Valverde: It will get better

Ernesto Valverde is sure Athletic Bilbao will turn around their form after a hammering at the hands of Real Madrid.

Athletic conceded five goals without reply – two from Karim Benzema, with Cristiano Ronaldo getting a hat-trick.

“Madrid were far superior to us today and I admit that,” Valverde said post-match, AS reports.

“You could see the difference between the teams. But we will come back.

“The squad is convinced that we will move forward. It’s a difficult time at the moment.

“We can regroup. That is what has made us strong.”
