“Bale underwent tests this morning. Everything went to plan, he has recovered from the knock and played without incurring any further problems. I took Karim off in order to have four midfielders on the pitch so we could defend more easily”.
“Rayo play a very attractive and courageous brand of football. Their manager is doing a great job”.
Comparing Rayo and Atlético
“They are two different teams. Rayo build their play up from the back so we pressured them high up the pitch. That plan worked very well in the second half. Atlético don't play the ball from the back, they play a lot of long balls so we will have to use different tactics against them”.
What he said to the referee
