Pellegrini under pressure at Real Madrid

Pellegrini under pressure at Real Madrid

Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini's future is under question after the Spanish club was humiliated 4-0 by third-division club Alcorcon in the Copa del Rey.
Defender Raul Albiol labeled Tuesday's match a "disaster." Sports daily Marca splashed "Pellegrini go already!" across its front page Wednesday, while AS newspaper said: "This is starting to look a lot like the last time," referring to the previous galactico era.
Madrid has lost three of five games without injured star Cristiano Ronaldo, part of Madrid's ⁈llion ($365 million) offseason overhaul. Madrid's player budget is more than 400 times higher than Alcorcon's.
Pellegrini vowed to stay on after the match.
