Sami Khedira: "This season is not worthy of Real Madrid"

Sami Khedira has hit out at Real Madrid's performances this season and believes the club's results have failed to live up to what is expected of a club with the history of 'Los Blancos'.

The German midfielder told newspaper 'Sport Bild':

"Our season is not worthy of a club like Real Madrid. We cannot be happy with the season we are having. We haven't been able to find our rhythm since the start of the season, and there's not been a single period in which we've gone on a run away from home, which is where we have dropped so many points. This is not how things should be and we cannot be satisfied with ourselves."

Real Madrid are currently 13 points behind Barcelona in the league, but Khedira admits that retaining the title is not the number one goal for the club this season.

"In Madrid we have made one objective our priority, which is to win the Champions League," he said.

And he praised his compatriot Jürgen Klopp, the coach of Borussia Dortmund, the only team to have beaten Madrid in Europe this season.

"Klopp is a phenomenal coach," he declared.
