    I was just wondering what everyone out there thinks will happen to Manuel Pellegrini after Real Madrid's early exit from UEFA Champions League this year. Madrid has been known to not give there coaches long to prove themselves. Will Pellegrini be out soon or will there impressive showing in La Liga keep him afloat?

      In my opinion it all depends if they could get a suitable candidate to replace him, and I would bet that Madrid is busy behind the scenes already talking to potential replacements. If you believe the rumours, apparently the possible candidates are: Morinho, Benitez and Fabio Capello......Out of these I think they can land Benitez, but not the other two....

        I believe he has done a great job a Villarreal previously and with the number of changes he made to the team he needs time to get the best from them. Real Madrid generally does not have much patience when it comes to coaches but I would hope they at least give Pellegrini a chance to contend the League Championship.
        Although the press is claiming that Capello, Mourinho, Ancellotti and Benitez are the best candidates, I honestly believe the media simply do not understand what Pellegrini has achieved and what he can achieve with time.  We have to bear in mind they are competing against one of the most complete teams in the world, Barcelona.

        Capello may be available after the world cup however I do not believe he would be welcomed back to the Bernabeau. He did not seem to have the best of times there before.
        Benitez has a long contract with Liverpool, i don’t believe they will pay off the remainder of his contract and that would require Madrid to pay in the region of 16 million pounds to get him.

          There is no doubt Pellegrini is a great coach, however it is also a huge business and they have invested over 200 million in a squad that didn`t make the last 8 in the Champions League, again! It`s is a question of just how much money Real Madrid lost because of it....It`s a fact that whatever the board thinks is best will happen and that doesn`t always mean giving more time to the existing coach, however good he is. With the players they have it was a shameful display altogether and that isno disrespect to Lyon......Should they come second in LaLiga, Pellegrini is defenitely out.

    I agree. I'm thinking they are going to give him the chance to see if he can bring the La Liga title back to Madrid. It's kind of a shame because with all the additions to the team this year they expected them to mesh together instantly to bring them a Champions League title. Pellegrini kind of gets the short end of the stick it seems. I'm hoping he gets to stick around at least into next year so he has a full season under his belt with the team I think he could do a lot of good.

      I am so glad that Barca beat Real at the weekend. It really is good beating evil in football terms.

      As for Pelligrini, I don't understand why they gave him the job in the first place. He has never achieved much in Spain or anywhere else in terms of winning trophies. The real madrid fans deserve the current misery they are in because their rashness has been the making of it.
