Cristiano Ronaldo has dominated the UEFA Champions League so much that he believes it's time for the tournament to consider a name change.

You know, in honor of him.

Ronaldo and Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 3-1 in the Champions League final on Saturday. Afterward, the Portuguese star had plenty to say.

"The Champions League should change its name and call itself the CR7 Champions League," Ronaldo said, per ESPN FC's Dermot Corrigan. "... I've won five. Top scorer again. I can't be unhappy at that."

Saturday's victory completed Real Madrid's three-peat and gave them their fourth title in five years. Ronaldo also hoisted the trophy with Manchester United back in 2007-08.

So yeah—perhaps it is time to pay tribute to a legend.
