NEWS | 15/04/2017

"We gave everything”, said Marcelo. 
Isco was the stand out player in the victory against Sporting with his brace. The madridistra spoke after the game: "They made it difficult for us, we´ve not controlled the match as we would have liked. They`ve gone ahead twice, but this is the spirit of Real Madrid and we`ve come back again. It`s in the DNA of this shirt and of this badge and we have demonstrated it on numerous occasions and today we´ve done it once again. Until the referee blows for full time, we keep going".

"When I go out on to the field I try to do my best for the team. Today I was lucky to get the winning goal, I´m here to help my teammates when they need me. All the players who are waiting for their opportunities have to perform to the their best".
Staying at Real Madrid
"I`m at the best team in the world, there is no bigger team than Real Madrid and I feel lucky to be here. I want to stay here for a long time and I hope I do".

Marcelo: "The players who have come in have been phenomenal"
"There is never an easy match. We´ve not had much time to rest and we´ve given everything again in a very difficult game. The players who have come in today have been phenomenal and that is what makes the team great".

Demanding fixture list
"There is almost no time to rest. We are fine physically, and working hard, but there are a lot of difficult game to come and it´s normal that we get tired mentally. Isco has been very good and will be happy for the goals but more so because of the result. Everyone has fought until the end".

Kovacic: "We've got incredible spirit and we've claimed a very important win".

"It was a relief to score and get the three points, which is what we wanted and we have got them. Now we have to change our focus to Bayern and then we will think about Barcelona. We´re going game by game. Today the commitment from everyone has been very good and we must continue like this.

Kovacic: "Every game is like a cup final in our bid to win LaLiga"
"We faced a really tough game here last year as well. We've got incredible spirit and we've claimed a very important win. Each week is important and every game is like a cup final in our bid to win LaLiga. Isco put in a sensational performance, with two goals, but the whole team did a great job".

Nacho: "The team stood up and was counted"
"We're very happy because we knew that it was going to be tough and the three points were very important. The team is looking strong and went out in search of the win from the first whistle. We're not giving in and we stood up and were counted. We've now got Barcelona and the Champions League, which will be very tough matches".
Lucas Vázquez: "It was a hard-fought win"
"It was a very difficult game against opposition that always make things difficult for you on their own patch. They were very defensive in the way they set up and we struggled to create chances, but overall we dominated the game and did well. We have to be pleased with what was a very hard-fought win. If we keep this up we'll achieve our aim, which is to win LaLiga".
