Real Madrid's first La Liga title in four years was not enough to save Fabio Capello from the firing squad as Real sacked Capello less than two weeks after winning the Spanish league title.
Club sporting director Predrag Mijatovic said it was a difficult but unanimous decision and that the club felt that Capello was not the right person "to lead Real Madrid into the future given what we want this club to achieve."
Am I the only person who finds this completely strange? I understand the pressure cooker Real Madrid and any European giant is under but to fire a coach under these circumstances is still strange, to me at least. Real Madrid failed in the Champions League and that must have played a role as well, and winning the league title apparently did not offset that.
Can anyone try and justify this firing?
