Bellingham on UCL win: 'Best night of my life'


Jude Bellingham has described Real Madrid’s Champions League final win over Borussia Dortmund as “the best night of my life” as the Spanish giants claimed their record-extending 15th European crown.

Bellingham assisted Vinícius Júnior for the second goal that secured the 2-0 victory after Dani Carvajal headed in Toni Kroos’ header to open the scoring, and was visibly emotional speaking to TNT Sports after the game.

“I’ve always dreamed of playing in these games. You go through life and there’s so many people that say you can’t do things, and days like today just remind you why,” the 20-year-old said.

“I was alright until I saw my mum and dad’s face there. The amount of nights where they could be at home by 7 o’clock and they’re doing trips at 11, 12 at night to take me to football.

“I can’t put it into words, it’s the best night of my life.”

The win brings to a close a club season that saw Madrid win LaLiga comfortably and win the Spanish Supercopa.

“I think it has got to be up there,” Bellingham said when asked if it was the perfect debut season in Spain.

“We missed out on the Copa del Rey that’s the only disappointing thing I suppose… I can’t have dreamed it much better than this.”
