NEWS | 11/12/2018 | Alberto Navarro | PHOTOGRAPHER: Víctor Carretero“The evaluation is made at the end of the season, now we’re in the moment, concentrating on each match and specifically on the CSKA game”, added the coach.
"I'm excited by the chance of winning LaLiga and the Champions League. And also the Copa del Rey and the Club World Cup. I like them all and we should aspire to winning everything. We’re alive in every competition and with the opportunity to achieve our objectives. I hope it remains this way until the end of the season".
Objectives as a coach
"The evaluation is made at the end of the season, now we’re in the moment, concentrating on each match and specifically tomorrow’s Champions League game".
"We try to give our all in every game, but we play a lot of games with very little time between each one. It’s difficult to get the same level of energy from everyone, but we work on it. There isn’t much time to recover and that is added to by the international commitments. That is the test and the nice challenge we have: to be at our best mental levels and keep the levels of concentration up going in to each challenge".
"Humility is a virtue of the great players and during the history of Real Madrid, the club has always been great and humble in all values of sport. That's why this team has won so many things. Cristiano Ronaldo is living history of Real Madrid and his feelings are his, they belong to him".
Physical problems of some players
"We work intensively with the coaching staff, the doctors and the players so that we have the most players available for each match".
"I’d like to be able to count on him soon. The most important thing is that when he returns, he’s right, and we don’t lose him again. It’s what the coaches, the doctors and the fans want. It’s not of any help to us to play a game and then not be able to play the next".
Praise for Vinicius Jr.
"I can’t tell you if he’ll start, but he has exceeded expectations. He’s very young and has the future ahead of him. He has already made his debut in all competitions and these last few months have passed very fast for him. We’re all very happy with him".
"I’m very happy with what he does in every training session and what he does in each match. I don’t know what can happen with him or with anyone else".
"In every game we do what is necessary and possible to win the game".
