These were the words of the Madridistas at the end of the match against Villarreal.
“The feeling out on the field was good. We did a lot of positive things, had the ball and created chances. We can’t afford the opposition so many chances because they went and scored twice, but the team is going in the right direction to achieve our objectives, which are to win every match. We tried to win the match but only got one point, we’re not very happy, but we must continue working had. We’re in Matchday three, we have to improve our finishing and the defensive phase. The team needs to get up to speed with the competition and correct the mistakes we have been making.”
“We had control and created opportunities, but with this jersey you are required to win. It’s what Real Madrid is about. We know it’s a difficult place to come. We had control of the game, for maybe 75 minutes. They had the two chances and scored two goals. We battled on until the end and have to keep doing so. It’s a point and we have to keep putting points on the board. We now have the chance to work and change our mentality during the international break.
“We lacked that cutting edge and have to improve defensively. We have to work as a team. When we defend, we all have to defend and when we attack, we all have to attack together. There’s a strong group spirit here and I’m sure that’ll serve us well in LaLiga.”
“Overall, the team performed well. The only thing missing was the main thing in football, the result. We’ll keep working until the results come. The Levante game is a chance for us to win at home, in front of our fans, and we’re raring to start our preparations for that one.”
