Real Madrid chiefs Florentino, Valdano furious with Pellegrini tactics

Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini is under massive pressure inside the club after their Champions League defeat at Lyon. AS says Pellegrini's tactics and system left Real president Florentino Perez and general manager Jorge Valdano infuriated.

After the game, Valdano lamented: "We gave a bad impression and produced a bad result."

After the Copa humiliation at Alcorcon earlier this season, Tuesday's results have again raised major doubts for the board over Pellegrini's long-term prospects.

Perez, Valdano, Zinedine Zidane, Miguel Angel Pardeza and Emilio Butragueno all saw the game together in the director's box and were visibly upset with the performance.
