Real Madrid

 By Rob Train

Real Madrid suffer La Liga and Champions League woe

The ESPN FC crew respond to the reports suggesting Carlo Ancelotti will be replaced by Rafael Benitez at Real Madrid next season.

With La Liga over, here's a look back at Real Madrid's campaign as thoughts turn toward the summer and next season.

Your season in a sentence and final grade: B

To quote Sven-Goran Eriksson during his England reign: "First half good, second half not so good."

Highlight

The Club World Cup is little more than a trinket to Real, so I'll say the 3-1 victory over Barcelona at the Bernabeu. Real were just getting into their stride and had battered Levante 5-0 a week earlier, with Carlo Ancelotti successfully...

Ronaldo's hat trick highlights Real Madrid's sensational season finale

The ESPN FC panel discuss if Rafael Benitez can be a better manager than Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid next season.

Real Madrid's last match of the season was a curious affair. Before kickoff, there were cheers for manager Carlo Ancelotti and the usual mix of whistles and applause for goalkeeper Iker Casillas from a sparse crowd in the Santiago Bernabéu. Both the home side and Getafe had nothing tangible to play for, and the result was one of the most entertaining matches of the season.

A vastly changed Real Madrid ran out eventual 7-3 winners, but the game was a sideshow played out against a melancholy backdrop...

Real Madrid pass on Javier Hernandez; Otamendi forcing through United move

It appears Javier Hernandez is heading back to Manchester United. But will he be there next season?

As the majority of the world's leagues ready for the season's end, the rumours continue to pick up steam. Things are starting to get real, transfer fans.

Real make Chicharito decision

Just days after Manchester United confirmed the inevitable -- that Radamel Falcao would not be signed to a permanent deal -- another one of this summer's more predictable non-transfers looks set to happen.

The Express reported today that Real Madrid have decided not to take up their option to buy Javier Hernandez,...

Replacing Ancelotti could be biggest decision of Perez's Madrid presidency

The ESPN FC panel discuss Carlo Ancelotti getting sacked from his duties at Real Madrid, and believe it was expected after the club won nothing this season.

Exactly a year ago, Carlo Ancelotti was singing along joyously to the Real Madrid hymn inside a packed, jubilant and colourful Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. The Italian had ended Real Madrid's search for La Decima, their 10th European Cup, and after jetting back from being thrown aloft by his winning squad on Benfica's Estadio da Luz pitch, he was centre stage, quite literally, inside a stadium that more resembled a Disney fireworks extravaganza than a football stadium.

It was the moment Madrid had...

Does Florentino Perez have too much power as Real Madrid president?

The ESPN FC panel discuss Carlo Ancelotti getting sacked from his duties at Real Madrid, and believe it was expected after the club won nothing this season.

When managers are sacked, especially at top clubs, we often turn it into a moral issue. We feel sorry for them (or not) and ask ourselves whether they "deserved" to get the boot or "did enough" to keep the job. We use our own metrics to measure this -- results, image, style of play -- and we try to be rational by allowing for mitigating factors: things like injuries, time (and lack thereof), resources, degree of control and oversight or personal relationships.

Plenty are doing just that in reflecting...

Ancelotti exit proves Florentino Perez is Real's best asset and worst enemy

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Mark Donaldson react to the news that Real Madrid has fired Carlo Ancelotti and the rumours that Rafael Benitez will be the next manager.

His players have spoken out: They want him to stay. Those fans polled by the Madrid media want him to stay, and by an overwhelming majority. The Bernabeu faithful, very rarely faithful when it comes right down to it, have used their voices in an informal plebiscite; they'd have him back next season. He, himself, wants to stay.

So why is Carlo Ancelotti no longer the Real Madrid manager?

It's a serious question. The answer is that there are no direct football criteria with which to construct...
