Varane urges Real Madrid fans not to panic

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane insists there's no reason for panic after their 2-2 draw with Las Palmas.

The Frenchman, who is still the third centre-back behind Pepe and Sergio Ramos, insisted the LaLiga season is a long-distance race.

"We're disappointed in dropping two points, but the adjustments Real Madrid must make are minor," Varane said. "We are still at the top of the table and the season is very long.

"Real Madrid had the match under control until we conceded the second goal."

The 23-year-old urged the fans not to be concerned about the consecutive draws against Villarreal and Las Palmas.

"Alarms should not go off [based on the last two matches]."
