Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is not happy with Coach Zinedine Zidane’s summer decision coupled with over the recent setback during the La Liga match against Real Betis at the Bernabeu.
Betis stunned Real Madrid with a 1-0 on Wednesday, the La Liga Champions is yet to record any home victory in La Liga this season and leaves the Champions seven points behind the leaders and marks the worst run of home form over 20 years.
Diario Gol says Perez was fuming at the final whistle, with the focus of his anger being Zidane.
The president now feels shortchanged by the coach after accepting his demands over the summer market, including the sales of Mariano Diaz, Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez.
Zidane’s insistence that his squad didn’t need high-profile additions is also backfiring, with injury and suspension plaguing Real in the early rounds of the season.
Perez squarely lays the blame for their poor start at Zidane’s door and his mishandling of transfer policy. And he said as much to fellow directors at the end of last night’s shock defeat.
Real Madrid will look to put things in order when they visit Deportivo Alaves on Saturday before the Champions League trip to Germany to face Borussia Dortmund.
