Roberto Carlos says it is about time Real Madrid won the Champions League again, fresh from securing the Primera Division title.
The Spanish giants are Europe's most successful club, having been crowned champions of the continent a record nine times.
However, with its last triumph coming a decade ago, the Brazilian feels his former club need to set its sights on ruling Europe supreme once more.
“It is time for Jose Mourinho and the team to win the Champions League,” the legendary full-back admitted to AS. “Champions League glory will come when they have more luck. It is difficult to win three in a row like we did, and the team need a little more experience.
“They have to keep winning titles and they should not be in a hurry or get pressured. Madrid are always great, they always makes the best signings. In the near future this group can soon win the tenth and eleventh crown for the club.”
The Blancos were eliminated from the competition in 2011-12 at the semi-final stage by eventual runners-up Bayern Munich.
