The first reports after Tuesday's embarrassing performance are out. According to Spanish radio COPE, Florentino Pérez went to Real Madrid's dressing room after the game and asked Carlo Ancelotti to"get Real Madrid out of this slump".

According to COPE's report, Florentino let Ancelotti know how angry he was after Real Madrid's display, the full message being.

This is it, we can't keep going this way. We need to change the situation drastically and you can make the decisions you want, but you have to fix this.

It will be interesting to see if Ancelotti does indeed "make decisions" like benching some players that were supposed to be crucial, but Real Madrid's home game against Levante next Sunday could be a turbulent one.

COPE also say that Ancelotti's meeting with the players was calm.
