Highlights of Real Madrid’s disastrous season

The Champions League is a competition that cannot be expected to win or even reach the final every year. Real Madrid’s failure this season, however, lies not in staying one step away from relegation in Istanbul on June 10, but in recognizing that the ‘merengue miracle’ has no end date, or at least a minimal competitive level, An entire season lies in the making. They need to be done.

The reality is that as the Whites played against Manchester City this Wednesday, they also played against England themselves last season, playing for more than 180 minutes against Chelsea and, above all, against Paris Saint-Germain, where it had reached him. With 20 minutes to finish the French. But for this season it was not the same Benzema, not the same Alaba, not Casemiro and not Mendy, who has spent almost the whole of 2023 in hospital.

Repeating the epic can’t be a road map

Along with these last points, those indicated are proper names, of course, but also those above them and they should make the final decision on how the general plan of the squad will be executed, as in the case of Brazil. . However, they focused on Kylian Mbappe for months at the Santiago Bernabéu and when the summer came they realized they did not have the maneuverability to sign him, not least because of a lack of money.

Florentino Pérez, along with all his officials from the sporting side, and of course Carlo Ancelotti, appear to be most responsible for Meringue’s erratic season, which had a low peak against City, but which was not the only disaster of course. . Already in the Spanish Super Cup he got a ‘bath’ against FC Barcelona, ​​as well as adding to the countless losses in the league since the restoration of the championship.

There was no thought capable of reversing Embappé’s ‘betrayal’

Mbappe’s “no” left Madrid with Benzema as the only centre-back for this season and although he made a timid attempt to find another scorer like Gabriel Jesus, the reality is that he firmly believed that the current The Ballon d’Or winner can repeat one just like the previous one. It was clear that physical exertion at his age was going to take its toll on him, and it did, but he didn’t see it that way in the Merengue offices.

The immediate response to the Frenchman’s renewal with PSG was to sign a midfielder for a certain £80 million, who saw a disaster from the bench against City and who alternated between substitutions and casualties in the second half of the season due to injury. . He was unable to regain his place in the starting line-up, and Ancelotti naively believed that Kroos would be able to stop Gundogan, De Bruyne and any other rivals who came forward.

Madrid just hasn’t risen to the height

The meringues bid goodbye to this season with a Copa del Rey and an insignificant Club World Cup, but above all leave the impression that they are far from a competitive enough team to fight for everything. La Liga against Barca was the best example of the lack of wardrobe Ancelotti, who was one of those who assured that with a small team they will not have any problems this season.

Carvajal has no competition, Mendy is practically the same, Kroos and Modric do not get the necessary support to be able to play high-intensity matches together and Benzema, of course, is no longer Madrid’s undisputed number 9. Can Come summer and Bellingham looks to be the big bet on Florentino, who doesn’t understand that he will have to sign two full-backs, a center forward and have more decisive players than Asensio, Ceballos or Lucas Vazquez on the bench.
