Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro admits they've failed to cope with the raft of injuries the squad has suffered. "I am only interested in being able to retrieve our injured players, if we have everyone back, we can beat anyone," said Cannavaro. "With ten absentees, in this period we could lose against anyone."

On his future, Cannavaro added: "I am not rushing. The first word must come from Madrid. If they do not want to renew my contract, we will then assess the bids and seek a solution. But only after having spoken with them.

"The relationship is optimal. Meanwhile, let's see how the season ends."
