Manolo Sanchís has criticised the Real Madrid players, saying that “at times I think Real Madrid are not as exacting in their standards as they used to be.” In an online chat on ‘Marca‘, Sanchís says that “we have yet to see the competitive version of this Madrid and there’s not long to go before the big games.” “Madrid are in a process of change with Zidane now in charge. They need time but the competition isn’t going to give them very much. The Champions League is very demanding and even opponents apparently as reasonable as Roma are can make life difficult for you if you are not at your best, which is something we have not seen yet. But we have to have faith, these players surpass themselves in this competition.”

Sanchís also said that the ‘BBC’ need to implicate themselves in defensive tasks more: “Cristiano, Bale, Benzema… they would raise the quality level and the balance of the team if they got involved more in the recuperation of the ball.”

The former Spanish international defender believes, on the subject of the Madrid-Barça rivalry, that “the reality in terms of silverware so far this century is not good, and what hurts most of all is being compared to our biggest rivals. There are some things that have been done well, without any doubt, but if there is one area for improvement that would be self-criticism, that would be helpful for a club as big as Real Madrid are and with the demands for success being so high for this team.” And he had a message for Florentino Pérez on the subject of signings: “Tell me who the manager is going to be, and what his system is. If not, it’ll be like taking pot shots blindfolded.”
