INSIDER: Real Madrid players upset with backlash after win at Atalanta

Real Madrid's players feel they're being treated unfairly by the local press.

After victory at Champions League opponents Atalanta, Real's players were delighted with the win.

But on El Chiringuito, Jose Luis Sánchez declared: "When the game ended they were happy, a part of the work had been done.

"But there was some discomfort because of what they were reading about the impact of the victory.

"The level of criticism is too great for such a difficult moment, with so many injured, nothing is granted to them.

"They do not see any iota of being generous with that dressing room. They consider that they were in a critical situation, with many injured. Atalanta could cause them a lot of damage, they have been counteracted, and they feel that they are given absolutely nothing."
