We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Zinedine Zidane is associated, including Madrid and Bernabeu. Most recently, Zinedine Zidane has been quoted saying: “I want this squad as it is. I love it and hopefully there is no change, but you know that until the 31st everything can happen. I'm happy for Nacho. I'm happy because he's always one who does [perform], who is very focused, also when he doesn't play, because he thinks he can play. In the first three official matches, he did not play much and suddenly he plays and does very well. I'm glad he doesn't change.” in the article Zidane wants no more changes to Real Madrid squad.

Aug 16 2017

The players are hungry to win it all.feedback

Aug 15 2017

I'm not going to have a go at the referee but when you see what happened. Anyway, we're waiting for the appeal committee's decision. But to think that Cristiano's not going to be with us for five matches,… something's happened and I'm very annoyed.feedback

Aug 15 2017

It's a long season with a lot of work to be done and we're only interested in the day-to-day things.feedback

Aug 15 2017

Of course, anything can happen. Nothing is ever definite. We have a second leg and have to play very well. Barcelona are a great side who can score against you and put you into difficulties at any time. I'm going to say the same again – until the 31st, anything can happen. I don't know, I don't control this.feedback

Aug 15 2017

We competed well with great personality and that comes from the work we did on the tour. The results in the friendlies weren't good, but the content of the work that we did was.feedback

Aug 15 2017

All I can tell you is I'm happy with the players I've got.feedback

Aug 15 2017

I'm very happy with the squad I have. I think they're all going to stay.feedback

Aug 15 2017 - UEFA

When we were on the tour we said we were preparing to compete on August 8 [the date of the UEFA Super Cup] and when we did we played well.feedback

Aug 15 2017

In the first game they've had chances. We have to play a good game. We played a great game in the first game. We're going to have to do the same to win.feedback

Aug 14 2017

We played a great game but I am annoyed by Cristiano's sending-off. Perhaps it wasn't a penalty but the red card is a little harsh. We can't change it, but we'll try and make sure he plays on Wednesday.feedback

Aug 13 2017

With 10 men we fought and we believed in the victory right to the end. This, though, was only one game and now there is the return leg. We are happy with the result, but the tie is not decided and we have to play on Wednesday. We'll enjoy tonight and then from tomorrow we'll start working towards Wednesday. When he signed for Real Madrid I was close to the team and I saw him training and he needed time and to play regularly. It doesn't surprise me that he's making a difference, he makes the team play and it's difficult to get the ball off him.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I'm glad for him because he's growing. We must continue like this. We've only just started.feedback

Aug 13 2017

We're happy with him and with everyone. It's not easy to come on like that for 15 minutes. He came on and was quickly in to the match and made the difference. Isco, [Mateo] Kovacic and everyone else had a great game. We must emphasise the team performance.feedback

Aug 12 2017

I'm very happy to have the confidence Real Madrid shows in me. I'm happy to be working so well with my staff. And the objectives are always the same: trying to win every single game and every single title. We are enjoying our job a lot.feedback

Aug 12 2017

My story with Real Madrid is deeper than contracts and signatures. I'm happy to be linked with the club. But the contract doesn't mean anything. You can sign for 10-20 years. I know where I am and what to do. In one year, maybe I won't be here. Real Madrid and I are not going to argue, never.feedback

Aug 09 2017

Clearly the club wants him and he wants the club – game over even before it started – everybody knows he is going to stay.feedback

Aug 09 2017 - Manchester United

What's important is the player is feeling well. What's important for us is not what Mourinho said.feedback

Aug 09 2017

Key to winning this game was two things we do well. We hold and control well, and we finish our chances at the right moment. The second half was not great, but the first half was spectacular. We have talented players who want to win every challenge.feedback

Aug 08 2017

We are here: him, me and all the other players, and all the fans are here for tomorrow's match only. That's it.feedback

Aug 08 2017

We know that every game will be more difficult and we'll come up against very good opposition throughout the season.feedback

Aug 08 2017

There were great celebrations in the dressing room, that's normal, we never get tired of winning. We controlled things where they are very strong, such as second balls, the high balls. We pressed high and didn't allow them to play. We made it count with the ball and stayed calm. The team's overall commitment is crucial as well.feedback

Aug 08 2017

We want to give it our all and we've got the ambition to do better and better. Today was no comparison with the pre-season games. We were on it from the first minute to the last.feedback

Aug 07 2017

What's important for us is not what Mourinho said, it is what we are going to do tomorrow.feedback

Aug 07 2017

Bale is a Madrid player. That is all I can say. What I want to talk to you about now is an important match. Him, me, all the players and the fans are here for the match. That is all I can say.feedback

