Julen Lopetegui warns Lionel Messi

Barcelona Star Lionel Messi spoke to Catalunya Radio and said that Real Madrid are little worse off now that Cristiano Ronaldo has moved away from the club. However, Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui warned not to doubt Real Madrid’s players. Lopetegui said to Onda Cero : "I would not doubt the players of Real Madrid. "We have done okay but it is only the start and we have three weeks ahead with the Champions League. "We have achieved the aim of nine points and now we need to reflect. The players need to come back fit and we will see what happens. "Our target is everything this season. With the league, you have to always be on form and it rewards consistency but we want to win everything." On Ronaldo's departure, Lopetegui added: "I did not speak to him, it was a situation where he had already decided to leave and the club went along with this for a player who had been tremendous. They allowed this desire and restlessness that he had. "I expressed from the start [the players I wanted]. I thought the squad was fantastic, the players are very good in all areas of the pitch and are capable to compete for titles."
