Real Madrid need to improve defence

Nacho Fernandez met with journalists on Monday afternoon and revealed that Los Blancos’ current form was not good enough to compete for trophies at the end of the season. Real Madrid’s domestic campaign took another hammer on Saturday’s defeat at Alaves, but the Spanish defender knows the team needs to improve at the back, and quickly. “We try to be good defensively because that’s where games are won,” Nacho told reporters. “What we were doing from behind was not how to win titles. We are working to improve everything bad”. Nacho also made it remarkably clear to any potential suitors that he was delighted at Real Madrid and would not move for anyone.

Nacho wants to stay with Real Madrid

It is likely to be a welcome boost to both Zinedine Zidane, and Florentino Perez, with the Spain international, has proven to be both a reliable member of the team member on the field and a trouble-free figure at the negotiating table. “I never expected to play even one game for Real Madrid, but I played in almost 200,” Nacho explained. “I’m happy, and I’m where I want to be, I don’t expect any more. I am fighting for a club that I always wanted to be a part of, offers come every summer. But I repeat that I’m happy, I would like to play more of course. But I wouldn’t move for anyone”. The contractual situation of Sergio Ramos is still not officially settled. But Nacho is passionate about the positive role of the captain in the dressing room.

“I always felt critical in this team, even if I didn’t play a lot,” Nacho added. “I don’t play as much as Ramos, but I have always considered myself an important figure. Now, without Sergio, I play in my best position, where I am most comfortable. And I will continue to fight to play as many minutes as possible.”
