“I am proud of this team's unbridled will to compete, their commitment to the club and what these colours mean”, explained the coach.
Santiago Solari spoke to the press at Real Madrid City regarding the Copa del Rey last-16 return leg tie that sees the Whites face Leganés at Butarque (9:30pm CET): “We shouldn't focus on the lead we have over Leganés, we need to remain focussed and try to kill the tie off from the first minute. They are a disciplined side. They are driven, and are a real force at home”.

“I am proud of this team's unbridled will to compete, their commitment to the club and what these colours mean, especially given how many years they have gone on winning titles. The will to come in and train and go into the next game with that same drive is great”.

Youth team's role
“Young players sometimes bring that speed, vitality and freshness, and that is bolstered by the maturity and experience that the older players have. They are always helped along by the support other players give them. Obviously they are here on their own merit. The other day we had a lot of players under 20 who ended up getting minutes, but they will always be helped along by those with experience”.

System of play
“Every game has set circumstances because of the rival and their characteristics. There is something new in each match and we make decisions based around what is going on around us".

Signings
“I'm not going to get into the transfer policy. The squad is what we have here at the moment, we have a mix of youth and experience and they are all committed”.

Vinicius
“He is very talented and he shows it when he needs to in games, whether home or away. Having come in just this season and doing what he has done, it is commendable, we all need to look out for him”.
