Real Madrid had been trapped on a plane for greater than two hours on Friday after ice on the runway of Barajas airport prevented their plane from taking off as a snowstorm buffeted the nation.
“They told us the outlook is bleak. The take-off runways are closed and that the ice-removing machines are for landing,” a Real spokesman mentioned on Friday.
“We estimate that we have been here more than two hours. The sense of outrage is already irrepressible.”
