Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand speaking on BT Sport:"I'd have gone off on a stretcher [if I'd tried Gareth Bale's bicycle kick]. Zidane's was great but that one from Gareth Bale... we were sat here gobsmacked.
"There'll be kids who say 'I was here' when they remember that goal from Bale. It makes people just jump out of their seats."
Ex-Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson on BBC Radio 5 live: "This is a great achievement, but no, this Real Madrid is not one of the great sides. Not as the good as the Barcelona side with Xavi, Andres Iniesta, and Lionel Messi, it wasn't and isn't as good as that."
Ex Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard speaking on BT Sport: "On a human level you can feel sadness for Loris Karius.
"That's with him for life now. Mistakes like this are not for this level, the Champions League final. The first one, which kind of changed the momentum of the game, I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
"It's a horrible moment for him. he needs some big support from his team-mates now. He didn’t mean that but it’s cost them the game."
Former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard speaking on BT Sport: "I’ve won one and lost one. You don’t remember the ones you lose. At the end of the day those two mistakes have been pivotal to the result.
"Liverpool have played well tonight. Losing Mo Salah had a psychological effect on everyone and Madrid came good from there.
"We spoke about experience before the game, know-how on the big stage and the Madrid players being more switched on. The first goal is a keeper in a rush.
"It's a rush of blood to the head, all he had to do was stay calm and he's made a mistake and been punished."
