“In the second half we maintained our desire to score goals”, said Ramos.
Real Madrid thrashed Deportivo at the Riazor in a match that Arbeloa described in this way: “We should be happy. You're seeing a Real Madrid that is improving and more in tune, which is what we wanted. To do well we have to be at our best. We're building momentum and an improvement can be seen. That's what the manager wants".

"Today we scored eight goals; it's a lot and you can't do something like that every day because it's too many, but the team's going in the right direction”.

“Iker has been at Real Madrid for many years now. He seems relaxed, working hard and training well".

Right back
“The important thing for the team is that we all help each other. It doesn't matter who plays at full back”.

Ramos: “We were very clinical”
“It was difficult at first, but the team was very clear about what it wanted to do and we applied a lot of pressure and intensity. We were very clinical, winning the ball back and keeping possession. In the second half we maintained the intensity and the desire to score goals”.

When the team plays well and the ball goes in everything's much easier.

“The changes are the results. In football you go through periods that are not as good as what Real Madrid is accustomed to, but you can't complain and you have to change the situation. The team has been scoring well since the last Champions League game. Now we have to maintain it in all competitions”.

Positive dynamics
“Victories are always good for morale because they keep picking you up for the next matches. We're very happy with today's result after a few difficult games".

Goals from new signings
“I'm really happy with the goals they've been scoring, particularly in today's game. I hope they keep it going because they're very useful”.
