Zidane: "I hope we make the fans proud of us on Tuesday"

"I ask for nothing from the Bernabéu crowd. They know what they need to do". He also acknowledged that Jesé's injury forced Cristiano to complete the game.


The build up ahead of the Wolfsburg game: “I'm more nervous than in my playing days. I'm fully aware that we have a huge game ahead. When things are difficult is when great things happen. We'll relax after today's Eibar game and get ready for Tuesday”.

Danilo subject to whistles: “Every player has been whistled at during their time at the club and it's annoying if you're on the receiving end. He's a great professional and knows what he needs to do. This is something that we need to forget about and ensure that our focus its all about the Wolfsburg game”.

Changes in players “We tried certain players today who normally don't get a start. We're a united but numerous group and I'm delighted with the performance this afternoon”.

Carvajal starting: “We'll see what starting XI we go for on Tuesday although it needs to be pointed out that Danilo was only subject to whistles at the start of the game. I'd have loved to see him score at the end”.

What is the game-plan for Tuesday? “There is plenty for us to do and it's certainly not going to be easy. We know we are facing a huge challenge. The preparation starts now. We need to relax after the Eibar game and work on our strategy at training on Monday. It will be really important to start well against Wolfsburg”.

Giving Cristiano a rest: “That was the initial plan but Jesé picking up a knock changed that. At the same time Cristiano is more than capable of playing for more than 90 minutes”.

James, Isco, Jesé…: “They did well although the play less, I'm happy with them all".
