Patrice Evra: If Cristiano Ronaldo invites you over for lunch, just say no

Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has advised against accepting post-training lunch invitations from his ex-teammate Cristiano Ronaldo -- as the food will be too healthy and you will end up having to exercise even more.

Evra and Ronaldo were teammates at Old Trafford between 2005 and 2009, as Alex Ferguson's side won trophies including the 2008 Champions League and 2007, 2008 and 2009 Premier League titles.

Is Julen Lopetegui the man Real Madrid thought they were getting?

As the manager of Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane had a terrific knack for making sure he was never the main event. Even when he was the decisive character, it was typically others who made headlines while he made history. He managed to disappear like a gust of wind once he made his mind up that his time at Real Madrid was finished. And the club have been on a mission to replace their former manager with someone as close to the Frenchman in terms of temperament as possible.

It was all very regrettable...

MADRID -- Julen Lopetegui's presentation as Real Madrid coach at the Bernabeu on Thursday evening was just the latest dramatic and startling event in one of the most dramatic and startling weeks in Spanish football history.

Both the new Madrid coach and club president Florentino Perez offered a strong defence of their actions this week -- blaming federation president Luis Rubiales for having completely overreacted to Lopetegui having agreed to take this new job once this summer's World Cup was over.

Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale under Lopetegui at Madrid: Ex-Spain boss has big calls to make

The FC crew react to Real Madrid's appointment of Julen Lopetegui as manager, questioning the timing as he prepares to lead Spain at the World Cup.

Julen Lopetegui may have emerged out of nowhere to be named the new manager of Real Madrid, but it is an appointment that makes a great deal of sense from the Bernabeu's point of view.

Real's search for a successor to Zinedine Zidane had taken on an increasingly desperate air before the announcement on Tuesday. Andre Villas-Boas, last seen at the Dakar Rally, was the most recent to be linked.

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the tricky situation Julen Lopetegui finds himself in as he coaches Spain before taking over at Real Madrid.

Spain's papers on Wednesday morning were still recovering from the shock of the previous evening's announcement that national coach Julen Lopetegui had agreed to take over at Real Madrid, just days ahead of La Roja's first game at this summer's World Cup.

Some of the Spanish capital's media outlets found it tricky to navigate a path between divided loyalties, while others less close to the Bernabeu hierarchy were quick to accuse them of putting club priorities ahead of the national team's chances...
