Madrid's hopes of retaining the La Liga title are in tatters after a draw at home to Espanyol at the weekend left them further off the pace domestically.
“If we were winning it was because we were united, now we must all pull the cart. It would be a mistake to throw away the season at this point. We know the League is difficult, but we must keep fighting,” he said.
“We cannot speak of a lack of attitude and the Coach will say the same. Sometimes going into other games we have not had the same attitude as we did for this one.
“We’ve had no luck and have been made to pay for it. There is no motivation problem. The bit of luck we have had in other games has been denied us today.”
