Zidane is expected to claim the title ahead of Chelsea's Antonio Conte and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who he trumped in the Champions League decider in June. "Benzema is a cracking (player), just like the rest of them", Marcelo told Movistar after the game.

"The goals will come back little by little".

"It's a great compliment and one I will take as a positive, take in my stride and try to use as confidence".

REAL MADRID are eyeing Mauricio Pochettino as a possible successor to Zinedine Zidane. Granted, Tottenham are far from a one-man outfit, but Kane offers the x-factor that's so key in clinching those types of cups.

Bale appears to no longer be part of the clubs plans due to his injury problems and it currently appears that they will be willing to offload the Welsh international during the summer.

"We will all give everything, from the bench or from the start".

"When Cristiano does not score I get asked always the same thing", he said.

But according to Sky Sports, Tottenham have no knowledge of such negotiations: "Tottenham's stance over Kane remains that their star striker is not for sale at any price".

'The training centre is amazing, the new stadium is coming, the manager is fantastic and we've got a young team.

With Gareth Bale's enforced absence from the squad, Zidane instead turns to Asensio - a second-half sub in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur here last time out - to link up with attacking midfielder Isco and leading marksman Ronaldo in attack. "We have Cristiano, the best number seven and the best player in the world".

While the 'BBC' have been supported off the pitch, on it they have also been carried by their team mates at times, with Isco and Asensio dragging Madrid up to third on Sunday, back within five points of La Liga leaders Barca.

"I always feel there is stuff I can improve on, I think I will never stop trying to do that", Kane said.

"I like players who know how to associate with their teammates", continued Zidane.
