Real Madrid chief Butragueno insists they won't panic buy after Tallinn shock

Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno insists they won't panic buy after defeat to Atletico Madrid in Tallinn.

Real were thumped 4-2 by Atletico in the European Super Cup on Wednesday night.

"Before the game I told you that we were very happy with the squad and now the thought is the same, this match does not change it," said Butragueno.

"The result was not what we expected, in the first half we were better with more football and more initiative than them, in the second we got ahead, Casemiro's injury could hurt us, he covers a position which is very important, they tied us and in the extra time they beat us."
