Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad Pre Match Video
There is a campaign. A campaign against Florentino (Real President Florentino Perez), against Real Madrid, against the Real Madrid coach, consisting in criticising everything that can be criticised and changing, making up and manipulating everything that can not be criticised. That´s happening, it’s obvious, and anyone experienced can see it. I’ve been abroad 11 years and all of a sudden there are people questioning the way I’m thinking. I think we all need to do our bit, starting by me, and I’m sure we will succeed more if we do. And then the evaluations should be done at the end.”
“I’ve been with my family and luckily the English media do not exaggerate everything that happens as much as the Spanish media do. Here, every technical decision seems to be something personal, every Tweet is taken as if it could shake the foundations of the whole country. So I’ve been relaxing there with my family, only focused on what I need to do to beat Real Sociedad and what we need to do to win titles, starting this year and for as many years as we can be here.”
