RM: Post-Atleti Comments (4.11.12)

Karanka: “The outcome of the league has not been decided. We’ve been saying this for a long time. We know who we are & where we stand. We said this two months ago when some people believed we could be greeted as champions at this stage, & we said it again three days ago when everyone thought we would lose. We’ve always been confident. We must continue working hard, fighting & believing in ourselves.”

Cristiano: “The team is in good form, confident & ready for its next game. I’ve been one booking short of a suspension for two months, but I’m behaving myself.” [videos: English / Spanish]

Callejón: “I always try to do my best. I’ve supported Real Madrid since I was a kid, & I always will.” [video: Spanish]

Alonso: “My booking was circumstantial. These things happen in a match, & I was reaching my limit.” [video: Spanish]

Ramos: "Taking three points was vital after drawing against Valencia. A team like Real Madrid lives with pressure, but we know how to withstand it and we have to be ready for everything. Each match is a matter of life and death. We earned an important victory tonight. Everything turned out well and we’re calm." [videos: English / Spanish]

Man of the Match: Cristiano Ronaldo