Aug 07 2017

What's important is the player is feeling well. He has had a lot of continued training sessions with us and that is what is the most important. The end of last season was not easy for him because he was injured,. But now I see him very well, very concentrated.feedback

Aug 07 2017

What interests me in the long run is that he is fit. As for the rest, there is not much we can do about it. The fact he is with us means a lot because it means he is ready to play. We will see whether he plays or not.feedback

Aug 03 2017

I'm not worried. He had a bad injury and now he's having a good pre-season. Bale is fine.feedback

Aug 02 2017

It's not a good sensation. It's not a good sensation in general. We did good things, but the feeling isn't good. In four games, not being able to win, something's happening. For us, we can't be happy today but at the same time, we're done with the tour. Now we go home and we have four days to prepare for our first official game and that's it. We definitely have to do more.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Portugal

I don't believe these things hurt him. He's happy because it's over. Now he's calm about the topic of football, he wants to play and he'll be with us on the fifth.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Portugal

If he had spoken, there would also be comments. The important thing is what he said to me. He is on holiday and he's calm. He'll be with us on the fifth [of August] and I hope that, after that day, this topic is closed.feedback

Jul 30 2017 - UEFA

The important thing is to be ready for 8 August. I saw some good things out there, but also some things I didn't like. We've got to be patient, work hard and be ready for the UEFA Super Cup.feedback

Jul 30 2017

We made a very poor start. They went 2-0 up within the first six or seven minutes and that was all down to a lack of concentration, we can't go thinking that it was down to anything else. We then started to gain a foothold and played our game, we had some good spells but overall you couldn't say that this was a good performance from us.feedback

Jul 30 2017

We didn't look to hide. We came out looking to perform well and do a good job. We face Barcelona again in a few days but this was a game of contrasts: we started poorly, we then got into the game and then we gave the ball away too easily on a number of occasions, which isn't like us.feedback

Jul 30 2017

The loss doesn't matter that much to me. It always hurts, we don't like to lose, but I don't think it's the most important right now. Later, we do have things to change, yes. But that's why we're here. We're here to work, but I wouldn't change anything.feedback

Jul 29 2017

It doesn't bother me that Cristiano isn't here for tomorrow. He has to make the most of his holiday. The rest are ready.feedback

Jul 29 2017

We lost the ball and we're usually very focused in this regard. But it doesn't matter, we have to do just a bit of work and try to make sure these things don't happen.feedback

Jul 29 2017

We don't look outside much. He's a very good player and our opponents don't need to be told that.feedback

Jul 29 2017

We'll try to be completely focused. Football is about details. If we play as we did the other day, we'll be very happy, but not with the result.feedback

Jul 29 2017

I'm relaxed and I'm delighted with the squad. We have the best, we won and we want to do the same again. The squad is very good and I don't want changes. It's only Cristiano [Ronaldo] who isn't with us [on pre-season] but we know that it's going to be a difficult year. Everyone will want to win and that's more beautiful for us. They've always been the biggest rivals for Madrid. It will be a great game. What interests us is playing the game well. We're annoyed about the City result and we want to do better.feedback

Jul 28 2017

I hope they all stay for this season. I hope everyone remains. I want everyone who is here now to stay, but anything can happen right up until August 31.feedback

Jul 28 2017

I'm the coach, you need to speak with someone else about whether or not it's worth it. Nothing has happened until now, and we have the squad we have.feedback

Jul 28 2017

He's on vacation and he has to take advantage of that also. I think the rest of us, we're ready to play tomorrow and Cristiano will be with us the 5th to start the season.feedback

Jul 28 2017

Him "undoubtedly the greatest midfielder of his generation.feedback

Jul 27 2017

The good thing is that everyone has played. The players who have just joined us played half an hour and did well. Those who started have played for an hour and we've not picked up any injuries. The only one is Toni [Kroos] from the other day. I don't like to lose and we're a bit annoyed.feedback

Jul 27 2017

We didn't have a bad game but it's a bad result. We're still in the preparation stage, it's the second game. There's no need to keep talking about what has happened, we lost and that's that. They were a bit superior at important moments. Now it's time to rest, we have another game on Saturday and we want to have a better match.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I want the BBC to stay put, it's the same for all of the players who are here. That said, up until 31 August anything can happen.feedback

Jul 25 2017

Anything can happen between now and 31 August.feedback

Jul 24 2017

Until August 31 anything can happen. I do not request anything.feedback

Jul 24 2017

I'm talking to the president. The staff. We have 28 here, and I'm happy with the job. Then we'll see what happens.feedback

Jul 21 2017

He is on vacation. He is resting and deserves it. We will wait and when the vacation ends, he will return with us and that's it.feedback

