"Football puts obstacles in front of you when you least expect it, but I'm now in top condition and feel confident. We have some very important games coming up and we have to be at one hundred percent".
"Modric is the one who deserves the prize. He has won the Champions League, he has taken Croatia to the World Cup final, he is a World Cup runner-up and everybody knows, we´re in love with the way he plays and therefore he’s the one who deserves the prize".
"I see him training every day and playing, and I'm surprised because he's a great player who does things that other players don’t do. He's not only a marvellous player but also a top person".
Debut on Saturday
"Yes, it would be special. In any stadium and against any team it’s special to make your debut for Real Madrid. I'm ready for that opportunity, I've taken advantage of the break to get up to pace and go in to these matches and I'm ready to make my debut as soon as possible".
"I’ve settled in very quickly. I knew a lot of players from the national team who have been my teammates, in the dressing room we’re a family and everybody treats you very well. Now it's time to get ready to play and start the good stuff, playing football".
"I already knew him from the under-21s. I said back in the day that he’s going to be one of the best players in the history of Spanish football and he’s showing this. He has amazing quality and I predict a great season for him".
"The national team have started a new period and yesterday I enjoyed watching them like a kid. We’re going to work to get back together with them. That fact is there are so many Real Madrid players in the national team, that show the hard work that the club has been doing lately. Yesterday there were a lot of my teammates involved I was very proud to be there and fight with them. The fact that there are Spanish players at a club like Real Madrid is very good".
