Twitter Reactions: Fans and Pundits react to Real Madrid’s exit from UCL

The 13- time Champions League winners and the current 3-time title holders, were knocked out of the European competition by Ajax Fc and the internet went crazy.

Twitter went crazy when the star of the match, Dusan Tadic completely bamboozled Casemiro with a swift turn to get away from the Brazilian and created the second goal, making it 2-0 in just 18 minutes.

Amsterdam born, former Chelsea manager, Ruud Gullit mentioned that Zinedine Zidane had seen it coming when Ronaldo looked set to leave the club. “Zidane was clever enough to get out of there on time when they lost Ronaldo. That’s the whole point. And whoever comes after that has a difficult task. You have no Ronaldo. That’s 50 goals you don’t have.” He said while appearing as a pundit for beIN Sports.

Frenchman Marcel Desailly criticized Santiago Solari for the lack of change in the system during the Argentine’s tenure. “He [Solari] has not brought any kind of new philosophy, new tactical set-up. He should have not been scared. He has not changed anything on the set-up. You either reinforce your defensive block, or you create and you allow one of them to express themself in a better way. He has not done it. It’s the same shape, same movement. So we have to blame him.”

Twitter, on the other hand, wasn’t being as polite as these pundits as the internet trolled Real Madrid for the “Who needs Ronaldo?” attitude. The Portuguese has scored a hat-trick against the same opponents in the Champions League with the same 4-1 scoreline but in Madrid’s favor.

Ramos must be embarrassed:

When there’s Real, there is a VAR meme:

A few current and former Barcelona players were quick to celebrate Ajax FC’s success, given the Catalan club’s connections to the Dutch club.

But this quote by Johan Cruyff is perfect way to end this twitter thread, of sorts!
