Carlo Ancelotti insisted he never stopped believing Real Madrid could level the Champions League final.
Atletico Madrid took a first-half lead and held on until injury time when Sergio Ramos equalised. Madrid eventually won 4-1 to claim their 10th European Cup.
“We thought we could tie until the last moment,” Publico reports Ancelotti as saying post-match.
“We fought long and hard and it was easier after the goal.
“It is a dream come true. The happiness is very great. I dedicate this title to all my family.”
