It’s an emptied Guti! The Real Madrid legend bizarrely spends the first THREE minutes of a Spanish TV show sitting in despair on camera after Manchester City’s crushing Champions League semi-final victory
Real Madrid legend Guti couldn’t hide his despair after his former club pulled out of the Champions League following their semi-final loss to Manchester City.
Madrid, holders of the hallowed jug-eared trophy until their knockout in the last four, were clinically dispatched by Pep Guardiola’s side to the Etihad last night.
Bernardo Silva’s first-half brace had left the visitors with a mountain to climb, before Manuel Akanji headed home a free-kick and Julian Alvarez scored in stoppage time.
As a result, Carlo Ancelotti’s heavyweights suffered a crushing 5-1 aggregate defeat on both legs, despite drawing the first leg at the Bernabeu.
And the emphatic manner of the backhand saw Guti vent his frustration live on television.

For the first three minutes of the enigmatic sports broadcast “El Chiringuito”, Guti was filmed sitting on the panel in stony silence, his face etched in visible dismay.
Hilariously, the shot continued to change, flashing Guti from multiple angles as images of scruffy-looking Madrid players appeared on the big screen.
As he collected his thoughts, dramatic music also played in the background.
Eventually, the former midfielder, who represented Los Blancos at senior level for 15 seasons, launched into a red-faced rant about Madrid’s poor performances.
“Did Real Madrid play football?” What kind of plan did the coach have? he said.
“A real one has only shown that they urgently need reinforcements this summer and immediately. This team is read and too old. Something will have to be done, some players will have to be fired. No, I don’t understand Nothing.
“What was the coach thinking? Was he expecting Vinicius’ miracle? What is Plan B? Obviously, there isn’t.
“Ancelotti and all the players were desperate. The only one who doesn’t deserve criticism is [Thibaut] Courteous. Everyone should clean their heads.

Previously, Guti hit City and singled out Jack Grealish for particular criticism.
Speaking on the same show after the first leg, he said: “The coaches have changed roles, now the daring is Ancelotti and the defensive is Guardiola.”
“Manchester City have less offensively. They used to have two full-backs who came lightning from behind and now they don’t. They put Bernardo Silva, who is not a winger, and they lose a player there.
“City have Jack Grealish, who doesn’t dribble anyone. In the Premier League he may be smarter than everyone else, but I haven’t seen him in the Champions League.”
After booking their place in Istanbul, City will face Inter Milan on June 10.
