Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has delivered his Christmas message to fans. Perez admits the club is in "crisis".

"We love an escape and we hope that in 2013 we can escape from this brutal crisis. Real Madrid never gives up, not in a sporting sense and not in the sense that we want to improve our relations. Real Madrid is not a normal club. It has made it to 110 years of history having kept its identity, belonging to its members, and at the level we are at. Thanks to all of you because you help us to be a little better, and let's hope the escape become real in 2013."
