Real Madrid claims Super Cup with 2-1 win over Manchester United

Despite United suffering a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday night, the youngster was ecstatic with his surprise gift from Mourinho.

Frustrated that he couldn't be a part of the picture, he used explicit language towards UEFA officials and received a two-match ban.

"Only great players obtain large crowds", he continued.

Perez's comments regarding Ronaldo could be viewed as a sly dig at Barca, with Real having shown that they are capable of fending off interest in afar regardless of how much noise is made.

When the predictable subject of Gareth Bale's future came up, Mourinho offered up a bit of pantomime, and added what the Real Madrid manager would have called "gasoline" to the situation.

Furthermore, the report states that experts say it is "highly unlikely" the former Manchester United star would be cleared of the charges and continuing down his current path could potentially see him end up in prison.

Coming very shortly after a horrendous terrorist attack wreaked havoc at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, United wanted to dedicate the win to those affected by the tragedy and to the spirit of their resilient city.

"There were big celebrations in the dressing room, we don't get exhausted of winning", said the Frenchman after his side became the first team to retain the trophy since AC Milan in 1990.

Ramos went on to play down the suggestion that Mourinho decisively moulded his career as he transitioned from right-back to centre-half.

"Each coach tries to make the most doing it their way".

Spain's prosecution laws mean that first-time offenders do not have to serve jail time should they be sentenced to less than two years in prison.

"But the top quality is obviously in the Champions League". There were small and big differences. That is all I can say.

"I don't think that changed my career at all", he said. I left feeling quite at ease and feeling that I had nothing left to give.

"Quite frankly, I left with that peace of mind, I left to start a new life and that's it".
