Dani Carvajal admits Real Madrid have had a ‘s*** season’ following their Champions League exit at the hands of Ajax on Tuesday evening.

The current European champions held a 2-1 advantage from the first leg in Amsterdam but slumped to a 4-1 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid won the FIFA Club World Cup in December but are now on course to finish the season without a domestic trophy as they were knocked out the Copa del Rey by Barcelona and are 12 points behind them in La Liga with just 12 games remaining.

And now with no chance of retaining their Champions League crown for a fourth consecutive season, Carvajal concedes Madrid’s season is a failure.

‘I think I’ve never had this feeling of discomfort, I do not know how to explain it,’ he told Movistar Plus.

‘It’s never easy to come from two defeats against Barcelona, today we came with a clear mind of wanting to win, two errors put us 0-2, the start of the second half is good but 0-3 kills us.

‘I do not see the end of the cycle, we have a young team and the margin for improvement is enormous, we have to face it and not hide, we’ve had a s*** season.’
