Spanish press reaction: 'Goodbye Real Madrid, Goodbye Pellegrini'

Terms such as "failure", "catastrophe" and "nightmare" filled the Spanish press this morning in the wake of Real Madrid's Champions League exit at the hands of Lyon.

n a bid to take Madrid back to the top of the domestic and European game, the nine-time European champions spent in the region of €250 million on new players - including a world-record €94m on Ronaldo.

El Pais's headline read: "Football has no price."

It continued: "Lyon question the realism of the mega-project of Florentino Perez and Madrid, who ran out of steam in the second half, fell for the sixth successive season in the last-16.

"Titles are not bought, they are won."

Barcelona-based sports dailies El Mundo Deportivo and Sport, meanwhile, both went with a huge "KO" on their front pages.

El Mundo Deportivo also twisted the knife by highlighting the possibility of Madrid's arch rivals Barca defending their European crown at the Bernabeu in May.

"Madrid will not be in the Bernabeu final! Failure of Florentino's project, incapable of overcoming the last-16 of the Champions League for the sixth successive year," the paper continued.

"Barca's dream of winning their fourth European Cup in Chamartin (Bernabeu) grows."

Sport added on their front page: "The great failure", whilst underneath showing the pictures of Perez, Pellegrini, Ronaldo and Kaka with captions alongside them.

The captions read: "'Florentino, broken. 300million thrown away'. 'Pellegrini, sentenced. The Bernabeu calls for his head'. 'Cristiano, humiliated. He promised every title and has already lost two'. 'Kaka, the next problem. He left the pitch insulting the coach'."

Inside, Sport added: "Galactic humiliation", referring to the 'Galacticos' term given to Perez's star-studded and expensively-assembled squads of now and during his pervious time as president between 2000-2006.
