Real Madrid ace Joselu dubbed his team mates ‘b*******’ following the Spanish side’s historic Champions League win in London.

Dani Carvajal opened the scoring for the pre-match favourites midway through the second half, before Vinicius Junior sealed the win with less than 10 minutes left on the clock.

It marks the 15th time Real Madrid have been crowned Kings of Europe, with Joselu having emerged as an unlikely hero en route to victory.

The one-time Stoke City and Newcastle United flop popped up with two late goals during Real Madrid’s semi-final win over Bayern Munich last month.

But despite seeing off Borussia Dortmund in the final, Joselu has jokingly hit out at his team mates for the way they’ve celebrated their latest Champions League triumph.

Speaking to Spanish outlet AS, the 34-year-old said: “For me it is the first. These b*******… some of them don’t even celebrate it anymore.

“The locker room is very happy to end the season like this, there is no better way. I couldn’t tell you how I feel, there are many things and many emotions that go through my head.”

He added: “I have been able to share this moment with my children, my wife and my mother. My oldest son was crying like a muffin. The little one still doesn’t know that much and my wife knows everything we’ve been through these years.

“The day I signed here I was dreaming about these. It is the title that everyone wants to win”

Joselu’s arrival in the Spanish capital at the start of the season did raise some eyebrows, given he’d just been relegated to the second tier with Espanyol.

However, the stop-gap signing proved his worth for the Spanish giants by scoring 17 times across all competitions, including the decisive double against Bayern.

And while he might’ve come off the bench when the game was already won, the Spaniard praised the players who started, particularly the winning goalscorer Carvajal.

The striker said: “The coach told Carvajal that it seemed like I was finishing.

“I am very happy for him because there are already six Champions Leagues, he has won them all, he is the best full-back in the history of Madrid.

“There are very few players who can say that they have won six European Cups. Carvajal is the only one who has been a starter in all of them. He had promised that he would tattoo me.”
