Ancelotti slammed by Real legend after El Clasico nightmare as Vinicius slated for ‘caring more about ref than playing'

CARLO ANCELOTTI has come under fire after Real Madrid were thrashed 4-0 in El Clasico.

Legendary Galactico Guti has slammed the Bernabeu boss for failing to change things as his side was being hammered by Barcelona on Sunday.

With an array of talent waiting in the wings,Ancelotti's lack of attacking substitutions left the former midfielder stunned.

Despite being 2-0 down at half-time following goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ronald Araujo, Ancelotti's only change was to bring on forward Mariano – who hasn't played for Madrid this year.

Speaking on El Chiringutio Guti said: "I'm Ancelotti and I look at the bench and I have Hazard, Jovic, [Gareth] Bale, Isco… And you're telling me that I can't sub any of them in? What's going on? I am getting lost.

'I watch the game against Barcelona and I see the Real Madrid bench and I find that in the second half the first change from Madrid is Mariano… How can this be? Aren't Bale and Hazard there? Madrid's first offensive change Mariano, who hasn't played this year?"
