Real Madrid's Florentino Perez feels that his side are 'on the right track' despite Clasico defeat to Barcelona

Regardless of the 3-1 loss against their arch enemies last Saturday, the construction mogul believes Jose Mourinho's men are making progress in their search for glory
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is of the opinion that his side are on the right track, despite losing to Barcelona in the Clasico last weekend.

Jose Mourinho's men took the lead in the first minute of the game at the Santiago Bernabeu, but were ultimately pegged back by their arch rivals, falling to a demoralising 1-3 defeat.

Regardless of the Catalans returning to the top of La Liga with the victory, the 64-year-old believes the club is progressing.

"We are on the right track," Perez told the media in a meeting to celebrate the commitment of the club's long-term commercial partners.

"We have launched a football project that has won the Copa del Rey in the best ever final [in 2010/11], but we want more wins."

The Spanish businessman also thanked all the outfit's financial allies stating that their help is imperative to the team's success, and had a word to the supporters.

"It's exciting for many generations of Real Madrid supporters to stand together. This symbolises loyalty to the club; this is our main strength," he concluded.

Jose Mourinho's men face a tricky away game against Sevilla on Saturday, and will look to return to the summit of the Primera Division with a positive result.
