"Zidane was delighted with the attitude and the way the team played," said the assistant coach.
David Bettoni appeared in the press room at the Mendizorroza stadium after Real Madrid's win over Alavés: "It was a deserved victory. We played very well from the start. We had the ball and dominated the game. We had to be very solid defensively, as Alavés are a team who play very well when the ball is turned over, they focus a lot and fight for the ball. I'm very pleased with the way the team played. For the changes, I wanted to know what the coach thought because he's the boss and the most important person in the team".
"Zidane was very delighted with the team's attitude and the way they played. I congratulated the players as he would have done. There's nothing special. Every game is a different story. I'm pleased to get the three points and for the team's performance. We're now going to rest and prepare for the match against Levante".
“The decision to replace Hazard with Vinicius Jr. was to offer us a more direct threat. He performed well for the 63 minutes he was out there. He's fine and bringing Vini on was just because we wanted to freshen things up. Eden has had a tough time of things with injuries over the past season and a half, but we've got to be patient with him”.
“It's true that in the world of football and at Real Madrid patience is hard to come by, but we’ve got great faith in Eden. He put in a great performance tonight and got an assist and a goal. We saw flashes of Hazard at his best tonight and we'll come to see that now in every game”.
