Germany's Joachim Low rules himself out of Real Madrid running

Cristiano Ronaldo GETTY Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo won his fifth Champions League title last night

Without your support in the worst moments nothing we did would have been possible.

It's nice to see Ronaldo showing his respect to a legend of the game - but obviously we're not privy to what went on behind closed doors.

Despite remaining undefeated in knockout terms in the Champions League in his two-and-a-half year spell, he departed the club that he also finished his playing career at yesterday. I want to thank the fans, who always supported me both as a coach and a player.

Pochettino, who joined Spurs in 2014, said: "I am happy at Tottenham because they let me work and we are growing together. It ended well for me when I was a player and it's ended well for me as a manager".

And it has been claimed Real Madrid could soon approach Tottenham in an effort to open talks with Pochettino to take him to the Bernabeu.

While there he denied that he would sign for Real Madrid to replace Zinedine Zidane.


Zidane made a decision to stand down in spite of Saturday's 3-1 Champions League final victory over Liverpool, with Pochettino since installed as the favourite to replace the ex-France playmaker.

Zidane admitted there were some hard moments over the course of the 2017-18 campaign, mentioning the Copa del Rey defeat to Leganes, and he felt that after two and a half seasons together, he just could not ask any more from the Madrid players. After doing three years, it's the right decision. I'm not looking for another team.

Tottenham's Argentinian manager Mauricio Pochettino tops the bookmakers' list of favorites, with Chelsea handler Antonio Conte and former long-time Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also in the mix.

On paper, the 41-year-old Guti is an outsider as he has yet to cut his coaching teeth at senior coaching level - although, prior to his appointment in 2016, the same could be said about Zidane.

Zinedine Zidane is being lined as the next manager of the Qatar national team on a £50 million-a-year deal, according to reports.

The Frenchman specialises in dramatic departures - in the 2006 World Cup final in Berlin, his final appearance as a player, was cut short when he was sent off for headbutting the Italian defender Marco Materazzi.
