Sami Khedira: Real Madrid are back on track

Sami Khedira: Real Madrid are back on track

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira believes the Spanish champions are back on the right track after a disappointing first half to the season.

Madrid lost four times in La Liga before Christmas - twice as many defeats as they suffered in the whole of last season - as they fell 18 points behind leaders Barcelona.

However, since the new year Jose Mourinho's men have won four of their five league and cup matches, drawing the other.

On Sunday they recorded a stunning 5-0 win over Valencia at the Mestalla to cut the gap to Barca back to 15 points following the Catalan club's defeat to Real Sociedad the previous day.

Germany international Khedira told reporters today: "We had a difficult situation, we weren't doing well, and we talked about it together and saw it was going badly.

"We've worked hard these past weeks and I think we're moving in the right direction. We're playing well, really tight, and I think it's going to give us future results."

Madrid face Valencia again tomorrow night in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final at the Mestalla, where the capital club defend a 2-0 lead from the first leg.

If Madrid get through then they could meet arch-rivals Barca in the semi-finals, but Khedira insists his side are not looking that far ahead.

"We have to focus on tomorrow's match and it doesn't matter if we'll play against Barcelona or Malaga," he said.

"We're in a good place and I think we can win and move on. We'll talk about it when we have our spot in the next round."

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...

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.
