Real Madrid defender Nacho, spoke to the media after the match against Viktoria Plzen about the bad moment that Julen Lopetegui is going through.
Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui is going through the most difficult moments of his career, players like Nacho Fernandez are very aware of how much the boss is suffering and always try to express their support for their boss.
Sometimes in the top clubs in European football, it’s complicated to convince the players to keep winning trophies, especially if they are coming from winning four out of the last five Champions League titles.
It was quite evident that this dip in form was eventually going to happen, it’s unfortunate that this is happening in the same moment that Julen Lopetegui took control of the squad.
Real Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez attended a public event this Wednesday and he was questioned by the press about the manager.
“I see a hurt Julen, he’s just like every one of us. We are all professionals and all we think about is winning,” said Nacho via Cadena Cope.
“We have to get through these complicated moments and now we have to hold the pressure and try to win El Clasico.”
“El Clasico is a very special match, it’s a beautiful game that everybody wants to play. We have been through regular matches and we got back some good feelings with yesterday’s victory. We will get to this match very eager to play.”
“Julen staying in Real Madrid is not my decision, all I care as his player is to win next Sunday and I want Julen to stay in the club.”
“We are all to blame for this situation because we are a team. We can’t be looking out for what the press has to say about this situation, we have to remain focused on winning matches,” he concluded.
