Alonso: An unexpected step back

Xabi Alonso reflects that Real Madrid need to make changes to correct their situation, after defeat to Getafe on Sunday night.

Los Blancos threw away a half-time lead to go down to their city neighbours and Alonso recognises the significance of it.

“We have failed to close out the game. Following up on having equalised, they went on a counter to score the second goal,” remember the midfielder.

“It’s a very unexpected step back, but you have to change the dynamic as soon as possible. The feelings and the dynamic of the results and the play must be replaced, but little by little.

“Things are missing, this can happen in football, but it is clear that things need to be corrected.”
