Raphael Varane: We need to be united


Raphael Varane has called on Real Madrid’s players and fans to be more united than ever as they look to overcome a slump in form and regain momentum in the title race.

Los Blancos lost 1-0 to Athletic Bilbao at San Mames on Saturday evening meaning Barcelona can overtake them in the league. It means Carlo Ancelotti’s men will most probably have to win at the Camp Nou if they are to have any hope of winning La Liga for the first time since 2012.

Speak to reporters after the game, Varane said the players were disappointed with events in the Basque Country. But he added the players are determined to put things right as soon as possible.

“We are not enjoying our best moment of form at the moment. We are lacking in a few small things. They are little details that end up costing you dearly. We need to be more united than ever, continue working and stay positive. Nothing has been decided yet, we are going to fight until the end like we know how to because the upcoming weeks are going to be decisive,” he stated.

And he added: “We are lacking that pass that can damage opponents. The attitude is good, we have to keep fighting and with that good attitude things will improve. We know the match in the Camp Nou will be very important and we will prepare well for it, but before that we have to win against Schalke and Levante.”
