Before we bid you farewell we have some quotes from Pep Guardiola now. The coach saw his team cruise to a 4-1 win over Malaga earlier in the evening yet Real Madrid's victory over Athletic Bilbao means Los Blancos are now champions of Spain. Here is what he had to say after his team's win and let's just say he took a dig at refereeing decisions this season.

"Two penalties? Now it's not really needed anymore... It's a bit late in the season to start giving us penalties."

Some news from Italy is that Delio Rossi has been sacked as coach of Fiorentina following his altercation with Adam Ljajic. Here is a quote from the club's official website from club president, Andrea Della Valle.

"I sacked the coach because his gesture was serious. Tomorrow morning we'll talk calmly about this. I spoke with Rossi, I'm sorry for him because he's a good person and he doesn't deserve it, but tonight he's committed a serious act."
