*Update 8 de marzo de 2020

It was poor game from us. We weren't any good in the either the first half or the second half. Lots of mistakes, we lost the ball loads. When you're not at the right level things are difficult.

What was wrong with Real Madrid today?

We lacked everything today. It's our worst game of the season. We lacked energy, football, possession, aggressiveness. It's an off day and that can happen. I'm responsible. We can't go mad, but we're not happy.

Poor start

We started the game badly. You can start badly, but you've got 45 minutes to change and we weren't able to. There's no explanation. It's not one thing.

Solution for Real Madrid

We'll keep going. There are solutions. Up to now we've had a good season. There are good things and bad things, but we can move on up. We didn't deserve to win. It's a shame and we need to analyse everything.

Chances of winning LaLiga?

There are 11 games left and we'll fight for LaLiga. This won't lose us the Liga. Today we didn't play well enough to win.

Players

I don't blame them. I'm with them to the death. I'm to blame.