Jul 20 2017

He is very good. He is a talent, he is 18 years old, he has personality. He is very good, very good as a player and has shown it all year, but he is not a player of mine. Apart from what I'm telling you, I can not tell you more.feedback

Jul 20 2017

He is very good, very good as a player and has shown it all year, but he is not a player of mine. Apart from what I'm telling you, I can not tell you more.feedback

Jul 12 2017 - Manchester United

The word 'mistake' is not something you would normally associate with Alex Ferguson's time at Manchester United. But I do think it was a mistake letting Paul Pogba leave.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Manchester United

There are footballers like Gianluigi Buffon, Maradona, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ronaldo who have not won it. I could have never imagined that I would achieve that, and I still have time to go.feedback

Jun 03 2017

That's what I'm interested in right now, everyone in good shape and at a high level.feedback

Jun 03 2017

I'm not going to tell you who's going to play. Isco and Bale are two players who can also play together; in the long run, anything can happen. We know all about pressure at Real Madrid. We're always favourites, but in reality in a final there are no favourites. We're not favourites, nor are Juventus. It's 50-50.feedback

Jun 03 2017

Isco and Bale are two players who can also play together; in the long run, anything can happen.feedback

Jun 03 2017

But we're in the final again, and everything is possible.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Champions League

We kept the ball, pressured higher up and physically I think we won the game there as well because of the determination we showed.feedback

Jun 03 2017

Cristiano is a good person, because he's worried; he worries about the others. What this gives the team is that he always wants to win. He has something inside; he's a born leader, especially on the pitch.feedback

May 30 2017

I have the Real Madrid DNA, that's for sure. It's my home. Everyone has always been very affectionate towards me and I have always defended the values of this club.feedback

May 30 2017

I'm enjoying this moment because I know that one day it will end. I'm on top of my job and we're close to doing something extraordinary, but I'm not thinking about of leaving an important mark in the history of the club. We work hard and that's the spirit of this team.feedback

May 30 2017

I have one more year on my contract but that doesn't mean anything. I want to be at this club but it depends on what you do on the field. I think the club is happy with what we're doing and I'm only interested in that. The future: Saturday and nothing else.feedback

May 30 2017

I've experienced spectacular things with this club as a player, assistant coach and head coach. I'll always be a Real Madrid fan because the club is my life.feedback

May 30 2017 - Champions League

When you lose a final it's a horrible feeling but it's part of football. I accept what football has given me. When I arrived at this club I had to win the Champions League and I got it with this white shirt. After we won the league it was something spectacular. I'm still feeling it and I'm very happy.feedback

May 30 2017

The most important thing is to always give 100 per cent. That's how we have done things during the season, giving everything, with a lot of professionalism and we can be happy for what we have done until now. We have another final and we'll try to do everything we can to win the match.feedback

May 28 2017

What, is 'defend'? That no one ever dribbles or attacks? Bloody hell, football would be boring, wouldn't it? You can prepare [only] to defend but then the guy dribbles past you anyway ... what, you think you're the only one that's quick? If you 'defend', you don't attack; if you 'attack', you don't defend? What's football for? To win. And to win you have to score more. The winner isn't [just] the team that defends incredibly; if you defend well but don't score, it's worthless.feedback

May 26 2017

Of course it's down to the club and the players too, but above all it's down to the coach heading the project.feedback

May 26 2017

I have great respect for him.feedback

May 26 2017

He deserves everything that has been happening to him. He has shown he is among the top coaches in the world. He has rebuilt, or at the very least improved, this Juve team.feedback

May 22 2017

Now? Now, we're going to celebrate. We'll go to Cibeles to see the people because the people have to see their team.feedback

May 22 2017

I'd like to get up here and dance. I'm not going to, but on the inside I'm very, very happy.feedback

May 22 2017

I live what I am doing with passion. After nine, 10 months, to win the league five years later … pfff … there are no words. When you are at Real Madrid you know the expectations are high and I like that. I lived that as a player but this is my happiest day because as a coach it changes completely.feedback

May 21 2017

There are no words to define this. I would like to come up here and dance, but I will not do it. I'm very happy inside. Being a Madrid coach you know the expectations. They are tall and we know that. I like that. I have lived as a player and for me today is the happiest day, professionally. The coach totally changes things. I won everything with this shirt, but winning the league today is the maximum.feedback

May 21 2017

More than managing egos, it's managing people. That's special and it's more important than any tactics.feedback

May 20 2017

I don't know if everyone wants us to lose, but many do. But it's always been like that. It doesn't matter. We know that we have to win on the pitch, without giving up. A lot of people deserve it but we've worked very well until today. But we still haven't won anything. We would have liked to win it earlier but winning this trophy is very nice and it'll go to the very end. We will not give up until the last second.feedback

