Sergio Ramos has assured the Real Madrid fans that the players are "hurting" in the midst of a disappointing La Liga campaign.
They are also seven points behind local rivals Atletico Madrid, who occupy second place and are leading the chase on Barcelona.
"All Madridistas are hurting," Ramos posted on his Twitter account. "Especially us players.
"But we will not compromise the club or the fans. Hala Madrid."
Real play Sevilla at the Bernabeu next Saturday.
