Without your support in the worst moments nothing we did would have been possible. "After that we'll see what happens".

In a tenure spanning just two-and-a half years, Zinedine Zidane managed to do a three-peat of the Champions League while also getting his hands on the league title in the 2016-17 season. I'm sure they will find a strong successor but that is not for me to worry about.

Sat alongside Real president Florentino Pérez, the World Cup victor said he felt he had taken the club as far as he could: "I have taken the decision to not continue into the next season".

"With Bale potentially leaving Madrid, I think Real will have a list of players that they will want to replace him with, and I believe that Hazard will be on there".

Despite all these glaring issues, Pochettino's refusal to dismiss his links with Real Madrid suggest he is open to the prospect of moving to the Spanish capital, as he offered up these comments at a press conference in Barcelona on Friday.

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.

Afridi to lead ICC World XI
The hard-hitting batsman tweeted: "It's a great honour to be leading the ICC World XI side, that too for such a good cause". It is learnt that Morgan fractured his fingers during Middlesex's game against Somerset at Taunton.

Birmingham have held talks with 23-year-old Danish defender Kristian Pedersen, who plays for Bundesliga 2 side Union Berlin.

Zinedine Zidane shocked Real Madrid by resigning on Thursday, less than a week after winning his third-consecutive Champions League. After doing three years, it's the right decision.

Real Madrid reportedly want Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager. "It's one of the teams I loved when I was a kid".

Martins has developed in to one of the most exciting players in Portuguese football since breaking in to the Sporting first team two years ago having joined the clubs youth system when he was a teen.

"I am here now and of course I understand all the rumours from around the world but that's our life".

And in a social media post, Ronaldo was quick to pay tribute to departing Madrid coach Zidane.
