Zinedine Zidane has proven that he is not just a brilliant football player but a coach as well after winning the Champions League three times in a row with a 3-1 win over Liverpool.

Zidane has made history for being the first coach to achieve such an amazing feat. And Real Madrid is the first team to score a hat-trick in Champion League titles since Bayern Munich which was back in 1976.

Real Madrid has won four titles in the past five years and 13 in total. It was also the fifth title for Cristiano Ronaldo but the man that took the day was undoubtedly Gareth Bale who came off the bench to score twice, one of them being one of the most spectacular goals in Champion League history.
