Dani Carvajal declares Real Madrid's 's--- season' over after Ajax defeat

Ajax produced a stunning 4-1 victory over the Spanish giants, while Tottenham won 1-0 away to progress to the quarterfinals.

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal said his team had "no excuses" after being shocked 4-1 by Ajax at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night to crash out of the Champions League 5-3 on aggregate, with the Spain international adding that his club's "s--- season" was now already over.

Leading 2-1 from last month's last-16 first leg, Madrid hit the post through Raphael Varane early on, but a young Ajax team kept attacking and deservedly went 2-0 up after 18 minutes through Hakim Ziyech and David Neres.


Dani Carvajal run ragged, Vinicius a rare bright spot as Madrid eliminated from Copa del Rey

MADRID -- Real Madrid slipped to a 3-0 defeat in tonight's Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Barcelona at the Bernabeu. That result means the Catalans go through 4-1 on aggregate to May 25th's final against either Real Betis or Valencia.

Real Madrid stars would keep a locker for PSG's Neymar - Dani Carvajal

Former Brazil international Kaka says his country's success at the World Cup depends on the team's ability to protect their star man.

Dani Carvajal has said he would "keep a locker" for Neymar if Real Madrid decided to sign the Brazil star from Paris Saint-Germain.

Madrid president Florentino Perez has tracked Neymar, who spent three seasons at Barcelona, for more than a decade, with recent reports claiming that a €350 million deal was being put together to bring him to the Bernabeu.

Asked by "El Larguero" radio show whether Neymar was "born to play at Madrid," Spain defender Carvajal said he would "bring many good things."