May 20 2017

The success we're having is down to the unity of the team. They deserve it because they've believed in it from the start. They believed in the system and the idea.feedback

May 20 2017

What Cristiano is doing is amazing and he's in a very sweet moment. He's very happy.feedback

May 18 2017

It all comes down to the final game and it'll be tough, just like tonight's game.feedback

May 18 2017

He's feeling great and he's shown it again here. He has put in a massive shift and worked really hard defensively too. You can tell from the way he's playing that he's in very good nick. For a long time now we've been saying that the team is in good shape physically and today they've proved that. There's still one game to go and we have to get something out of it. We must continue on in the same vein because the title race isn't over just yet. It was important for us to win and we're really pleased with the three points.feedback

May 17 2017

I'm only thing about tomorrow's game and nothing else. Celta are a professional team and will go out to win. Nothing less.feedback

May 16 2017

He will be with us. Whatever happens, if they have to play, they play. The cards as always, they'll do everything they can not to get a yellow. I don't know how long those players have had four yellows, so we'll keep going. This is football, you know. We're just keeping going until the last minute of the last game. We're not going to relax at all, I promise you that. Whatever happens, happens. We haven't won anything.feedback

May 16 2017

We've just got two games left and that's it. I'm thinking positively about the game tomorrow.feedback

May 16 2017

I'm not thinking about anything else, very positive, focusing 100 per cent on what's ahead of us. I'm just being positive.feedback

May 16 2017

James is here, that's not up for question. He's with us. He didn't train [on Tuesday] because he has a knock, but James is here and we're thinking just about the three games we have left this year. I can tell you how he is, he's a lot better, he's out on the pitch, not with the group, but that's positive. We're happy with that, but we just have to think about the game [with Celta] and that's it. Gareth isn't with us.feedback

May 16 2017

Listen, right now is not the time to talk about that.feedback

May 16 2017

Morata wasn't angry with me, he was angry at something else. I don't know what but it can happen, it's fine. We spoke and that's it.feedback

May 14 2017

The good thing is that we are very switched on and very good physically. In every game we are playing for the league.feedback

May 14 2017

Navas has been - and still is - fundamental. It was a deserved win. We started the game very well and then Keylor was very good. It is not easy to win LaLiga. Each day we are getting closer and with two games left we are going to continue in the same vein. We are going to play in Vigo and we will face it up in the same way.feedback

May 13 2017

It's getting better, but you have to go day by day. But he's not even training with us. I cannot tell you when he will return, but hopefully it is soon.feedback

May 11 2017

You know how hard it is and how long the road is to reach a final and for two consecutive years. We have to congratulate the team for having made it to the final.feedback

May 11 2017

He's recovering and there's time for him to be ready for the final. I hope he's ready before and I hope he can be with us more than anything. We're a better team when he plays.feedback

May 10 2017

Real Madrid are absolutely not the favourites. It's very difficult to score against this Juve side. The defence isn't their only strength, either. They have great players in attack, too. I became a man and a better player at Juve. It's a great club. Facing them in the final will be special, because I still have Juventus in my heart. It'll be a wonderful final, we've had a similar path and both teams deserve to be there.feedback

May 10 2017

Now there's time to prepare, but on Sunday we already have an important Liga game [at home to Sevilla].feedback

May 10 2017

We're very happy to reach the final again. Everyone deserves it, above all the players, who have worked so hard until now. It's deserved.feedback

May 09 2017

I don't think it's going to be a problem with the attitude. The important thing is we know the risks of the qualifying round. Nothing is won and we have to play the match, our performance must be excellent to get to the next round. We need to be calm and think that we are playing a soccer match.feedback

May 09 2017

I don't think there's an issue with the players' attitude [being 3-0 up], there are risks involved in football; you have to play, you don't win before the whistle, and we've got to put in a good performance if we want to go through.feedback

May 09 2017

What we have to do is to give 100 per cent to win because it's been eight or nine months of competition and the players have worked very hard throughout this period, but these things can happen in football. Every three days you're up there, you need to produce the goods, you need to deliver. I think we've done a very good job until now, but we've got to prove ourselves again, against Atletico, then on Sunday [at home to Sevilla in La Liga], and then the next week too. There's no divine right, we just have to give 100 per cent.feedback

May 09 2017

We're going to approach the second leg the same way we have done every game – to start strongly to try to win the game, that's our aim. We want to play well and give 100 per cent to win the game, then we'll see what happens. But we're going to keep faith with how we do things, which is to try to win. I'm not thinking we're not going to score, the opposite in fact. We're going to try to score, we're going to try to play well and score, like always.feedback

