A season that promised so little when Zinedine Zidane took charge of a beleaguered Real Madrid less than five months ago ended beyond even the richest club in the world's wildest dreams with an 11th European Cup win in Milan.Cristiano Ronaldo struck the winning penalty in a shootout to cap a remarkable turnaround in Real's fortunes as for the second time in three years they edged a tense final against local rivals Atletico Madrid. Benitez was the fall guy in early January to make way for Zidane to take his first senior managerial role after just 18 months' experience with Real's youth team Real Madrid Castilla.Two years ago Atletico were seconds away from victory before Ramos' header took the game to extra-time where Real ran riot with further goals from Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Ronaldo.
