Sergio Ramos: Pleased with win over Real Mallorca

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos expects his side to be challenging for the title at the end of the season, despite being eight points behind current pace setters Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Early season defeats against Sevilla and Getafe have left Los Blancos playing catch-up, although a 5-0 victory at Real Mallorca last weekend indicated Jose Mourinho's men are getting back to top form.

"The win against Mallorca was important," Ramos said. "It's a tough place for us to go and get a result. We're up there and will keep on fighting.

The triumph at the ONO Estadi leaves Madrid in fourth place but the club are in no mood to give up the title to their bitterest rivals.

"We are motivated by the challenge to catch up with Barcelona," Ramos added.. "We're going to fight for the league title right to the end and we expect to be in with a shout.

"Right now there are two teams on top of their game, Barcelona and Atl├ętico de Madrid, but if we keep winning our games we'll put them under a lot of pressure."

And midfielder Jose Callejon believes the team spirit at the club will drive them to glory.

"The dressing room is united and we all have a lot of faith in each player we have alongside us. That's the important thing, that we trust in each other," Callejon told Bwin.

"To be able to say at the end of the season that all the players have given their all on the pitch, that we have put our hearts and souls into all the games and training sessions. Hopefully we'll give the fans a lot to celebrate and win titles."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
