Ancelotti MUST win Champions League to keep Real Madrid job, claims Spanish football expert

first_imgtalkSPORT’s Spanish football expert Graham Hunter claims Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti MUST win the Champions League this season if he wants to keep his job.The Italian has been linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer, should the club decide to dispense with Manuel Pellegrini’s services.Real Madrid will have to overturn a 2-1 deficit in their semi-final against Juventus, and Hunter believes the match at the Bernabeu will be critical.“The tradition at Real Madrid is that, if you win the Champions League, you get sacked. Just look at Vincente del Bosque and Jupp Heynckes.“I’m a Carlo Ancelotti defender but he hasn’t helped himself, he should have made better decisions.“Asier Illarramendi, Javier Hernandez and Jese should have played more regularly. Keylor Navas should have tested Iker Casillas more regularly as well. Ancelotti’s lack of rotation will count against him.“If they don’t win against Juventus, and subsequently win the final, it’s a little hard to understand how Ancelotti will survive.“That’s the way Florentino Perez is. If they win against Juventus, there is going to be a El Clasico final.“If you win a Clasico final, it’s unprecedented, and maybe Ancelotti stays.”last_img
