“We made a few mistakes as we lacked the mental energy for a match of this kind, near the end of the season. That mental energy is what we were lacking, but as far as I can see the team is not physically tired. Physically we're fine. It's difficult to recoup that energy, which is so important at this stage of the season, after playing in a Champions League semi-final”.

“We'll see how he is over the next few days. I don't think Cristiano Ronaldo's injury is that serious. He wasn't in pain and wasn't complaining of a muscle sprain. Pepe got a bad knock towards the end of the game so we'll have to see how he gets on. Di María should be fine though”.
