Real Madrid's 'S*** Season' Is Now Over Says Dani Carvajal

Real Madrid's 'S*** Season' Is Now Over Says Dani Carvajal

The stock explanation is that Real Madrid's early exit - the first time they fail to reach the quarterfinals in nine years - is partly due to the summer departures of coach Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo, who decamped to Juventus.

Sections of the Bernabeu jeered the Wales forward when he was substituted after 61 minutes of Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Barcelona.

Madrid were left 12 points behind their league-leading rivals with 12 games to go, their chances of LaLiga success all-but over.

"He works hard, he's got the desire and he wants to return to the usual Bale and help the team for the rest of the season", he added.

Still, at least Ramos will be available for Real Madrid's second group game in next season's Champions League.

Madrid, who were missing inspirational captain Sergio Ramos through suspension and hit the woodwork twice in the first half, came out stronger after the interval but were dealt a fatal blow when Serbia worldwide Tadic crowned his sensational display by hammering into the top corner in the 62nd minute.

It was their joint heaviest-ever home defeat in Europe, having also lost by three goals to CSKA Moscow in the group stage in December.

After a win over Levante on February 24, Madrid could not have imagined a week as bad as this. Neres beat Luka Modric to Tadic's through ball and went past Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois before finding the open net.

Karim Benzema had the best chance to open the scoring for Madrid in the second half as he beat his defender in the area but curled his shot from a tight angle wide of the far post. The young Brazilian appeared to be crying as he made his way back to the bench. In an interview with De Telegraaf, De Jong revealed that the club mentioned about knocking out Real during his contract signing, so this match is sure to be heavily watched in Catalonia. Ramos later retracted his comments, but UEFA, the game's governing body, wasn't impressed and slapped him with an additional one-game suspension.

While a lengthy consultation with the VAR was needed to determine whether the ball had gone out of play in the build-up, the goal eventually stood and Ajax were 3-0 to the good and 4-2 up on aggregate.
