Real Madrid's injury concerns worsened on Monday when they confirmed midfielder Toni Kroos has suffered a torn adductor muscle and looks set to miss most of the January schedule.
Los Blancos sit 10 points behind rivals FC Barcelona after their 2-0 loss to Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday evening. "I've always defended the VAR system, but it has to be improved because what we've seen was scandalous", Ramos was quoted by All Football as saying at post-match.
Sociedad were awarded a penalty seconds into the match after Casemiro, scrambling to cover for a giveaway down the left, fouled Mikel Merino inside the box.
Lucas Vazquez made it 2-0 against Valencia but the referee wanted to double check VAR just in case and he was proven to be correct in his initial viewing.
"For my one, Illarramendi pushed me but he did a good job to convince the official that it was (not) the case, but the Vinicius one is a different incident and much clearer".
We will see how everything ends but Isco's exit from Madrid, save a drastic change on the bench, looks certain.
Fans outraged after A Star Is Born snubbed at Golden Globes
Fiji Water woman is a star! As for her favorite photobomb of the night, the Golden Globe, err, "honor" goes to a certain comedian. The movie awards season hit top gear yesterday when the Golden Globes, the entree to the Oscars, were awarded in Beverly Hills.
Although goals have reappeared in the Solari era after the second longest drought in club history under his predecessor Julen Lopetegui, Madrid lack menace in attack.
"We've been through a lot of tough times and this is another such spell".
'We're looking to win a title. "But, when you have the chance to look over the evidence again and you do not, it's hard to understand". "Solari has our confidence and we won't be looking for excuses with him or blame him".
"We're going to keeping battling, but it's hard because Barcelona don't usually slip up and the gap is opening up. Real Madrid won't lie down, even if we're kicked seven times".
It has been a testing season for Real Madrid, and last night's humiliating defeat to 12th place Real Sociedad was the cherry on top of the slightly mouldy cake for Santiago Solari and his Los Blancos side.
