Benitez & Perez: Wish Real Madrid fans a Happy Christmas

Real Madrid have called a press conference for Monday evening with reports claiming Rafael Benitez will receive a vote of confidence.

The Spanish giants were dismantled 4-0 by Barcelona at the Bernabeu on Saturday, when the Real fans made their feelings clear with the performances of the side under the former Liverpool and Valencia manager.

President Florentino Perez has called a media conference for 6:30pm GMT to be held following a board meeting.

Reports prior to the Clasico had suggested that Benitez could be axed if Real were beaten at home by Barca, who went on to comfortably outclass their hosts.

But Spanish football journalists Guillem Balague and Graham Hunter both claim that Perez will offer Benitez a public vote of confidence.

Zinedine Zidane has been linked with the head coach’s role, but the Real legend said that he is happy as coach of the club’s B team.

“I am the manager of Castilla, Benitez is the manager of the first team, and things are fine like that,” Zidane said. “I am with Castilla and if I stay at the club it is the coach Castilla.

“I have a long way to go, and, anyway, a manager is never really fully formed. Last year, at the end of the season, I had the feeling that I still lacked something to take over the first team.

“What I am doing, as I did when I was a player, I am doing bit by bit. I am not in a hurry for anything.”

    Rafa’s on his way perhaps not now but definitely at the end of the season without he pulls of a CL which is not impossible.

    Can’t understand why Real let Carlo go, couldn’t understand why Chelsea did either!



    another top manager available though, possible replacement for Man U (if they falter or Chelsea if Jose does not turn it around?

    stevo, ha ha there’s more chance of Chelsea winning the League Cup this season and they’ve already been eliminated than there is of Rafa coming back to Chelsea.



    always found it very difficult to understand how they could get rid of Ancelotti and replace him with Benitez or anyone else for that matter, must be cause his Spanish



    999 and there’s more chance of him going to Chelsea than Utd so work out those odds! Benitez has as much chance as I do of getting the Utd job and that is a fact!

    @steveosnakeeye. We do not need him at our club. Not in a million years. I do not know why it is not working for him at Real. May be to many egos to handle. And Benitez is in the same mould of Mourihno and to a lesser extent LVG. We do not want to see this kind of football again. I beleive next season, there might be big big changes in managerial level in the premiership. You might see the like of Ancelotti and Guardiola soon and trust me that would be a strong statement.



    Wow, it’s November and only his 2nd loss of the season. The way Madrid treat their managers is something else.

    7, you’re right there mate, more chance of winning multiple milluons on the Euro Lottery and the Saturday Lottery on consecutive nights than Rafa ever pitching up at United, but I expect stevo knows that too and he was just having a bit of a chuckle with us all.
