When Real Madrid come calling, you have to listen at least

"We must thank him for his care and passion for Real Madrid over these years".

The FC panel answer your tweets on all things Real Madrid following Zinedine Zidane's departure and share their picks for the World Cup semifinals.

Zidane stepped down from the Madrid manager's position just five days after winning the Champions League.

Zidane's retirement as a Real Madrid player in 2006 also came as a surprise, when the then-33-year-old chose to hang up his boots in the aftermath of that year's World Cup final despite having another year on his club contract.

As a player, Zidane mastered the art of the unexpected - whether good (those incredible goals), or bad (that headbutt, which cost his country a World Cup) - and it seems that he's carried that over into management.

Germany national team manager Joachim Low has denied any interest in filling the new vacancy at Real Madrid.

Real Madrid reportedly want Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager.


Ronaldo has been Madrid's talisman during a highly successful period under Zidane's leadership, although the Portugal star has suggested he is considering his future.

Sarri, who was unfortunate not to win the Serie A title with Napoli last season, was a shoe-in to replace Conte.

"It's a unusual moment to do so, I know, but an important one too", he said.

The former Argentina defender told El Confidencial that you could not just ignore a call from the La Liga giants, however the situation "does not depend on me" and he was happy at Tottenham.

Three other runner-up places grace Klopp's CV, including the English League Cup (2016), the Europa League (2016) and this season's Champions League.

Capello believes a deal could be done this summer, telling Sky Sport Italia: "I think that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to go back to Manchester, to play for United and being coached by his compatriot Mourinho".

"I don't see myself continuing to win this year and I am a victor, I don't like to lose", said Zidane, who was under contract with Real until 2020.
