Earlier today, Real Madrid announced the sacking of manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Ancelotti had won 4 trophies in his first 2 seasons with Los Merengues, but a trophy-less last season ensured president Florentino Perez handed him the axe.
A number of Real Madrid players, including James Rodriguez and star Cristiano Ronaldo had shown support for Ancelotti, but that didn’t seem to change Perez’s decision.
Many fans were also displeased, and took to social media to vent their frustration at Perez.
I dont get perez at all! Selling the most effective players last season and the most winning rate in the history of realmadrid. Nonsense!!
