Tottenham are on cloud nine after their impressive 3-1 win over Real Madrid on Wednesday night – but not everyone is impressed.
Cristiano Ronaldo had a night to forget after being outshone by Dele Alli’s double while Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen also impressed in front of the Champions League holders.
The Portuguese superstar bagged a late goal but it did little to improve his mood after Los Blancos’ second loss in a week following their shocker at Girona.
And he reckons Spurs had fortune on their side.
“It’s a bad time for us because we’re losing and we’re used to winning,” he told Football Espana.
“It’s a bad patch for us, but we want to change it and I’m sure we will. This is the beginning, we still have a lot of time to improve and I’m convinced that we will.
“There’s been no harm done, but bad runs aren’t good and we have to change things.
“We have to admit that we aren’t as we’d like to be. I don’t see things to be so bad, but we have to be confident.
“Criticism? When you don’t win, people try to look for things, but I’m here talking, showing my face for my teammates, and I’m confident that things will change.
“Irritated on the pitch? It’s normal. When you’re losing, things don’t go the way you want them to and you want to help your teammates,
“It was a very big blow to go 3-0 down, although for me it wasn’t a good reflection of what happened on the pitch.
“Their first goal was offside, just like the other day. Our attitude is to run and fight, like it was at Girona.”
