Real Madrid 'disappointed' by poor performances from one big player

Real Madrid have been left disappointed by the poor performances of their captain Nacho Fernandez this season, according to Relevo.

Los Blancos had high hopes that Nacho would step up after season-ending ACL injuries to Eder Militao and David Alaba but that hasn't been the case. Instead, the Spaniard is perceived as a weak link in Real Madrid's otherwise concrete-tight defence.

With Nacho starting at the heart of Real Madrid's defence, Los Blancos have conceded 12 goals in their last seven games. It's an alarming number for the title contenders in La Liga and the Champions League.

Nacho has been caught napping in Madrid's last three games as Los Blancos failed to shut the back door and escaped by the skin of their teeth. A case in point is that the captain did not win a single ground or aerial duel in that game at Las Palmas and was culpable for the only goal scored by the hosts.

Also, Real Madrid no longer trusts the centre-back partnership of Nacho and Antonio Rudiger as they are yet to keep a clean sheet when playing together this season.

However, Real Madrid have decided they will not sign a new defender this January. The club expects Eder Militao to recover soon and return to helping the team before the end of the season.

As for Nacho, he could well be allowed to leave when his contract ends in June.
