NEWS | 17/02/2019 | Javier Vázquez | PHOTOGRAPHER: Antonio Villalba"We had been on a great run, cutting the gap, and we have to keep fighting hard", said the Real Madrid coach.
“LaLiga isn't over, absolutely not. We'll keep fighting on all three fronts still open to us. Every game is difficult, it doesn't matter who you're up against, that's been shown here today. Girona were very well disciplined and we have to keep working hard to try and win games”.
“You will always get teams who turn up for these games, they were great today in the first half despite our dominance, before coming out with real energy in the second half, putting the pressure on and attacking well. We lacked a bit of a clinical edge to get in behind more and find another goal”.
“It wears you down physically and mentally, wears down your concentration… there are a lot of factors. We have had a lot of tough games that we had to get through, and perhaps that took its toll on us in the second half”.
Ramos red card
“It’s part of the game”.
“I thought he did well”.
Would you change anything about the subs?
These are impossible questions. Hypothetical situations, whether past or future, are not something we can address. We make decisions and try our best, sometimes we don’t get the result we want”.
