Midfielder Casemiro admits Real Madrid now must focus on improving their form for next season following a disastrous campaign.
Speaking after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat against Real Sociedad, the Brazilian commented that the level of performances and results from his side have not been good enough this campaign.
“We have to think about next season and how to improve,” Casemiro told reporters, as cited by Marca.
“We have three points left to fight for at home and we have to try and improve our performance for that but we need to work hard to improve our level both at home and away.
“Against Real Sociedad? We started well and Brahim’s goal was a reflection of this but the game was shaped by the red card, because it is hard enough to play with 11 players never mind 10.
“La Real are a great side and made things very difficult for us, they deserved the win.”
The defeat at the Anoeta was Madrid’s 11th in La Liga this season and their 17th across all competitions their worst record in 20 years.
