"We started well, with intensity. We pressured in attack and did not let them out of their half. We lacked luck, we worked well and we are assimilating what Zidane wants us to. The most important thing is that we worked like a team and showed character. That is what we have to take away for the upcoming games. We are improving and gradually taking the manager's ideas on board in terms of fitness".
“He did really well, and helped our attacking game. Everyone here is a good player with the quality to play. We have to give everything and work as a team".
“It is tough. We know that it is very difficult and we have to keep working and battling. We also have to recognise the mertis of the sides that we play against".
James: “We did things well"
“We did things well today, we were intense and attacked. I tried to score but was unable to. It is necessary to be calm, when the ball doesn't want to go in, it doesn't go in".
“I think that the change has been good and we are all doing well with him, everyone listens more to the new manager. Zidane is the one in charge and I have to pay attention to him. I have a good relationship with him, we have talked a lot and everything is fine".
Navas: “In the second half we moved the ball around quicker"
“We cannot be happy without the win. It is necessary to be aware that we have to win. The team worked and tried to get a result from the game. In the second half we worked really well but they also defended well and had a move in the first half that they were able to make the most of".
Modric and James
“Modric always helps us a lot, in each game he shows why he is at Real Madrid and the quality he has. We are happy with his performance. James has the support of all the team, he makes a lot of effort. He is working really well in training and he did really well in the game".
