Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos says the players are behind under-pressure coach Rafa Benitez.
When asked after Real’s 10-2 win over Rayo on Sunday why club president Florentino Perez had recently backed Benitez, Ramos said : “If ‘el presi’ says that for sure it must be for a reason.
“We are all just pawns here, and he [Florentino] is the king.
“We are with the coach. We try and take on his ideas, and we try and execute them. It does not always come off as you want, but at least there is fight in the team, and everything is left on the pitch.”
