Cristiano Ronaldo joins Gareth Bale in casting doubt over Real Madrid future

UEFA Champions League Real Madrid vs Liverpool

Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in the UEFA Champions League final in Kiev on Saturday, with Zinedine Zidane's side winning a third-straight European cup.

Aside from Karius' woeful display, the other crucial turning point was the first-half injury suffered by Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp compared Sergio Ramos' challenge on Mohamed Salah that injured the star attacker in the Champions League final to wrestling.

Writing once again for The Telegraph ahead of Liverpool's Champions League final clash with Real Madrid tonight, Carragher, one of Liverpool's heroes from 2005's Champions League triumph against AC Milan, has also been appearing on Norway's Viasport Fotball.

He said: "I'll speak in the next few days".

Making an explosive impact as a second-half substitute, Bale showcased athleticism and technique of the highest quality by sending Madrid in front with only his fourth touch of the game in the 64th minute.

Obviously you can not legislate for the kind of mistakes Karius made and Jurgen Klopp will have to answer questions about losing his sixth major final on the spin.

The final had been hyped as a duel between Salah and Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.

This was Bale's night, though, as Real won the European Cup for a record 13th time.

Salah scored 10 goals in the Champions League this season, but the closest he went in the final was a blocked shot before his early exit.

Within three minutes of replacing Isco, Bale made the ideal entrance by scoring one of the finest goals in a European final.

The lengths fans have gone to and the cost is beyond what should be expected.

Karius attempted to throw the ball out to a teammate, only for it to strike France forward Karim Benzema who found an empty net to open the scoring.

Below is a look at what we learned from an encapsulating game as the curtain came down on the European season in style.

He said: "No final decision yet but really not looking good - unable to resolve flight situation".

"It is a serious injury".