May 09 2017

The facts are there. We look at the club, how big it is, our fans, those who support us, and we want to achieve the maximum, but we have to prove that we're good enough, starting on Wednesday. We're going to give our all to progress, to qualify for the final. We are all rowing in the same direction, the fans too. Everything will be decided now. We like to be in this position. We have a final on Wednesday, three more in the league, but first we're going to focus on the game against Atletico Madrid.feedback

May 06 2017

It's never happened before so I think he deserves it for the way he has done everything.feedback

May 06 2017

A year and a half ago he was coaching the second division B team in the third tier here in Spain – he has been very humble, he wasn't bossy, but showed his authority when needed. He used the substitutes well at the right moments, when he wanted the first team players to rest, which is very important in a great club.feedback

May 06 2017

It is important to make every player happy, despite not all of them of course can play, and when Bale was injured he changed the 4-3-3 system to the 4-4-2 in which Cristiano Ronaldo has been very comfortable.feedback

May 06 2017

In short I think he has been nearly perfect in the way he has managed this team and that's why he's got two Champions League titles in a row.feedback

May 06 2017

We are thinking about ourselves, thinking of winning. Three finals remain.feedback

May 06 2017

Now we will relax, thinking about Wednesday, which is going to test us a lot more than tonight, and we are going to have to have a perfect game.feedback

May 06 2017

I speak to Cristiano a lot. He knows and he understands well that until now he has always played 50, 60, or 70 games a season. The accumulation of all the years, he knows as well, sometimes you have to stop and rest. I have said before that I don't want to be the coach that makes Cristiano sit out. I speak to him and all the players a lot and I know that at times players have to rest. With all the games that we have to play in, if we want to be in good form and be at a great physical level then we have to rest players - that's it. It is a dialogue that we have. We have conversations about it.feedback

May 06 2017

We have three 'finals' left, plus a fourth in Europe to maybe reach the final [itself]; we know what we have to do.feedback

May 05 2017

I'm not worried about anything but at the moment we haven't won anything. We could win two, one or end up winning nothing. The only thing I can say is all we are doing is we must keep going every day until the last minute of the last match of the season.feedback

May 05 2017

We always go out to try and play the game - we can start one way and finish in another. If you think we have got less balance with the BBC and it is a problem [when they play], then I don't think that is true. I think it is the opposite. They are three huge world-class players, they are very good. But what Toni says is perhaps true as well, we can have more balance when the game needs it, such as playing with players on the wing who can defend and attack.feedback

May 05 2017

That is what we want to do. Real Madrid wants to do it that way, I can't tell you how things are going to end up, but I'm not worried. The only thing I can say is I like the way that we work.feedback

May 05 2017

I have said before that I don't want to be the coach that has made the decision to leave Cristiano out. I speak to him and all the players a lot and I know that at times players have to rest. With all the games that we have to play in, if we want to be in good form and be at a great physical level then we have to rest players - that's it. It is a dialogue that we have. We have conversations about it.feedback

May 05 2017

When I make a change it isn't always just to defend, sometimes it is the opposite. When Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez came on [against Atletico] it wasn't to defend. Everyone can have their opinion but I am very happy with the BBC and all the players. The games that we have played with the three up front can you tell me when we haven't played a good game? There have been very few that we haven't played well. To put together a side it is always complicated, all the other players are good, they all want to play and do very well. The BBC also do very well.feedback

May 02 2017

Cristiano is a goalscorer. He's unique. All the players were brilliant. One lad comes off and another one comes on and plays a great game. We knew what we had to do from the off and we played the game we wanted to. Isco played as a number 10 and was fantastic. We then had width with [Lucas] Vazquez and [Marco] Asensio when they came on. In a defensive sense we were brilliant too. I'm very happy with everyone's work.feedback

May 02 2017

Over the last four or five years especially, they have made it very difficult for us. You can't live off the past. What happened, happened. This is totally different. They'll do everything to go through.feedback

Atlético never give in, they always fight, battle, and use their weapons in the best way.feedback

May 01 2017

It's a team that always troubles us, just as many other teams. The main strength of the team is they never put their arms down whatever it happens, it's a team that always fights.feedback

Apr 28 2017

Ronaldo has always played on the wing but he has the quality to play in several positions. He could play as an out-and-out striker as he's a great player. And almost 400 goals as a winger... that's something we can't forget. It's an amazing achievement but he's so good he could play anywhere. I don't know anything about his future. But there's a pain in his ribs. He is in better shape and hopefully he'll be back before the end of the season.feedback

