The Real Madrid crisis, which has lost six games only in the first half of the Spanish league, has been a full plate for the press… In Catalonia. The newspapers of the land of Barcelona – biggest rival of “Los Blancos” away from Madrid – appear to be not measuring efforts to boost the atypical season that lives the Merengue club. After the defeat to Real Sociedad, things got a little worse for the “Madridistas”.
The “Sport”, for example, brings in the headline of this Tuesday’s edition: “The worst Madrid of the 21st century”. The Catalan daily writes about the end of the “Solari effect” and says that the clime in the locker room is not the best right now.
The “Mundo Deportivo” was not far behind and stamped the bad merengue stage on its cover. “White Crisis” is the headline, and the Catalan newspaper goes on to say that the continuity of coach Solari in charge of the team is uncertain. Which I believe it may be true because Madrid won’t handle many losses and continue with the same coach.
The newspapers in Madrid, on the other hand, obviously do not see the Real Madrid crisis as a good topic to write about and tries to focus on other issues. The cover of the “Marca”, for example, brings the new hiring of the club, the Spaniard Brahim Diaz. The headline they bring is “Betting for the future at the Bernabeu”. It is clear that they are trying to make the fans feel better with a better future.
They made only a small mention of the bad moment of the team in the passage in which says that Ramos and Solari met with the cast and sent “a message of encouragement.”.
The other newspaper, “As”, brings the image of Vinicius Junior on the cover and talks about the use of the video referee in the King’s Cup this week – Real pick up Leganés on Wednesday. The technology is not being seen with good eyes in Spain, especially in Madrid.
