Real Madrid midfielder, Casemiro has blamed Los Blancos’ players for their 5-1 El Clasico defeat by Barcelona in the La Liga fixture played on Sunday at the Camp Nou.
Goals from Luiz Suarez (3), Philippe Coutinho (1) and Arturo Vidal (1) ensured victory for the Catalan club at the Camp Nou.
Casemiro said Madrid players were responsible for their humiliating defeat by the Catalan club, not their manager, Julen Lopetegui.
”To talk about the coach now, we cannot do that,” Daily Star quoted Casemiro as saying at post-match.
“It is the players who are out on the pitch. We are responsible, the players, for what is happening at Real Madrid.
“We are not playing well, and must work harder, as this club requires the best, always.”
Casemiro added: “This 5-1 sums up our season so far. We have played well in some spell.
“But that is this season – we are a disaster, all playing very bad, all of us.”
The result leaves Madrid ninth in La Liga while their run of three-straight defeats is their worst in the league since 2009.
