NEWS | 12/09/2015 | Alberto Navarro (Barcelona) | PHOTOGRAPHER: Antonio Villalba“We played very well, we have to continue like this”, said Modric.
“When the goals come quickly it fills you with confidence and that helps the team control games better. Now we need to focus on the Champions League and fingers crossed we'll be able to hang onto this level of confidence to win”.
“He's incredible. We all know full well that he's the best player in the world and we're delighted to have him on our team”.
Modric: “We played really well”
“We got off the mark quickly and that made things easier for us. We played really well. We're very happy to not have conceded and to have scored so many goals. We have to continue playing like that”.
“The manager wants to give everyone a run out, especially in games like today's when things are going well for us. The most important thing is the team, it doesn't matter which of us are rested”.
“He's a great player. He has bags of talent and quality. He did very well today when he came on".
"He needs to keep working but I'm sure he is going to enjoy a lot of success with Real Madrid”.
Pepe: “Cristiano played a fantastic game”
“Just like we did against Betis, today we put in a great performance, created loads of chances and pressed the opposition well. To add to that we have Cristiano, who is just incredible. He played a fantastic game and deserves all the plaudits. Managing to keep a cleansheet over three games is the work of the whole team and it is important that the results of that work are reflected on the pitch. It is a great credit to the defenders as well as the forward players”.
“Things didn't go that well for us against Sporting Gijon, although that was also down to them being extremely eager and giving us a tough game. Things went better for us against Betis, just as they did today, and bit by bit we are getting into our stride, which is what the manager has been asking of us”.
Casemiro: “We have a very good squad”
“I'm here to play and to help the squad. All 23 of us are extremely important players in terms of the squad and we know we have to be ready to play at a moment's notice, which is something the manager is always telling us. Last year I wasn't able to be here but this year's squad is excellent. We're molding ourselves into the manager's vision. We're on the right track".
“We won today and know we have to focus on the Champions League and our upcoming game against Shakhtar”.
