Only at Real Madrid…
The morning a 7-1 thrashing of Celta Vigo, the headlines in Spanish paper El Confidencial on Saturday’s activities at the Santiago Bernabeu are amazingly negative towards Los Blancos.
The fact that Real are unlikely to win the league after last weekend’s defeat to Atletico is still stinging. Scoring seven goals has done nothing to change that.
El Confidencial are today accusing Real president Florentino Perez of clamping down on free speech at home games.
In the defeat against Atleti, Real fans called for Perez to resign. On Saturday their were renewed calls for Perez to go, this time in a giant banner form.
The banner, which read ‘Listen to the stadium and step down, Florentino’, however, was only shown momentarily before it was taken down. El Confidencial claim security, under orders from Florentino Perez, demanded the fans lower their banner.

In other negative Real Madrid news, El Confidencial also claim that despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s four goal haul against Celta, his goal celebration in which he cupped his ear as a reaction to previous jeering from the crowd, showed how the Portuguese star is still intent on leaving the club.
