The Madrid chief spoke about the Italian and was not wholly convincing

Carlo Ancelotti could be in danger at Real Madrid. The director of institutional relations, Emilio Butragueño, was very lukewarm towards the Italian coach at the end of the match against Manchester City in declarations to Movistar Liga de Campeones.

His only statement on the coach was to recall that "Ancelotti has a contract with us and is a great coach who has won everything with us. It's a bad night, we're very sad and we have to recognise City's superiority".

The journalist Mónica Marchante then asked him directly: "Are you going to continue with Ancelotti?" And at this point he found no answer. Butragueño continued talking about the match, avoiding giving an answer. An evasive answer that smelled very bad and that calls the Madrid coach's future into question.

The humiliation suffered did not please Florentino Pérez, who was in the box, and now an uncertain scenario is opening up in Los Blancos' dugout. 14 points behind Barça in La Liga, without the Champions League, with another setback in the Spanish Super Cup against Xavi Hernández's team, it doesn't look good. The Copa del Rey won against Osasuna, the Club World Cup or the European Super Cup seem like minor titles that may not save Carletto's head.

The Italian has a proposal from the Brazilian national team, which is still waiting for him after the departure of Tite, and could be his destination from next season onwards.
