After the Kyiv triumph, Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo suggests the UEFA Champions League should be named after him.
Ronaldo and the Champions League seem to be the perfect marriage as the reigning world’s best is now fondly addressed as ‘Mr Champions League’ due to his exploits in the competition’.
He won his fifth Champions League title last week Saturday versus Liverpool – more than any other player.
Final one from Ronaldo [hopefully] "The Champions League should change its name and call itself the CR7 Champions League… I've won five, top scorer again, I can't be unhappy at that."

Asked if he was disappointed not to score in this season’s final, Ronaldo replied: “Who’s disappointed?
“Perhaps they need to change the name of the Champions League to the CR7 Champions League.
“Who has the most titles and who has the most goals?”
Now, Ronaldo boasts of almost every record in Europe’s premier club competition.
Cristiano Ronaldo has the most Champions League:
Group stage goals
…And he's now won a record five titles.
