"It’ll be very special to play in the Champions League because it’s special for Real Madrid. We have a special motivation and playing at the Bernabéu and listening to the anthem is also something special. The big goal is to win every game. That is the mentality to win every title, which is also a requirement at Real Madrid. We would like to win the Champions League again, but we have to give one hundred percent in each match to win every title. That is the key to success".
"We’re looking forward to the Club World Cup and are very excited because it may be the first title of the season. My teammates have told me about the difficulty of all the opponents".
"Vinicius is a star, as a football player and especially as a person, he’s just arrived and for him it’s all new, he comes from Brazil, a totally different style of football and culture and he’s adapting very well, I’m not going to point out the qualities of Vinicius because everyone knows the quality that he has, but he’s adapting very well".
"I have a great relationship with Carvajal and it’s something I have to thank him for, from the first moment and when we’ve been together he’s helped me, I’ve always said that he is an example for me and he’s my idol. Being able to learn from him every day is rewarding and he’s given me a lot of advice, I think competition is very good".
"Before coming, I really liked Karim and now I can say that I'm in love with him, I think he’s the best number nine in the world, it's a spectacle to train and play with him due to his movement and the way he plays with the ball. For me he’s the best, we’re seeing a change with him and he's taking that leadership position on".
VAR in the Champions League
"VAR is helpful, it's a very good tool to make football fairer, the referees are very professional, but like all human beings they make mistakes, helping them is good for their confidence and I'm happy that they can use VAR from the round of 16".
"I thank Lopetegui for many things. In his day he made some decisions that I respect and the only thing I have done is to work more and now I’m getting more minutes and I feel the confidence that Solari is giving me. I'm happy with this period".
"I have a lot of respect for a person like Cristiano, who has given a lot for this club but it’s already in the past. This is a family and what has surprised me the most is the humility of all my teammates and the hunger and hard work everyone puts in. We’re all united and fighting for this year’s objectives".
