Post-match press conference
You mentioned earlier that such a game requires more investment and effort, but in the end it was solved by Rodrygo’s personal ability:
Yes, Rodrygo’s goal today was brilliant, the rest of the game, close, very intense, a lot of long balls, I can’t say much more.
We played a game today that we are not used to, but we achieved our goals.
Regarding Hazard’s performance today, he started the game but hardly performed, and was replaced early. What do you think?
I think it is difficult to evaluate the individual performance of each player, not only Real Madrid players, but all players in the game. Because of today’s conditions, it is almost impossible to play normally, all of them are long balls, small players, such as Ah
Zall or Rodrygo are more uncomfortable in such a game.
But these players have completed their tasks and done what they should do in the time they played today.
Have you ever worried that your team might be out?
No, not at all.
Although the long pass in the game affected the team’s strengths, we adapted to this difficulty and performed well.
Do you have any dissatisfaction with today’s game?
No, no, I feel very satisfied. Today we know that the game is such an environment and atmosphere, but we played well in normal games, and there is not much risk in the backcourt. I think we played well.
What do you think of the turf and pitch at Cáceres’ home ground today?
I don’t think this venue can play games normally. This is not football, but another sport. Of course, this sport is very good. Small teams can have a chance to upset, but fans also want to watch normal games.
If Real Madrid can win the Copa del Rey, what do you think is the motivation and confidence?
I think it is the strength of Real Madrid, Real Madrid can fight for the championship in any competition.
