Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez has words with Carlo Ancelotti

Florentino Pérez was furious after Real Madrid’s Spanish Super Cup defeat to Barcelona and Carlo Ancelotti and fitness coach Antonio Pintus were on the receiving end of his disappointment during the flight back to Madrid, which created a tense atmosphere around the camp.

According to Relevo, the talk between Pérez and the club’s manager made everyone tense on the return trip from Saudi Arabia and left a strange mood in the air at Valdebebas in the following days.

Madrid’s hierarchy remembered the ghosts of 2015, when the team slumped from January onwards. As a result, Pérez called for an immediate reaction from Los Blancos, current La Liga and Champions League champions.

On the one hand, he needed to let off steam and make it clear that there are no titles too small for Madrid. On the other hand, he wanted to restore pressure on the team as soon as possible. And Madrid have bounced back, with a victory away at Villarreal in the Copa del Rey, a league win at San Mamés and a comeback against Atlético in the derby at the Bernabéu on Thursday.
