Real Madrid’s humiliating 4-0 defeat in El Clasico left fans across the world fuming. The catastrophe was fulled by a combination of factors ranging from the manager to the players. Yet, the popular opinion is that Ancelotti was the primary party at fault for the loss.

The Italian manager’s tactics on the night were absurd. He opted to play Luka Modric as the most advanced central player on the night instead of choosing Luka Jovic or Mariano. Moreover, his decision of starting Nacho over David Abala at left-back to take on Ousmane Dembele did not go down well either.

After the defeat at the Bernabeu, several fans have come out and asked for the resignation of Carlo Ancelotti. According to reports from Fichajes, the chosen candidate by the fans is said to be Xabi Alonso.

The club legend began his managerial career at the Real Madrid U14 setup in 2018. Alonso was then appointed the manager of Segunda B team Real Sociedad B in 2019 and secured promotion to the second division in 2021.

His contract at the Basque side ends on June 30th, and Real Madrid could well be the next team he manages. With over four years of experience under his belt, one would assume he is ready for the big step.

At Los Blancos‘ offices, the move is seen as one similar to Barcelona’s decision to appoint Xavi Hernandez. The arrival of a club legend as the manager lifted the spirit and performance of the Blaugrana team this season. Xabi Alonso could be the ‘Xavi’ Real Madrid need to oversee their long-term rebuild.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
