A statement read: “Real Madrid CF is surprised by the comments made by the coach of Tottenham Hotspur, Mauricio Pochettino, about a supposed request made to our club so that his team could stay in the residence of the Real Madrid City on the occasion of the final of the Champions League.

"All requests have referred only to the use of the training pitches and changing rooms. And all of them have been granted by our club."
