The key to our triumph was our No. 16, who participated in 12 of the 13 games and scored the game-winning goal in the final on Saturday.
The midfielder has already been named the finest player in this year’s tournament by UEFA’s Technical Observer panel.
It occurs less than twenty-four hours after he picked up his trophy at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, where a decisive second-half goal helped us defeat Inter.
That was his second goal of the campaign, following a spectacular curling effort against German powerhouse Bayern Munich at home.
The international for Spain played 905 of his 965 passes, more than any other player throughout the season.
Rodrigo is applauded for his outstanding season by everyone at Manchester City.
