Gareth Bale admits he will have to consider his future in the summer after climbing off the bench to win the Champions League final for Real Madrid on Saturday.

Bale came on as substitute in the second half against Liverpool at 1-1 to score two goals, including a spectacular overhead kick.

“Obviously I was very disappointed not to start the game, I felt I deserved it but the manager makes the decisions,” he told BT Sport. “The best I have been doing is to come on and make an impact, I certainly did.

“It has to be the best goal in a Champions League final, there is no bigger stage. I am just happy to get the win

“It is a team game but when you are a substitute, it is a game of more than 11 players. I made an impact.

“We know what we have achieved and how good we have been. The league was disappointing but we won the Champions League. It turns out to be a great season.

“We let everyone else speak. We know how hungry we are in the changing room, how prepared and motivated we are.”

Asked about his future, Bale said: “I need to be playing week in, week out and that has not happened this season. I had an injury five, six weeks in but fit ever since. I have to sit down with my agent in the summer and discuss it.”
