NEWS | 01/03/2017“We always give our best and ultimately managed to get a point”, commented Marcelo.
“We need to improve, things are not going well and we have less and less margin for error. We have to value every point we can snatch in LaLiga because it is a real scrap”.
“Tomorrow we will assess each play and look at how to glean something positive from this. We must be strong and we'll try to stay positive and get three from three from now on”.
“I have apologised but in games like this you're going at light speed and you don't take much notice of things”.
“I don't want to talk about the referees. Sometimes they blow in your favour and other times they don't. We also had chances to win the game and it didn't happen for us. We have a game in hand, a LaLiga title to play for and at Real Madrid don't give up without a fight, we have nine lives like a cat”.
"I trust Keylor all the way, it's the same whenever Kiko has played and Rubén too. You have to support every player, it's the only way to have any chance of success. Pointing the finger isn't the right thing to do, you perform much better when you feel loved".
Marcelo: “Between us we were able to snatch a draw”
"Once again, it was a very difficult game. Las Palmas have some fine players, they're good on the ball and we tried to press them, but we didn't manage to do that; we tried to drop deeper but that didn't work either. With everyone pitching in we ultimately managed to get a point".
"I believe that we have to improve on a lot of things, but we continue to always stand up and be counted. We're not doing the things that we should be and that's why we've experienced what we have of late".
“It’s not up to me to tell him what is what. Bale is old enough to know if he made an error or not. We are completely with him; these things happen in football and hopefully it won’t happen again between now and the end of the season”.
Nacho: “The team's reaction was great”
“Las Palmas play some great football and the team's reaction was great, we did something difficult. We made life easy for them and the sending off changed the game. Having said that, we are satisfied with the point, but we needed three and didn't get them”.
Situation in LaLiga
"At this club, you're under pressure right from the start of the LaLiga season. Even when we were well ahead of Barcelona we didn't think that we'd won LaLiga. Our destiny is still in our own hands, which is the main thing and on Saturday we face a very tough game, which we want to win, whilst giving a good account of ourselves".
