Kings Cup

Benitez is at risk of getting axed unless some changes happen

Real Madrid’s first league match of the season concluded in a goal-less draw as they faced off with Sporting Gijon on August 23 and this also was the first game that had Rafael Benitez as the coach of the Spanish team.

This was not the best way for Rafael Benitez to kick-off his managerial career in the Santiago Bernabeu. You have to take into consideration that the Spanish manager was selected to replace Carlo Ancelotti who was able to lift the Champions League and the Kings Cup in his first season.
