4 changes Real Madrid need to make to get out of the mess they are in
As far as achievements and history are concerned, there are very few clubs in the world that can rival Real Madrid. They have always set a very high standard but in this season their performances in both domestic and European competitions have been disastrous. In the Champions League, they were defeated by CSKA Moscow on both legs of their encounter and were recently humiliated by Real Sociedad in front of the Bernabeu faithful.
Julen Lopetegui was sacked and was replaced by Solari after the El Clasico humiliation but they are still struggling to get back to their usual best. Several factors have been associated with this poor showing by Los Blancos and experts have proposed a plethora of options to improve the overall team performance of the Los Blancos.
In this article, we will take a look at the few necessary changes required to get the Real Madrid team back on track.
1. Replacing Florentino Perez
Almost a decade has passed since Perez took over as the club’s president and on paper, the results have been impressive. But, by looking deeply into the amount of money he has spent and managers sacked, it is clear that Perez has made a lot of questionable decisions. It is fair to say that Barcelona has convincingly dominated Real Madrid in the last decade at the domestic level and the main reason for this decline is Perez’s reluctance to find a long term solution for the club’s problems.
His tendency to make transfer decisions on his own without consultation and the influence he has on the team selection process has not helped the Los Blancos in any way. He has failed to find a proper replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo and his decision to appoint Lopetegui as the manager has proved to be disastrous for the club’s fortunes this season. Real Madrid is in dire need of a fresh face to run the club and unless Madrid script an impressive turnaround, Perez will find it difficult to retain his position.
