Liverpool picked up a sixth European Cup title by edging out Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid.
Mo Salah fired home a first-minute penalty after Moussa Sissoko was adjudged to have blocked Sadio Mane's cross with his hand in the box, before Divock Origi rifled home a second in the closing stages.
Tottenham certainly had the better goalscoring chances, and Winks has claimed to the North Londoners' official website that he and his team-mates deserved the victory.
“In my opinion, of course I’m biased, I believe we should have won but I’m so proud of everyone. It’s been an incredible run for us.
“We gave it a real go, created chances and on another day, we win. It’s an unfortunate one and all I can say is the way we recovered after the early penalty was fantastic. The character of this squad cannot be questioned.”
Both teams had enjoyed fairytale comebacks in the semi-final stage to reach Madrid. Liverpool overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit to Barcelona by smashing them 4-0 in Anfield, while Mauricio Pochettino's side scored three second-half goals in Amsterdam to beat Ajax on the away goal rule.
