Real Madrid manager in danger of getting sacked

Real Madrid lost the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 clash against PSG 1-0 last Tuesday, and as expected, reports have instantly come up claiming that manager Carlo Ancelotti is in danger of getting sacked.

Spanish publications, including Diario Sport, have been reporting that club president Florentino Perez is already planning to fire the Italian by the end of the season. Perez is reportedly unhappy after travelling with the club to the Parc des Princes, only to see PSG run circles around his team. To add insult to injury, transfer target Kylian Mbappe was the one who scored the winning goal for the opponents.

Ancelotti admitted that he is aware that the president is hurting after the disaster in France. He said as much during his recent press conference ahead of Los Blancos’ La Liga match against Alaves.

“I have spoken with the president, with everyone in the club, and they are hurt just like we are,” he said.
