Sergio Ramos: 'Real Madrid will give everything for Santiago Solari'

Ronaldo Villarreal

The shot was heavily deflected into the net off Real Valladolid's Kike Olivas and awarded as an own goal to the defender. Ruben Alcaraz and Toni Villa both hit the woodwork with long strikes in the second half.

The Spanish giants parted ways with Julen Lopetegui in October following an embarrassing 5-1 defeat to arch rival Barcelona - which topped off what had already been a poor start to the season.

Jose Angel Pozo cancelled out Suarez's opener with a bending shot inside the post and then Alvaro Garcia put the home side ahead, tapping in from a yard within a minute of coming on as a substitute.

The Welshman played for 71 minutes and mustered two scoring chances but more worryingly gave away possession 14 times for Madrid during Saturday's home win.

Atletico could have moved above Barcelona, for a few hours at least, but instead Diego Simeone's side sit a point behind the league leaders, who face Rayo Vallecano later on Saturday.

"It was a hard occasion because of the run we've been in and changing coach", Ramos said.

Despite the win, fans were far from happy as they were seen holding banners that read, "Por este escudo hay quemorir en la grada y en el campo" which translates to "For this club badge, one has to die on the pitch and in the stands". We were on a tough run, we understand the fans' feeling and we're responsible for turning things around. Us footballers can't fight against what's going on in the press or among fans.

Solari's comments came after the club's 4-0 Copa del Rey win over Melilla on Wednesday, in which the 18-year-old provided two assists and was the standout player on the night.

Ramos coolly converted from the spot, transforming the earlier boos into relieved celebrations. And in the end we got the victory. "I think that I did well to be able to make the goal and in the end we were able to get the three points".

"You have moments of beauty when everything goes well and delicate times when you have to be organised, serious and show competitive spirit".
