“Bale has a great attitude and is working really well”, said the manager.
Carlo Ancelotti evaluated his team's opening game against Inter Milan. The Italian manager seemed to be satisfied with his side's display during the first 45 minutes: “We played very well in attack during the first half, we dominated the game and had fresh legs. It was a very intense match with a lot of strong tackling”.

“I am satisfied with how the younger players performed because some of them showed some real character. We are working day-to-day and today I gave minutes to those that needed them”.

"He is working well and has a great attitude. He will improve and this will be a very different campaign for him, especially in terms of the start of the seasons, as he didn't have a pre-season last year”.

James Rodríguez
"He will join us on 1 August. He is a very young player and his signing is an investment for the club's future".

I am satisfied with how the younger players performed.

“We are very happy about the support we are getting from the fans. It is great for the team and it is nice to play these kinds of games in front of crowds like this. It is good to know that we have fans like these all over the world”.

Di María
"I don't have any news. There are no updates from the market. Di María is resting after the World Cup. He will return on 5 August to train with the rest of his teammates".

The central forward
"Benzema is very reliable and we can also use players like Isco, who can act as a false nine. We are not looking for another striker because we don't need one".

Pre-season in the USA
"There are good facilities here and being able to train is not a problem. It is the ideal place to do pre-season".
