Arbeloa: Players Are Responsible

Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa has lashed out at the entire team, saying that they should have taken more responsibility.

The former Liverpool defender said that outgoing coach Jose Mourinho often took stick for the sake of the club, and he feels that the players should feel responsible for his sacking.

"The responsibility is everyone's," the 30-year-old told reporters. "We lacked maturity in difficult situations.

"Mourinho has always put Real Madrid ahead of him. He often damaged his image for the sake of this club, but the players cannot say the same. Starting with me, I look first for myself, then the club, like many others.

"It's a shame we could not have won more titles. Mourinho has won wherever he has been and with perhaps the best squad he has lead, won the fewest things.

"We lost hope of catching Barcelona after the set-backs of the first month. By September we never believed we could win, with the gap being so many points. It was a shame not to have fought till the end.

"I think it has been a turbulent season, especially at the end. There were many who did not agree with the coach and while that was respectable, we should have put the fans first in these three years."
