Buffon praised Madrid for the outstanding performance they delivered. He even praised Ronaldo for his bicycle kick and later took his match Jersey home.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is not one to be outdone by anyone but himself in his typical fashion joked: “It was nice, but he should try it from 40 metres,” referring to his own strike against England in 2012.
"One of the most beautiful goals in the history of football,” said Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane while Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said “It’s certainly an extraordinary goal.”
