“There are a lot of excited supporters in Morocco and we have to respond to them”.
Emilio Butragueño, Real Madrid's director of Institutional Relations, was present at the draw for the Club World Cup, at the end of which he spoke about the Whites' aspirations in the tournament: “This is an important competition for us. It is a prestigious tournament. We have to be in good form and make a strong impression”.

“We have a lot of supporters in Morocco who are excited about our arrival and we have to respond to them. Things can be very even in football and the key will be seeing if we can bring our good form into this competition, avoid injuries and that the players are in peak condition. If we do all those things, we have a good chance of making it to the final and winning the championship”.

“This competition has thrown up some surprises over the last few years. We will see what opponent we are faced with and prepare well for the match. San Lorenzo and ourselves look like the favourites but we have to be very careful. The week beforehand we will play our sixth Champions League game and right before the Club World Cup we face Almería. The schedule is very demanding”.
