Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has come in for heavy criticism this season, has commented on Los Blancos' poor LaLiga form.
The Spanish giants are currently 19 points behind league leaders FC Barcelona, but Ronaldo feels that Real must not give up hope of challenging for the title.
"If we can win the Champions League at the end of the year, it will be an incredible year," he told Chinese outlet Doonqiudi at Valdebebas.
"We haven't started well in LaLiga and we are disappointed, nobody is happy about that. But now we must work hard for the Champions League because it's the most important trophy for us.
"It will be difficult in LaLiga, but we can't give up, even if we have dropped many points since the start of the season. We have to keep working."
Ronaldo has scored just six league goals in 15 games, and has hit the back of the net 18 times in 25 matches across all competitions.
