Theo Hernández, who made his Real Madrid debut in the 1-1 draw against Levante at the Bernabéu, spoke to reporters after the game.

“We’re hurting because of the draw. But we’ll keep working hard and fighting to get points on the board. We’ll take it game by game. We’re not happy with the result but we have to start thinking about Wednesday and the Champions League. We played our game. We had chances and we didn’t take them. Levante had one and they scored from it.”

Real suffering from suspensions

Hernández also noted that Madrid are being hampered by suspensions this season, with Marcelo joining Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos in being sent off at this early stage. “We need all the players who have been suspended, one hundred percent. But the referee made his decision and that’s that.”

Speaking about Ronaldo, who is serving a five-match ban for a shove on the referee during the Spanish Super Cup, the full back said: “We need Cristiano back with us now so he can score goals.”
