The defending European Champions were booed off by their own supporters after losing 4-3 at home to Schalke on Tuesday, despite progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals 5-4 on aggregate.

Their domestic form has also been poor. That result followed a 1-1 home draw with Villarreal and a 1-0 defeat at Athletic Bilbao, as well as a cup exit at the hands of neighbours Atletico Madrid.

However Raul, who was quoted by Goal.com, believes they will recover. He said: “The seasons last 10 months. Two months ago Real Madrid had won 22 straight games and everyone spoke about how great they were.

“Now the team has suffered a couple of defeats, which are always painful for a club like Madrid, but both the players and the coaching staff have the quality to get out of this situation.

“I give my full support for Real Madrid now more than ever, fully aware that players are going to give everything they have to improve.”
