One player who could have made a difference for Lopetegui was Cristiano Ronaldo but the Portugal international has since made a move to Turin to join the serie A champions Juventus.
The Juventus player could have solved Madrid scoring problems and now Nacho Fernandez has admitted they are missing his influence saying he would have been a difference in those matches.
“It is a difficult subject for us. I’ve said it several times. If it were up to us we would love to have Cristiano in the squad because we had him for many years and he is a player who makes a difference,” Nacho told reporters.
“But it is a situation where we cannot feel sorry for ourselves because of Cristiano. He chose to leave.”We are grateful for everything he did for us and we wish him the best of luck. But we cannot feel sorry for someone who is no longer with us. It isn’t our fault he left, nor was it up to us to make him stay.
“I hope he has the best of luck and we have to work through the present and future in the best way we can with what we have.”However, the Spain international said there’s nothing they can do to change the situation adding the players now have to take up responsibility as they try to turn results around.
But we have to keep our cool in this sport and save our analysis for when the season finishes. But we have a lot of confidence in the players we have.” Madrid will be back in La Liga action on October 20 at home to Levante, with the Clasico away to Barcelona looming the following Sunday.
Ernesto Valverde’s men have also endured mixed fortunes so far this season, all of which points to an open Clasico with everything to play for.”Clasicos are Clasicos.
In the end, when the ball starts rolling, it doesn’t matter what position you are in, or how many points separate each team,” Nacho affirmed.
“We saw that last year. They are special games. First, we have to beat Levante and Viktoria [Plzen, in the Champions League] to get there with more confidence, but the Clasico always comes at the right time.”
