September 2014

"The team was negative everywhere, it was horrible, we didn’t play well. We cannot let slip a 0-2 lead like that. We have to take the defeat on the chin and learn from today’s mistakes”. “Of course anything we can learn from is welcome. But this is not the attitude or the path to take. We are playing for a very important club and that is not the sort of example we want to give to the rest of the world. […] "We are all guilty, not just those in defence, because we all defend a corner. We have to fix it because what happened is not normal.” — Iker Casillas

"A lot of people are going to find it hard to sleep tonight because of us, and that’s not right. The club’s motto is to fight to the very end, and tonight we failed the shirt." — Pepe

- He’s at the coach’s disposal and is learning from Casillas to improve as a player.


- Assistant coach Clement tells Talk Sport he doesn’t think there will be much movement in the roster before the transfer window closes because the squad isn’t large (20 outfield, 3 keepers).
