Madrid: Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has admitted that everyone at the club has become "a little obsessed" with `La Decima`.

Los Blancos have been crowned champions of Europe a record nine times but they have not lifted the most prestigious prize in club football since 2002.

Consequently, winning a tenth title is beginning to weigh heavy on Madrid minds, as Perez freely admits.

"All Madridistas want to win titles," he stated in a message to the club`s members and followers. "Maybe we`re a little obsessed with La Decima but that is because it is the title we want the most."

The Spanish giants, who were eliminated at the semi-final stage of last season`s Champions League by Borussia Dortmund, cruised through to the knockout stages of this year`s tournament.
