Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says Real Madrid remains fully behind coach Rafa Benitez despite the humiliating loss to Barcelona this weekend.

Perez pledged his full support to Benitez in a hastily called news conference on Monday, two days after the 4-0 defeat to Barcelona prompted widespread calls for the coach’s resignation.

It was the first time Perez talked publicly since Saturday’s game, when he and Benitez were loudly jeered by the home fans at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Perez said he understands the ”disappointment of fans after what happened,” but asked them to ”more than ever” display their ”support to the team and to the players.”
