Giving their best
“The fans can do what they want but whistling doesn't help anyone. No one deserves to be whistled when they've given their all but this is Real Madrid and you always have to keep giving. In LaLiga we dropped four points in the last two games and we have to get the win at Anoeta”.

Cristiano and Bale
"Speaking of Cristiano is very easy, we know that he’s the best in the world. We’re happy having him back and he looks strong. With his ability we always want to have him available. You can see that Bale is working, he wants to score goals and he’s fighting to always help Real Madrid".
