Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho were both keen to remain upbeat after Real Madrid suffered a potentially damaging defeat to Osasuna on Sunday evening.

Javier Camunas’ second-half winner condemned Real to a loss that sees them now seven points behind Barcelona at the top of La Liga. With their titles hopes suffering a severe setback, Mourinho and Ronaldo both faced the media after the match and attempted to maintain a positive outlook.

"I know winning the league just got a lot more difficult, but it's still possible,” Ronaldo said. “This was very disappointing, but we must stay positive and continue battling.

"We didn't play well, but we tried our best and we fought hard. Osasuna played their game by advancing with deep balls forward and hoping the match would end. They shot once and scored. They were lucky.

"I was very, very disappointed with the atmosphere. Battlefields are not acceptable in football. It isn't good that children see such a spectacle on television. They threw balls and lighters onto the pitch. I hope they get fined. What happens when they hit someone on the head like what happened to Iker the other day? It is unacceptable, especially to those who like football."


With Ronaldo and Adebayor up front, Real Madrid can finally beat Barcelona! Casillas, Kaka and Ramos are absolutely immense!

Top teams that should be at the World Cup:France, Germany, Italy, Serbia, Uruguay

Rubbish teams that shouldn't: Australia, Chile, Ghana, Honduras, New Zealand, Nigeria, Paraguay, Slovakia, Switzerland

How did Russia end up with the World Cup. You would have thought the England bid was the best, closely followed by the Spain one. But Russia? Seriously!?

Do any of you guys seriously believe that Liverpool, Tottenham or Man City can topple Man Utd and take the Premier League trophy? Even if Liverpool had Kuyt and Mascherano back I can't see it!

Can someone please explian to me what is the point of Walcott, especially when we have just sold someone like Eduardo. Does Arsene Wenger have any idea what he is doing?! If I could go back to the days of Anelka, I totally would!

Are Barry and Given some of the most under-rated footballers ever? If they werer playing at Man Utd instead of City then they would be getting comapred to the Ronaldo's of this world. As it is, its like they play Soccer like a bunch of donkeys. Add Friedel to the under-rated list too!

What is is with Chelsea these days - they never seem to give youth a chance? Yes we have youngsters like McEachran and Kalou coming through slowly, but when are we goping to replace the 30-somthings - the likes of Cole, Carvalho, Ballack, Malouda, Bosingwa and Ferreira???

Did you see the goals that Saha scored? Golacccccciooooo! Love it when you Bet on football and it all comes off :) Buying some new Soccer Boots with my winnings :)

My favourite team is Arsenal. With Fabregas, Arshavin, Nasri and van Persie we have the makings of an amazing team.

Here is my 'Bright Future XI'. Cech is in nets - hes not THAT young, but still got about 10 years left at the top! Ivanovic, Ramsey, Kompany and Young would be in defence. Milner, obi Mikel, Aquilani and Tevez in midfield. Santo and Sturridge would be a class front two.

My dream Man United XI would be Foster in nets, with Gallas, Gibbs, Clichy and Vermaelen in defence. Fletcher would lead a midfield made up of Essien, Babel and Cole, with youngsters Welbeck and Macheda up front. How awesome a team would that be?!

Are Newcastle fans supposed to support Celtic or Rangers? AC or Inter? Its difficult to tell!
