Benitez backed or sacked? Perez calls Real Madrid media conference
The Blancos' 4-0 thrashing at home to Barcelona on Saturday has sparked rumours that their head coach's job is at risk, and the club chief will address the press on Monday.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has called a media conference on Monday where he is expected to address rumours that Rafa Benitez's job is at risk.
Los Blancos followed up their loss to Sevilla before the international break with a four-goal defeat at home to Barcelona in the Clasico at the weekend.
That leaves Madrid six points behind Barca, who lead the table, while Atletico Madrid leapfrogged them into second place with their win over Real Betis on Sunday.
