“We were unrecognisable” – Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti takes the blame for El Clasico defeat against Barcelona

Following Real Madrid’s embarrassing defeat against Barcelona, manager Carlo Ancelotti took the blame for his side’s performance and the highly disappointing result.

Following Real Madrid’s embarrassing 4-0 defeat against Barcelona in last night’s El Clasico at the Bernabeu, manager Carlo Ancelotti took the blame for his side’s performance and the highly disappointing result.

Ancelotti’s Real Madrid led Barcelona by 15 points heading into the tie, and a triumph would have essentially reserved their bid to win the La Liga title this season. However, it was the visitors who ran away with all 3 points after they ruthlessly dismantled the hosts and reduced the deficit to 12 points.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang was great for Barca once again, scoring two goals and helping another. Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres also made their way onto the scoresheet as Barca completed a remarkable rout of their arch rivals.

Ancelotti spoke in a post-match interview and said:

“It is tough because it is a Clasico, for the fans when we play against Barca… it is a blow, we have lost a battle, we still have an advantage and we have to stay calm and get back our injured players.

“We were unrecognisable, everything went wrong, we have to forget that and move forward, we have a big lead [in La Liga]. I, the coach, am at fault.’
