spain after winning their 13th European title with a 3-1 win over Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday.

The celebrations ended at a packed Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where players and fans shouted for Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club.

“This [support] is very important for me,” said Ronaldo, who after the final in Ukraine hinted he could be leaving Madrid. “I’m proud to play in the greatest club in the world.”

Ronaldo avoided making any specific comments about his future, although earlier in the day he had left a celebration by telling fans “until next year.”
