Keylor Navas
"I’ve got a lot of respect for him. He’s won three Champions Leagues in a row with Real Madrid. This is the level of competition that there is at this club. It's not good to be on the bench but he’s working well, we both train hard. It is always good to play and it’s the coach who decides who plays. I felt good since the first day. I try to help the team and work every day to improve".

Reguilón: "An unforgettable experience"
"I've dreamed of winning this trophy, it's big title in football and having it in the trophy cabinet is amazing, belonging to this group is the best thing that can happen to a football player.
