Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos: We deserve to be leaders

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos insists they deserve to be top of the table.

Ramos was speaking after their hard-fought win against Granada.

He said, "We can't let up, we haven't won anything yet and we've got to retain that hunger to win LaLiga. We're now a step closer, but there are still points to play for.

"Our destiny is in our own hands against Villarreal and we're going to try and win all of our remaining games, which was our target. Let's hope that we can celebrate winning this LaLiga title. The team really deserves to be up there and the results speak for themselves".

"You unconsciously make the mistake of letting your guard down and the intensity wanes after being in front and instead of going in search of that third goal, we perhaps settled for the result and if you don't retain your focus up for the 90 minutes, you won't beat anyone. We have to use this to make us think and continue to learn for the future. Although we got the win, there are errors that you simply can't make, like ending up conceding after having gone so many games without doing so."
