The Madrid midfielder thinks that the problem for Madrid is not the officiating or the VAR but the lack of form the players are in at the moment.
The Los Blancos captain Sergio Ramos had blamed referee Jose Munuera and the VAR officials for their 2-0 loss to Real Sociedad at home on Sunday.
“The referee played a big role in things,” said Ramos in the post-match interview.

“I’ve always defended the VAR system, but it has to be improved because what we’ve seen was scandalous.
“He could have awarded the penalty and then consulted the VAR. After seeing the penalty incidents in the dressing room, all we ask for is fairness.
“There are times when we’re punished for our behaviour on the pitch and the referees’ committee should do the same with the officials. The VAR is in place but you’ve got to know how to use it and consult it.
“We’re motivated and fighting for a La Liga title that’ll be tough and it’s made all the more difficult when things like this happen.”
In contrast to Ramos’ strong statements following the defeat at the Bernabeu, Luka Modric said that the blame for the loss and lack of points for the team is no one else’s but the players themselves.
The Croatian explained to Marca what is going wrong for the current champions of Europe who are now in fifth place in La Liga and 10 points behind their eternal rivals Barcelona
“He (Munuera) has not had a good day,” said the Croatian initially.
“But our problem is not the referee or VAR, although they haven’t helped us.”Our problems are other things.”
“Many of us are not at our level.
“We cannot take a s*** at the beginning of every game.
“We have to be clear, it’s not a matter of luck. We are creating a lot but the ball won’t go in and we are giving a lot but there are reasons that explain why things are not going well.”
