The newspaper reports Real Madrid has made Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp its number one target to replace Zidane but the Reds are expected to resist any move for the German.

"We know what we have achieved and how good we have been".

It's my decision. For many people, this will not make sense, but it does for me. I had an injury five, six weeks in but fit ever since.

Former Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas also pointed out that whoever takes over now - with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino among the potential candidates - had a tough act to follow.

Zidane announced his departure Thursday, less than a week after guiding Madrid to a third successive Champions League crown.

Zidane said his association with Madrid may not be at an end.

Blanc was renowned as one of the world's best centre-backs during his illustrious playing career that saw him win the World Cup and European Championship with France, as well as representing elite clubs like Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United at club level.

LeBron James Was The Difference, As Usual
Things have been going just as well on TNT, where the cabler will host Game 7 of the Western Conference finals on Memorial Day. That's despite his Cavs team undergoing several roster changes throughout the season and incurring injuries along the way.

But whether the 48-year-old Italian is an adequate replacement for the taciturn Zidane, and the right choice for such a demanding club, is up for debate.

Pochettino, who joined Spurs in 2014, said: "I am happy at Tottenham because they let me work and we are growing together". I'm not looking for another team.

"I spoke to Florentino yesterday [Wednesday] to tell him my thoughts, my feelings. Although if you need a rest, we understand that".

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

The Frenchman, formerly coach of Real Madrid Castilla, was appointed as head coach of Real's first team in January 2016 after the dismissal of Rafa Benítez, and guided the club to the Champions League title by beating Atlético Madrid on penalties in the final.

Separately, disappointed with Zinedine Zidane's abrupt decision to leave Real Madrid, which he has managed for several years, the 33-year-old took to Instagram to post his heartfelt goodbye: "All I feel is pride at having been your player".
