Both Madrid sports newspapers put their focus in Real Madrid basketball team victory over Barcelona in the fifth leg of the Spanish ACB league final which gave Los Blancos their 31st national title.
“Kings of the league”, says Marca in a pun of words with Reyes -‘kings’ in Spanish-, who was given the MVP of the finals award. “Giants and champions”, titles As. Real won 79-71 in a vibrant match.
Both newspapers also bring to their front pages the latest rumours about Carlo Ancelotti’s signing for Real Madrid. “Russia won’t let Fabio Capello go to Paris Saint Germain and Ancelotti’s transfer is stuck again”, claims As.
Marca states that the Italian manager “has given his blessing” to youngsters Jese Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata to be part of the squad next season.
The Madrid daily also highlights Tottenham’s manager Andre Villas-Boas words about Gareth Bale: “He will not leave Tottenham”, the Portuguese said.
