Title not impossible for Real - Ramos



Sergio Ramos believes winning La Liga will be difficult but not impossible for Real Madrid after they slipped 16 points behind leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona.

"La Liga has become very difficult but not impossible," said the Spain defender, who is suspended for Sunday's game at home to Real Sociedad. "We have to carry on with enthusiasm, achieving victories.

"Madrid is obliged as a whole to carry on fighting for every title. All the players, from the first to the last, we are on the right track, our attitude has always been good.

"I don't think it is a problem with anxiousness. I think in football you get bad streaks, perhaps in some games things have not turned out the way we wanted and especially in front of the goal we have not had the same efficiency we had last year."

Ramos was referring to Real's 2-2 draw against Espanyol on 16 December - after which Jose Mourinho said he believed the league title was "impossible" - and a 3-2 loss away to Malaga one week later when the Portuguese coach unexpectedly benched captain and goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

Ramos, who reportedly had some tense moments with Mourinho early in the season, played down the omission of Casillas.

He said: "We go through good times, bad times, and above all the coach's decision rules. Where there is a boss, the sailors don't give the commands."
