Real Madrid disintegrate in humiliating 4-1 loss to Ajax Amsterdam

Four-midable Ajax send holders Real Madrid tumbling

The three defeats have put Santiago Solari's future as coach in doubt. Obviously it's a reason to be proud, but nothing more than that. "Ask players if they would take three Champions League titles and then be eliminated (in the early rounds) the next year". Now it's time to move on.

He has been rumored to be the top candidate for the Madrid job ever since he was sacked by Manchester United past year.

Real Madrid were knocked out of the Champions League this week when they lost to Ajax in the Round of 16.

Now, after consecutive losses to Barcelona and the defeat against Ajax, the team has only the Spanish league to play for. After dropping 12 points behind Barcelona in the league table, the lone competition remaining for Madrid to hang its hat on was the Champions League.

According to Miguel Delaney in the Independent, senior figures at the Bernabeu are keen to appoint a boss who brings back "excitement and happiness" and does not hold any bad relationships with the club's current playing staff.

"It is not to underestimate the opponent nor to think that the series is over, but in football you have to make tough decisions", added Ramos.

The report also indicates that Perez spoke with Solari after the Ajax defeat to demand an explanation for the performance.

He has not taken up another managerial role since leaving Real, although he has been heavily linked with the jobs at Manchester United and Chelsea.

Zinedine Zidane is reportedly their preferred target, but the Frenchman - who departed Real immediately after guiding them to their third successive Champions League win in May 2018 - is not interested in making a swift return.
