Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has insisted that Los Blancos must recover their hunger for winning.
The Spanish capital side went without a major title last season and have experienced a rocky start to their 2019/20 campaign. Madrid could only manage two wins in four games in La Liga and struggled to get all three points against Levante on Saturday.
Perez is confident that his side will recover and get back to winning ways soon.
“It wasn’t the season that we wanted,” Perez said, according to Marca.
“We have to understand that this team came from winning everything, but it’s true that we’ve lacked the intensity we needed to maintain our level.
“I’ve no doubt that we’ll change that. We have to make the necessary changes and our challenge is to keep winning in an increasingly complicated and competitive situation.
“We have to recover our hunger for winning.”
Perez defended his players, who have been criticised for their poor performances during the last year.
“We’ve made a great effort to construct a winning squad,” he explained.
“On September 23 the [Best FIFA Football Awards] gala will be held, and we’ll have nine players from our current squad nominated for the best team.
“We have players who have won a lot, who have won everything, and they deserve our love and respect.”
