Manchester City completed the treble by winning the Champions League after a 1-0 victory over Inter Milan.

Rodri’s strike was enough to down the Nerazzurri in Istanbul, adding their first European crown to the Premier League and FA Cup.

A late save from Ederson denied Romelu Lukaku from close range as City edged over the line.

“I’m emotional, it’s a dream come true. We’ve waited all these years, 20, 30, 40… Last year we were so close. It’s unbelievable,” Rodri told BT Sport.

“It wasn’t easy, what a team we face, the way they defend and counter attack, they are a great team. We give everything.

“What an effort from everybody, I was playing s*** to be honest. I scored a goal, unbelievable. We didn’t expect to play well like always, the emotions are there. We performed like animals. We made history. This group, this project is to have more and more ambition, these moments may never happen again.”
