Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster held crisis talks with his players at training yesterday.

AS says Schuster held talks with the squad immediately after training and later met one-on-one with several from the leadership group.

In his address to the squad, the German emphasised the players' unity: "We win together and so we lose together also. Do not obsess over what has happened. The form is good, exactly the same as last season - and remember we won the league with this form."

Schuster also took feedback from the group and all comments were of a positive tone.

Meanwhile, it's said that privately Schuster has confessed their next two games against Malaga and BATE Borisov are 'finals'. The coach knows both are 'must-win' games, otherwise the pressure coming from the Santiago Bernabeu crowd will become unbearable for his players.
