Cruyff: Seven Years, One Title? Real Are Shocking

FC Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff slammed Real Madrid’s poor La Liga record in recent years, calling it “unacceptable”.

The Dutchman feels that Los Blancos have been poor in the La Liga title race for the last seven seasons, even saying that in recent games it looked like the players never wanted their colleagues to find the net, contrary to Barcelona.

“It's ridiculous that they have only won the league once in seven years,” he told Marca.

“Losing the title race once isn't a problem, but doing so for so many seasons is unacceptable.

“I had doubts whether any Real Madrid players actually wanted their teammates to score in recent games.

“That's the difference between them and Barça, where everybody pulls together to score goals.”

Cruyff went on to talk about the European football leagues, suggesting that the game isn’t all about money these days, as Juventus never spent as much as Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

“Spanish and Italian football have been a cut above the rest,” he continued.

“The Premier League has been disappointing.

“It's been proven once again that it isn't all about money.

“I say that about both PSG and Manchester City, who had a lot more money to spend than Juventus.”

Real last won the La Liga title in the 2011/12 season, and since then have fallen behind Barcelona on a few occasions, as well as Atletico Madrid.
