Santiago Solari future at Real Madrid is uncertain after a catastrophic series of the result in the past week. Madrid were thrashed 4-1 at home lose to the tie 5-3 on aggregate and fail to reach the competition’s quarter-finals for the first time since 2010.
This means they have also be knocked out of the Copa del Rey, La Liga’s title race and now Europe in the space of seven days.
The coach was handed contract which will last till 2021 which he took over from Julen Lopetegui in November but the humiliating defeat means he may not last the season, let alone beyond the summer.
“I did not come to the club in such a difficult moment to give up,” clearly we have given it our all we have not managed to go through.”
Defender Dani Carvajal said “I’ve never felt sick as this, I don’t know how to explain it, in one week everything has gone, and all of it after matches at home. Tonight we can’t look for excuses, they were better and they deserved to go through.”
Real Madrid had won the Champions League for the last three years in a row but Ajax were unfortunate to lose the opening leg in Amsterdam 2-1 and deserving winners at the Santiago Bernabeu.
