newgersy/ Real Madrid can now call themselves the kings of Europe



Youngsters may find it hard to believe but there was once a time when Real Madrid were far from dominant on the European stage.
A barren thirty-year spell passed without a European triumph, having taking the European Cup by storm with seven of the first 11 editions after its creation in the 1950s.
But Real are back now, winning the competition in three of the last four seasons to take their tally to a record 12.
Since the restructuring of the European Cup to the Champions League in the 1992/93 season, Real have lifted the famous trophy six times, compared to Barcelona's four.
Zinedine Zidane's incredible first two seasons with the club means that the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit can call themselves the true kings of Europe, with those six Champions League successes outnumbering both Barcelona and AC Milan's European Cup and Champions League totals of five.
Madrid are now the first team to have retained the Champions League, another impossible made possible by Los Blancos.
