Real Madrid has rejected claims from top man Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham that the club in London was not allowed to stay at their training camp prior to the Champions League final.
Spurs is set to use the training complex in Valdebebas in the run-up to the match against Liverpool in the Spanish city on 1 June.

& # 39; Real Madrid wants to make it clear that it is absolutely incorrect that this request was made. Our club has always shown its absolute availability to meet all requests from UEFA, the Royal Spanish Football Association, Club Atletico de Madrid, Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur. & # 39;
Tottenham trained at their base in North London while Liverpool was away in Marbella.
In the Spanish podcast El Partidazo de Cope, Pochettino had said that the President of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, had rejected a request to let the team sleep in the Real Madrid sports center.

The Madrid declaration continued: "All applications submitted to Real Madrid relate exclusively and exclusively to the use of Real Madrid training camps and its changing rooms. All of them have been granted by our club.
& # 39; Liverpool wants to train in our facilities on Saturday 1 June & # 39; in the morning. Tottenham does that on Thursday 30 May and Friday 31 May.
& # 39; Real Madrid also wants to emphasize that the accommodation of the Champions League finalist teams is allocated by UEFA according to organization and safety criteria. And that our club was never asked to have these teams accommodated in the facilities of Ciudad Real Madrid. & # 39;