Apr 26 2017

I come away from here happy with the performance and everyone's goals. The players that don't get as many minutes are also focused and fitness-wise you couldn't spot any difference, quite the opposite. They're in fine shape and they've proved that. They're keen to play, I've got a great group here and they're all ready to face up to the challenges that lie ahead and we've got some real cup finals ahead of us from now on in.feedback

Apr 26 2017

We created a lot of chances in the first half and we failed to put all of them away. Many of the players who've featured here aren't our regular starters and what they've gone out and done, in terms of the tempo and discipline, was amazing.feedback

Apr 26 2017

Isco was phenomenal. He does things on the pitch that not everybody can. The fans congratulated him, I am happy for him, for the work he does. When he has to play he always does his job.feedback

Apr 25 2017

Barca will win La Liga, Madrid are worth nothing.feedback

Apr 25 2017

When we lose we have to know how to accept the criticism. Sometimes that can motivate you even more, and we will try and do that. He will be with us, he is good, physically very good has trained normally. But you will see the XI tomorrow [Wednesday].feedback

Apr 24 2017

We could have done things differently, but we were optimistic and thought we could score the third.feedback

Apr 15 2017

In football there's no luck. There's lot of hard work, effort in every game, every moment, every ball.feedback

Apr 12 2017

We know the importance that Toni has for us. He's a very intelligent player but not just with the ball. Tactically he's very good as well.feedback

Apr 11 2017

I know him very well and he knows me very well but that doesn't mean anything. It's not a disadvantage or an advantage. There's a game tomorrow and I think that it's two very good teams coming up against each other and that's it. We're not playing against Carlo. I learnt many, many things [from Ancelotti]. But, as you know, I'm not going to tell you what I learnt with him. But it was many things. The better you are the more criticised you are but they know it and are accustomed to it.feedback

Apr 11 2017

They are experienced players, very good players and they are players who are criticised.feedback

Apr 09 2017

Physically we are in good shape.feedback

Apr 07 2017

We expect 90 minutes when we are going to have to suffer In the little details, we're going to try and get under their skin a little bit.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Everybody says that this is a very good defensive team and I say, yeah, they do defend well but they are not just defensive. Over the last few years – the last four or five years since Simeone's been there they've improved a lot in that aspect but they also play football very well. They don't just have defensive players. I'm not just talking about the three up front but the midfield and the full-backs, they all know how to play football.feedback

Apr 07 2017

If Madrid ask us about Theo, the answer would be energetic and determined. Theo is our player, on loan at Alaves, but our player.feedback

Apr 07 2017

The idea is to get to the end of the season in the best possible physical shape. I think when Cristiano or Gareth [Bale] don't play we know it's because there are a lot of games coming up and the other players who are training, I know what they can bring to the team. Every game is a story in itself. We know that. That's why we go game by game. Hopefully we are going to end the season very well.feedback

Apr 06 2017

I want La Decima (the 10th), La Undecima (the 11th) and La Duodecima (the 12th). You know how things are. Next year it's going to be even more difficult and we are going to have to work very hard to be able to win once again.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Champions League

No one did it [defending the Champions League] and we did it so you can say today is a truly historic day for all Madrid fans. For myself, for the whole [Madrid] family.feedback

Apr 06 2017

I can't say whether I'll stay for the rest of my life but I'm so grateful for the club for everything it has given me. I played here for a long time and I feel part of the furniture. I'm also lucky to be part of this club and with this squad. Every player in the squad has played their part, and that's been the key factor this season.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Champions League

Today we can say that we are a very good team and that we deserve to win the league and the Champions League, which was not easy.feedback

Apr 06 2017

But you know how things are. Next year it's going to be even more difficult and we are going to have to work very hard to be able to win once again.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Second half we were clearly superior, we kept the ball, physically I think we won the game there as well. Thanks to the determination we showed I'm so very happy.feedback

Apr 06 2017

No one did it [defending the Champions League] and we did it so you can say today is a truly historic day for all Madrid fans, for myself, for the whole [Madrid] family. But you know how things are. Next year it's going to be even more difficult and we are going to have to work very hard to be able to win once again. In the end you're playing against a great team and it's a 50-50 chance but we started with difficulty.feedback

Apr 06 2017

We've got there with hard work and optimism. It has been a spectacular year.feedback

Apr 06 2017

It's a year that the players and the club should be congratulated for.feedback

Apr 06 2017

I'm not the best coach in the world. Clearly, I'll continue… our thoughts are already turning to next year but now we're going to enjoy this. It's a tremendous feeling of joy for the players and the club. We're happy because it's not easy to achieve things like winning the league and the Champions League. It's the same, it's a special day, but LaLiga was the happiest day of my career, because it's 38 matches and to win with the last one is brilliant. It's a year that the players and the club should be congratulated for.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Clearly, I'll continue… our thoughts are already turning to next year but now we're going to enjoy this.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Champions League

