“There were things that made us happy and we move on”, he added.
Julen Lopetegui spoke to the press at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami speaking about Real Madrid's first pre-season game: “The team had character and showed positives. There were no injuries and in general the team had an acceptable game. There were things that made us happy and we move on”.

“We all want to win all the time, but the key thing was not the result. In this preparation phase, we want to consolidate concepts. For them it was their fifth game and for us just our first. We handled the game well, they had two good shots on goal."

The squad
"I am delighted with the team I have here. We have the challenge of reinventing the team without a player such as Cristiano Ronaldo. I want to make this team even better than before”.

We want to have a good, united side.

"We have a squad chock full of excellent players, including Bale, and we want to have a good, united side."

Vinicius
"He played a good game. He has gone from less to more, just like the rest of the team. He started a little shy, but then he came on in leaps and bounds. He is very young and has to adapt to this style of football and what we ask of players. I thought he played a good game."

Courtois
"At no time am I going to talk about players who are not at Real Madrid. I am thrilled with these goalkeepers that I have and I will not talk about players who are not part of this team."
