Ramos: Neither praise nor criticism can change Real Madrid’s focus
A difficult week for Real Madrid culminated with an impressive win over Eibar, and Sergio Ramos insists his side remain focused no matter if they are praised or criticised.
Los Blancos bounced back from their 3-3 draw at home against Las Palmas with a convincing 4-1 victory at Estadio Ipurua and Ramos claims the togetherness of the players is what helps them achieve their goals.
“One of the things that stands out for me is the solidarity and unity of the team,” Ramos said. “The more problems there are, the more relaxed we need to be – neither praise nor criticism can change our focus.”
The Real Madrid skipper was happy to get another three points on the board.
Two goals from Karim Benzema, as well as strikes from James Rodriguez and Marco Asensio sealed the victory.
But Ramos insists it was not as easy as the scoreline made it seem.
“It was a difficult victory in a difficult situation which meant we had to come here and win in a difficult ground,” he added.
“Before the game, we had clear ideas of how to approach the match, to win the second balls and press.
“I am very happy, we worked hard and continue to put pressure on our title rivals.”