We're happy because it's not easy to achieve things like winning the league and the Champions League.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Real have a better midfield, but Juventus' defence is superior. The attacks are both at a high level.feedback

Apr 04 2017

I think he is going to finish the season like never before. Well, I never know because he also ended other years very well, but he's very good physically and I hope he will end [the season] very well. Maybe I'm going to make a mistake. You're telling me that Modric is doing something wrong and I'm worried about what you're saying, how can you tell me it's not right?feedback

Mar 17 2017

Yes, we can improve. That's obvious. But we're not playing badly. I think the results that we've achieved up until now have been good. You know what we did. And what's left in this season, it's going to be very important because everything is going to be decided now after the international break.feedback

Mar 17 2017

April's going to be a big month for us. We have a group and a squad to achieve good things. I'm happy because the best part of the season is coming, where everything is decided. I think the players know that. We're focused on our objective, which is to win everything.feedback

Mar 17 2017

We know it's going to be a difficult game… and we know it's a hostile atmosphere. I don't know if they can decide the league. But they're three big points for us. They're going to defend strongly, they're doing very well. We're going to suffer, but we're working hard, we're confident, we've got good character, we need to put all these ingredients together to win. What we're going to try and do is just put in a good performance and keep picking up points. Pressure, we're going to have pressure until the end.feedback

Mar 17 2017

What we did last year, if we can repeat it, that would be great. It's in our hands at the moment but it's a long [time], there's a lot [of matches] left, it's going to be tough. We're going to take each game as it comes. That's the best thing we can do.feedback

Mar 17 2017

They keep achieving what they are told they can't achieve. Whatever club Leicester face, they won't be favorites. And with that pressure off them and on the other team, anything can happen.feedback

Mar 13 2017

It's part of the game, everyone makes mistakes. In the end he saved us. I'm happy with how his team-mates got behind him. The save he made has given us the three points. The referee decides whether or not it's a penalty. Keylor has a big personality and he made a great stop at the end. He made up for the mistake and made sure we got all three points.feedback

Mar 13 2017

My evaluation of the match is very good because we picked up the three points. We didn't have it all our own way and that's normal, but I am happy. We must congratulate all the players because we've had to be patient. The result in the end is a fair one, even if at times it didn't all go our way. The opposition played in their own half, they defended well and caused us problems on the counter-attack. We're happy with the result and we must congratulate the players because it wasn't easy. The pressure is there, it doesn't end here, there's still a lot to play for and we know that.feedback

Mar 12 2017

With 4-4-2 we have more balance, but I'm not thinking about these things. I know that we can play in many ways and we can do it well. With three or two up top, we can change our system. The most important thing is attitude and what we want.feedback

Mar 11 2017

My players are up for the title race.feedback

Mar 11 2017

I don't think they're more dangerous or anything has changed since the last time we spoke. I'm not going to talk about percentages. I am focused on our game on Sunday. I'm not here to talk about what happened in midweek. We have not won the league for quite a few years, maybe five or six years. We are really motivated, we want to win this league title. It's difficult to play every three days with the same intensity and energy. Rivals also play their part and can make life hard for you. The league is important and we want to win this league title this season.feedback

Mar 11 2017

Of course, Bale can drop into the midfield four, but I prefer the three up front. What do you [the reporter] prefer, why. I think Gareth offers more up front with Benzema and Ronaldo. Gareth on the left, Ronaldo on the right and Karim Benzema up front – that's how I like to see my front three. With the three up front we create a lot of chances, with three [midfield] players tucked in behind. We played very well in Eibar [last weekend's 4-1 win] with a 4-2-3-1 formation, or 4-4-2.feedback

Mar 11 2017

It depends. With one up front, two up front or four in the middle we can change our formation and switch. Everyone has a right to have their own opinion. You may feel we play better with four men across the middle. If all three [Benzema, Bale and Ronaldo] are fit I have all three playing up front. It was a knock, a blow – he'll be in the squad. Nothing serious, he'll be with us on Sunday.feedback

Mar 07 2017

During the season there are moments that you have to suffer, sometimes you don't play a good match, but this is normal in a very difficult league as La Liga. Today we played a very complete game from the beginning, with intensity. We did several changes in the line-up and the players who entered did a great game. Eibar are a very good team that are doing a good season.feedback

Mar 06 2017

They're probably concerned about our whole team and it's the same for us.feedback

Mar 06 2017

You know what this club is and you know that everyone says we're favourites but there are no favourites in football. In a final there are no favourites, in one game many things can happen.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Really in the long run we're not favourite, Juventus are not favourite. It's 50-50.feedback

