"Not only whistles to the coach are a symptom of what the fans think but also a relief for the president"
Carlo Ancelotti is on the spotlight. Yesterday he received all the rage. The only direct whistles were for him. Bernabéu focused the anger to the coach with a great whistling when Isco was subbed-off for Illarramendi. The Italian saw that the credit won in Lisboa is ending and that his continuity is not clear.
The coach knows he doesn't convince the board. Yes, he won La Décima Champions League. He has the victories record. But they don't like him. Last season, after losing El Clásico on April and before Copa del Rey final, everything was ready for his firing as coach. But match ball saved him. And also winning the Champions League final in Lisboa. This compensated the fact of having lost La Liga.

But now the credit is over. The supporters don't accept that the team lost 5 points in La Liga in a month. An above all that the solution in a tied match is replacing Isco for Illarramendi.
Ancelotti is hostage of the forward. He can't replace Bale, Benzema or Cristiano. He publicly said that. If they are ok, the play. The problem is that with this situation, if a match is stuck, he has less options.
Yesterday the affected was Isco and Bernabéu didn't understand that. Not only whistles to the coach are a symptom of what the fans think but also a relief for the president. He knows that if the crowd points at Ancelotti, in case of danger he will end unhurt and Ancelotti's credit is ending. If they are not leaders after match at Camp Nou, he will be in the red.
