Gareth Bale could not hide his delight after helping Real Madrid thrash Bayern Munich to reach the Champions League final.
Sergio Ramos scored two headers from set-pieces at the Allianz Arena, before Cristiano Ronaldo rounded off a counter-attack and fired in a free-kick late on.
This is why I wanted to come to the biggest club in the world
And Bale, who joined Los Blancos from Tottenham in a world-record £85m deal last summer, was thrilled by the manner of the 5-0 aggregate win over the defending champions.
“It’s a fantastic result for us,” Bale told ITV. “We’ve been working hard, got our tactics right, played well and deserved the win.
“We are happy to be in the final but still have one game to go. Everybody put in 100 per cent, no matter who it was they put in a performance.
“This is why I wanted to come to the biggest club in the world, to win trophies in massive games.
“We still haven’t won it yet, we have a difficult game in the final whoever it may be but I’m looking forward to it.”
