Real Madrid Switch Focus To La Liga, Champions League After Shock Copa Exit
Following Real Madrid shock exit from the Copa Del Rey for the third straight season, the club has put the loss behind and are prepared to fight for glory in the Spanish league and UEFA Champions League.
This assertion was echoed by the club’s captain, Sergio Ramos who spoke to the press at the final whistle in Vigo,
“We’re disappointed in the dressing room because we’re out of the competition, but in particular given our performance. We’ll have to move on from this as soon as possible”, he said.
“Today’s a day when we have to be united and think about LaLiga and the Champions League to keep our spirits up. When we bow out of a competition it’s tough and it isn’t pleasant for either the players or the fans, but we’re going to continue to give our all and show the same attitude as we learn from our mistakes”.
“It’s better that this elimination has come at this stage rather than later on, with LaLiga and the Champions League still to come. I believe that Zidane is proud of his players and he prefers to lose in the manner. We mustn’t take anything away from our opponents.
“We have to congratulate Celta because they’ve got through the round on merit. The injuries are no excuse. We produced a great performance and we must now recover from this”.
“We’re not worried about it. We’ve had a really good first half of the campaign and we knew that the winning run wouldn’t last forever. We now have to continue on and take things step by step, focus on LaLiga and maintain the same approach to our work as we have been up until now”.
“It’s true that people always talk about luck, but I believe you have to go out and find your own luck. We created plenty of chances in the first half and on another occasion we could have gone into the break two goals to the good, but today we found ourselves trailing. Sometimes football goes your way and at other times it doesn’t”.
