Leaving Tottenham for Real Madrid would be a risk for Mauricio Pochettino

Zindine Zidane's unexpected departure from Real Madrid has prompted Chelsea to explore the Frenchman as a possible manager.

Pochettino said taking on the Real Madrid job would not require bravery. "It would have been hard for me to win again next year". I do not forget that.

"I love this club and the president who gave me the chance to play for this club and manage the club of my dreams".

Sarri, who was unfortunate not to win the Serie A title with Napoli last season, was a shoe-in to replace Conte. "The first time I thought it was inside the five year and I thought I can not do that, that would betray my club". Our project is so exciting. During his five-year playing career at Madrid between 2001 and 2006, Zidane won the Champions League in 2002 and La Liga in 2003. "After that we'll see what happens".

" When he says he's taken a decision though, we have to accept it".

"There are hard moments when you can wonder whether you are the right person still", he said.

"He needed something new, so I do not understand it very well, but maybe in football you need to find new motivations". "But everything changes and that's why I've taken the decision to leave".

"This is a squad which has shown its worth in these recent years", he said. "But we are talking about the best players in the world". Madrid sports daily AS said after the final that Zidane was "the architect of this glorious and possibly unrepeatable era".

Weinman's lawyer, Stephen Dicht, said after viewing the body cam videos, "I don't think it puts the police in a good light". At this point Weiman says she "tripped and fell and the cop tackled me to the ground and smashed my head into the sand".

"I think, like I explained before, the most important thing is to enjoy day by day".

It would be a huge shock now though, with it being 14 years since he last lifted a league title, but it would mean the 68-year-old will have more than landed on his feet after effectively being forced out of the door at the Emirates. But it is the moment to [leave] now. "I'll have to sit down with my agent and talk about it". I'm not looking for another team. I tried to convince him but I know how it is. "I respect greatly what he has done and his decision". "You think that. But you are not me".

When you've got a book to sell, it's a given you need to drum up headlines and create a buzz of publicity.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is a notoriously tough negotiator, but apparently has good relations with Real president Florentino Perez.

After leaving Madrid on Thursday, Zidane stated: "I'm not going to coach another team right now".

While the Tottenham manager boasts an immaculate reputation in the game and has always been viewed as a Real Madrid boss in waiting by the club's president Florentino Perez, so many aspects of this potential marriage suggest it would be a prelude for a quickie divorce.

He has been in charge of Germany since 2006 and led them to World Cup glory four years ago.
