Jese suffers cruciate ligament damage

Real Madrid youngster Jese could be sidelined until next season after it was confirmed he had suffered a serious knee injury in Tuesday's Champions League win against Schalke.

The highly-rated forward was carried off on a stretcher just minutes into the match at the Bernabeu and, after undergoing tests at hospital, Madrid announced the 21-year-old had torn his anterior cruciate ligament.

After the exploration and scans taken at the Hospital Sanitas La Moraleja, our player Jese Rodriguez has been diagnosed with complete tear of the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes: no contact from Real Madrid over Asmir Begovic

Stoke boss Mark Hughes is not surprised Potters goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is being linked with Real Madrid, but has stressed there has been no contact between the clubs and that he is not welcoming interest in him.

I'm not sure where the story originates from, but certainly there has been no contact between the clubs.

But it wouldn't surprise me if there was a modicum of truth in it - that top teams are looking at Asmir - because he is an outstanding goalkeeper.

We are certainly not encouraging it. Asmir is a huge part of what we are trying to do here.

Bale not taking title for granted

Gareth Bale insists treble-chasing Real Madrid are not getting carried away despite taking a firm grip on the Primera Division title race over the weekend.

With Barcelona surprisingly losing to lowly Real Valladolid on Saturday, Real had a chance to put a four-point buffer between themselves and the reigning champions - as well as moving three points clear of Atletico Madrid - with a victory over Levante on Sunday.

This was a very important result due to the result in Valladolid.

We were really motivated to get the three points and we're very happy with this win.

We're in a good position in the league, but there are still a lot of difficult games left.

We must maintain this good run and the good form we're in.
