      “Hopefully it won't be our last trophy of the season. We've started 2019 on the right foot after advancing in the Coppa Italia. We dominated the game today and deserved to win.”

      On the current Juve side compared to last season: “It's similar to last year but with a match-winner in Cristiano Ronaldo up front.”

      On playing at the King Abdullah Sport City Stadium: “We really enjoyed it here. There was a good atmosphere. Now we have a trophy to take home!”

      “It was important to start the year well and we produced a fine performance today. It wasn't easy playing in this heat but we're delighted to have won the trophy. AC Milan showed no fear and played well themselves.

      “We're really pleased with the warm welcome we've been given here in Saudi Arabia too.”
