It is not up to me to talk about Real Madrid's 'crisis'

Man Utd Jose Mourinho

Lopetegui is reportedly on the brink at Madrid following four defeats in their last five matches in all competitions, with the Champions League holders playing Viktoria Plzen next on Tuesday. "It's not for me to talk about the crisis of others".

Meanwhile, midfielder Dani Ceballos misses out on the squad, amid reports Lopetegui had been unhappy with the Spain international's attitude in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at home to Levante.

"That's what we're going to do, fight, both the players and the coaching staff".

"What I've learned about this club is to fight, that is the DNA of this club".

Before the Brazilian struck against Levante, their last goal in any competition came in a 1-0 win against Espanyol a month ago, with them failing to score in games against Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, CSKA Moscow and Alaves.

"It has been assumed as done and dusted from what I have read but what I have done is analyse and prepare for the rival, I am not thinking of anything else which is my responsibility", said Lopetegui. If you get rid of the coach you have to get rid of all of us.




The 27-year-old now leads the way at the top of the charts with seven Premier League goal to his name - with Chelsea unbeaten in nine matches this term - and is the early favourite for Player of the Year.

"It's all right. You can not cry. I will be the coach tomorrow". It belongs to all of us, not just the coach.

Lopetegui admitted at Monday's prematch news conference that he could lose his job before Sunday's Clasico at the Bernabeu, and the move to mirror Zidane's methods is an attempt to turn things around.

Can Real Madrid return to form and take a vital three points at home from the Czech champions in a tighter-than-expected Champions League Group G?

Viktoria Plzen enters Tuesday's match looking for its first win in the Champions League this year.

"All the people made decisions and at that moment Julen wanted to finish the World Cup and sign for Madrid, but then the president of the federation [Luis Rubiales] made the decision that he took", Alba told reporters.
