NEWS | 09/04/2016 | Bárbara Jiménez“We have to fight for the badge and for the fans who come and support us”, said Nacho.
“I would tell the fans to come to the stadium. All together, working for the same goal, we'll progress in the tie. It doesn't help to talk the game up. We must think about what we're playing for, know what we have to do and see if we can manage it. I focus on my work, the coach decides, and I'm there for whatever he thinks is best.”.
“Danilo is a consummate professional. He knows what the fans say goes, and that he's now got to work as hard as anyone. The fans are entitled to their opinions, we are professionals and we respect what they have to say”.
Nacho: “We gave a good account of ourselves”
“This is a good way to head into Tuesday's game, especially after our first half performance. It was good, we gave a good account of ourselves and scored goals, which was important. We had to win the game today and put pressure on those ahead of us. It was our duty. La Liga isn't in our hands, but that doesn't mean we won't keep the pressure on”.
“We know Tuesday has to be our day. We have to fight for the badge and for the fans who come and support us. In every match we play at the Bernabéu we hope that the fans are proud of us. We know the importance of the next clash, the fans will be with us and we'll give it our all”.
“We don’t need to ask anything of the fans. We know that they will be there for us, because they always are, and they will cheer us on like never before. Things have become complicated but if we can get through it will make it even sweeter. Wolfsburg are not doing well in their league, but we knew that they were a good team and can do damage up front”.
Support from the stands
"I always feel really well supported when I play at the Bernabéu and I am grateful to the fans. They always applaud me and hopefully they’ll continue to do so. The knock that I picked up wasn’t anything serious, a sprain, but everything is ok”.
Kovacic: “It was an important victory before Tuesday”
"It was an important victory, because we had to win and it is a good result ahead of Tuesday’s game. We will go into it with our confidence sky high. We are playing good football and the other day we could also have won, but that’s how football is and I think we will win on Tuesday”.
Confidence in the comeback
“We have to analyse the game against Wolfsburg closely and improve a few aspects. We are hoping for huge support from the fans. They are really important to us, they are our fans and we hope to play a great game. It won’t be easy but we will make it to the semi-finals”.
