NEWS | 19/08/2018Asensio: "We have a great team, we’re working well and that was shown out on the field".
"We're really looking forward to the season ahead. Our target, just like every year, is to win all of the competitions we're involved in and we'll be giving our all to do just that. The new signings have adjusted really quickly. We've given them a good welcome and I hope that they're all available in the near future".
Asensio: "We put in a complete performance"
"It was important for us to get off to a good start and we come away feeling happy with our performance. We put in a complete performance and this is the way we’ll have to play to go far in the league".
"We had to quickly move on from the Super Cup. This is another competition and we’re very excited about this season. We had a great game and now we’re switching our attention to the next match. We have a great team, we’re working well and that was shown out on the field".
Nacho: "We controlled the game"
"We’re happy with the win. We wanted to start well and we went out looking for the win from the off. The team was switched on and put in a serious performance. We wanted to win and start well in front of our fans. We’re an ambitious team and we always look for more. We controlled the match and we’re very happy with the game. We must continue and play with this confidence".
"Defending and trying to help us keep a clean sheet is my job. As a team, we put in a very disciplined display, particularly at the back. It's crucial that we keep clean sheets, because we know that we're going to get our chances at the other end. We're really firing on all cylinders. We've got a fantastic squad and are feeling really confident".
"I'm delighted for Carvajal. As for Bale, it's not a question of him following in Ronaldo's wake. Cristiano left his mark on a whole era here. Bale is a really key player for us and he's won many trophies here and has nothing to prove to anyone. Everyone knows they can count on him and I'm sure that he'll continue to perform well. The fans are fully behind Bale and he's very happy at Real Madrid. We've got some fantastic strikers here".
