Lassana Diarra refused to take questions over Ramon Calderon's resignation as Real Madrid president yesterday.

The former Portsmouth midfielder explained: "We in the locker room are only talking about football and the next game against Osasuna.

"All other things off the pitch do not concern us. I will not speak about the problems of the leadership, nor will the players. I was hired to play football, I cannot talk about what happens off the field."
