Real Madrid v Ajax - UEFA Champions League Round of 16: Second Leg

What's the story?

Real Madrid fans gathered outside the Santiago Bernabeu and called for the resignation of Florentino Perez after Ajax knocked Real Madrid out of the Champions League with a 4-1 win.

In case you didn't know...

Real Madrid endured their 4th consecutive home defeat this season for the first time in the 21st century as Ajax defeated the Champions of Europe. Their four defeats include a defeat against Girona, two losses against Barcelona and a defeat against Ajax- which saw them crashing out of all tournaments in the span of a week.

While Barcelona knocked them out of the Copa Del Rey semifinals, the defeats against Girona and Barcelona in LaLiga also mean that they are now 12 points behind league leaders Barcelona.

Despite sacking former coach Julen Lopetegui, Santiago Solari has failed to change things as Real Madrid are enduring an abysmal season considering their standards.

Unless Barcelona and Atletico Madrid miraculously drop points in the last few months, Los Blancos will go trophy-less this season.

The heart of the matter

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has come under lot of criticism due to his transfer policies, mainly which saw the exit of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane before the start of the season.

According to AS, fans gathered around the Bernabeu and expressed their frustration and anger by calling for Florentino Perez's resignation. They were extremely vocal and clear about their message as they chanted "Florentino, dimisión!" ("Florentino, resign!") 

What's next?

Real Madrid have little to play for but they will be aware of the fact that they can be out of a Champions League spot if they don't step up.

They will face Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo and Huesca in LaLiga in the coming weeks.
