Real Madrid president Florentino visited players after dismal Shakhtar Donetsk defeat

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez visited the home dressing room after their shock Champions League defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk.

Marca says there were long faces and there was tension in the Real Madrid dressing room following Real Madrid's 3-2 defeat to Shakhtar on Wednesday night.

Club president Perez saw that first hand, as he stopped by to see the players following their second defeat in a row.

It's normal for Perez to visit the dressing room following a match, but this time his visit was much briefer.

As such, he was only there for three minutes as this wasn't a night for casual conversations.
