"We really like being here. The people are really nice. We have to do everything that the coach asks of us in training and be prepared for a tough match. Things are going well and we have to carry on in this vein".
Working with Benítez
"Every coach has their own approach and all the team are working hard to take on board what he asks of us in every training session, so that we're in good shape when the competitive games come around. The coach wants the whole team to work really hard, and that's what we looked to do against Manchester City".
"I'm very happy playing and training at this club each and every day. My contract renewal is a matter for my agent and the president. I have to do my job well throughout the year and I hope that all together we can win many trophies this season".
The atmosphere in the dressing room
"We're very happy, working hard and doing everything the coach asks of us to come into the season in good shape and firing on all cylinders. We want to get ourselves up to speed as soon as possible".
"He looks fine to me. Him not being here is something that doesn't enter any Madridista's head. He's our captain and I'm sure that he's going to stay here because he really loves this club and the club loves him. I hope he stays, because he's a leader at Real Madrid".
