Mourinho declared it "impossible" after Real fell 13 points behind Barcelona.
â€śWe canâ€™t say La Liga is over, itâ€™s our competitive gene, and weâ€™re going to keep fighting. What we want to achieve is going to be difficult,â€ť said Xabi.
He also responded about the teamâ€™s relationship with Mourinho after the adverse outcomes: â€śWe talk internally. Weâ€™re professionals and we abide by what the coach says."
