Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has admitted that their 5-0 humiliation to Barcelona in Monday night's Clasico was the worst defeat in the history of the club.
Los Blancos were blown away by their arch-rivals at Camp Nou as coach Jose Mourinho suffered the worst defeat of his managerial career. It was also the first time that Madrid lost a competitive game this season and Perez was far from happy.
"It was the worst game in the history of Real Madrid," Perez said, according to Goal.com Spain. "It was a very bad match, awful, but we had been successful in the 19 games prior to it. There is not the slightest doubt that we have the right coach."
The Madrid supremo also underlined his intention to delve into the transfer market in January.
"We must go to the winter market; we need a couple of signings to strengthen the team. Regardless of whether or not [Gonzalo] Higuain goes under the knife, we need a new striker and maybe a central midfielder.
Mourinho was right and the first big test of the season has demonstrated our shortcomings."
