"We had 34 or 35 shots at goal, 14 on target, nine corners, four balls off the woodwork, a goal disallowed", Lopetegui claimed, padding the numbers just a little. "But football is won by goals, not merit". After the restart, the home fans sang "echale huevos", meaning, "play with some balls". They went on to lose the La Liga clash 2-1.

Madrid are said to have given Lopetegui until the end of the month to turn things around with upcoming fixtures against Levante, Viktoria Plzen and Barcelona.

Madrid, which began the match without Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema who are coming off injuries, created many chances but was unable to break through the Levante defence. "These are technical questions and choices that are Julen's to make", he said, diplomatically.

SER reported that after the game, and following the required media duty from players and managers, a meeting took place at the Santiago Bernabéu between club president Florentino Pérez and Lopetegui. He has a really good relationship with us. "We must keep trying so that this feeling of playing well is translated into goals for us".

"We have to show our faces on the pitch and in front of the cameras. We are not afraid, but we are anxious".

"But such an important decision of the club does not depend on the opinion of a player". Ramos accepted Perez had been to the dressing room, yet would not disclose what had been discussed. As captain, we talk a lot.

Former Real Madrid superstar Michael Essien has revealed that current Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui has only a matter of time to fix things.

In the nine years Ronaldo spent at the Bernabeu, he scored 450 goals in only 438 appearances, including 44 in 44 games last season, suggesting that even at 33, he was losing none of his potency.

The German World Cup victor has anchored the Real midfield to three consecutive Champions League titles, but he has hinted at being unhappy with his role in new manager Julen Lopetegui's system.

The rich history and bulging trophy cabinet means added pressure on Lopetegui, who now has an unwanted record to his name too.