Mar 06 2017

We always live under this pressure. I've seen it as a player, I've seen it as a coach.feedback

Mar 06 2017

But we're here and we're going to try to do everything possible to win.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Especially now, because Juventus… they always had very good teams but now… I don't know about the best team ever but they have very good offensive players.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Ronaldo no doubt. Because he scores goals and that's most important. I used to play very well but scoring was not my speciality, I have scored some important goals but not many. He's a good person because he worries about the others. But what I would like to insist on, what's important is what he does professionally. As many people say, he always wants more even if he's playing in a training session he wants to win.feedback

Mar 06 2017

He's got something inside that he's a born leader.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I hope Real Madrid win another title, but it's going to be tough.feedback

Mar 06 2017

And tomorrow at 20:45 (local time) I'm going to be in front of the TV for sure, supporting my team.feedback

Mar 05 2017

When you look at the game and the scoreline it means we played a great game. We still have the second leg. We will have to work hard and fight for it. We will suffer at their place for sure. I don't think that we're euphoric and imagining ourselves in the final. There's no such thing as an easy game and we need to play a perfect game at their place in order to go through.feedback

Mar 05 2017

I'm lucky to have these players. We try to play our football and enjoy ourselves. It works because we have great players with great attitudes.feedback

Mar 05 2017

We're content, very happy and we can enjoy it, but we still have a long way to go in the Champions League and LaLiga.feedback

Mar 04 2017

When they applaud you, especially the rival supporters, it is not usual. We know that Luka is fundamental for us. He handles game situations very well and off the pitch, he is a spectacle because of his professionalism.feedback

Mar 03 2017

The positive thing is that we came back in the last two games, drawing the last game and winning in Villarreal. There are things we can improve – let it be tomorrow. Ronaldo is feeling some muscular problems. That's why he has not trained with us.feedback

Mar 03 2017

You have the possibility every three days to get back to doing things better. It's not the best moment in the season with the last three or four matches we have played. We cannot stumble because if we want to win La Liga you cannot lose many games. We are never going to look for excuses, we depend on ourselves in the sense that we know what we can get by fighting and working in training and in matches. It is a time when results are not what we expected but the important thing is to give one hundred percent and improve things. Within a season, this can happen.feedback

Mar 02 2017

There are no excuses: we need to do things differently.feedback

Feb 14 2017

Every team wants to win the Champions League, but it's a long, hard road and we're on that road. The good thing is that We're in good shape, we have everyone back available, which makes it harder for me to decide who to play, but it makes me very happy.feedback

Feb 05 2017

As a coach, he is the best player I have had. I only know Simeone from playing against him but they are two people I have enormous respect for both of them for the job they are doing. Simeone is a very experienced coach.feedback

Feb 05 2017

Simeone and Mono [German] Burgos are doing a great job for their club. I know Burgos a bit - I like him and have great respect for him.feedback

Jan 05 2017

I don't think we're conceding cheap goals but it is true that we are conceding more goals.feedback

Jan 05 2017

You don't train [to play with 10] but you tell the players there is a possibility. Against Barcelona we were down to 10 men and we had a player [Ramos] sent off. Our opponents, Bayern Munich, had a player sent off. It can happen and we have to be ready, pack the midfield and make sure the team is in good shape. I won't tell Casemiro to change how he plays, as he has been perfect so far. He got a yellow card after 10 minutes the other day. If he can escape a booking, then he will try to.feedback

Jan 05 2017

James had a good game, he worked hard and scored two goals. He was important, just like everyone else.feedback

Sep 15 2016

I do not know if this is fair or not, but what is clear is that we have believed until the end and here is the proof that you have to play until the end, until the last minute, you have to make changes. The good thing about us is that we are close, a tight group, focused and able to make a difference any minute.feedback

May 30 2016

I am very happy for everything we have achieved together, because you know it is not easy at all to win the Champions League. We really worked hard, we fought it out and I am very happy.feedback

Apr 13 2016

I'm very happy and very proud about everything they've done tonight. We had a special night, we achieved what we wanted and I'm very happy for the players because what they did together was phenomenal.feedback

Apr 11 2016

This club has always been like this, we have achieved extraordinary turnarounds. Very important matches have been played here at the Bernabeu, and tomorrow's is just one more match. Maybe the most important match of the season, but it's just a football match.feedback

Jan 05 2016

Football with a personal touch, with attacking play, is what I'll aim for. I'll try to evolve from what I was, to what I am as a coach now. But as a coach my goal is for the players to enjoy it on the pitch.feedback

Jan 04 2016

I'm more emotional now than when I signed as a player.feedback

Jan 04 2016

We have to do our best so that the team is able to win something. I'm going to put all my heart into Real Madrid.feedback
