Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini says he can speculation over his job future.
With just seven games to go in the season, Madrid know they need an immediate response to that loss, and Pellegrini insists it is the match against Almeria he is focused on rather than what discussions might be going on about his job.
"My future is what least concerns me right now. I'm not worried about what will happen. We will sit down at the appropriate time to discuss options. Right now is not the time. All we must do now is focus on the next seven matches," said Pellegrini.
Nevertheless, Pellegrini does hope to still be in charge of the Spanish giants heading into next season.
"Since the start I've always had critics, who've always looked at the negative things. I have one more year on my contract and I hope to complete it, and from the club I've not had any hint I won't complete it. Everything else could be just rumours," he added.
