Cristiano Ronaldo Leaves Touching Message To Zinedine Zidane

Cristiano Ronaldo Leaves Touching Message To Zinedine Zidane

Zinedine Zidane's shock departure from Real Madrid has reportedly left Cristiano Ronaldo "disgusted", according to reports in Spain.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino responded Friday to speculation that he is Real Madrid's favoured candidate to succeed Zinedine Zidane as coach by saying: 'What will be, will be'.

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".

Asked whether he is ready to make the move to the Spanish capital, Pochettino replied: "I am ready now to take my friends for lunch".

Zidane is now weighing up his options following his surprise decision to leave Real Madrid after hoisting a third straight Champions League trophy. I'm not very gifted to enjoy life and lie on the beach.

Despite Perez insisting he did not want Zidane to leave, Sportsmail understand the two had contradicting opinions over plans for the club's future, which had an impact on the Frenchman walking out.

Pochettino penned a new deal with Tottenham that will take him through to 2023 recently, but rumours regarding an impending exit have been sparked within days of that agreement being reached. During his five-year playing career at Madrid between 2001 and 2006, Zidane won the Champions League in 2002 and La Liga in 2003.

"It is exciting now because I can be tested again", he told reporters, as reported by the Express. I envy friends of mine who can do that.

When Real Madrid call, you have to listen. For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived. Of course, we have a lot of dreams. But when he takes a decision, the only thing we can do is respect it. "You think that. But you are not me". "The first time I thought it was inside the five year and I thought I can not do that, that would betray my club".

Zidane, a former Madrid star and France global, was one of the greatest players of his generation, winning trophies that included the 1998 World Cup, Euro 2000 and the 2002 Champions League, as well as the 1998 Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year prize in 1998, 2000 and 2003.
