18/12/2013 : Real Madrid 2 - 0 Olímpic Xàtiva
About his first goal for Real Madrid : "I saw an opening, ran into it and was on my own. Then I wasn’t sure what to do but ended up putting the ball in the net and everyone was happy. We knew that we had to start strongly, because we struggled to find spaces in the first leg. We went for the match, we scored and it started to go our way. I think the whole team played well. I don’t get many chances like that and luckily it ended up in the back of the net".
About the Olímpic Xàtiva’s attitude : ”They showed that they are a strong team at the back in the first leg. Every team that plays against Real Madrid are highly motivated and give more than one hundred percent”.
About the Whites’ aspirations in the competition and Osasuna, their next opponents : "The aim is always to win the cup at Real Madrid and that is what we’re going for. In the last match we made things difficult. Playing the first match at home means that we have to get a good result because their ground is a tough place to visit."
About his relation to Xabi Alonso : "He has always been a player I look up to and now I play with him and it is a pleasure. We have shown that we can play together and the coach has another option there. When you come to Real Madrid with all the competition that there is, it is difficult to get to play, but I’m happy".
About his relationship with the Bernabéu crowd : "They show me a lot of affection and I am very grateful. I have no complaints".
About he upcoming match against Valencia and last Saturday’s refereeing in the El Sadar Stadium : "We cannot slip up any more in the league, so we have to win in Valencia. Sometimes decisions go for you and sometimes against you. We have to be happy with the job that we did. Sergio Ramos did not deserve the first yellow because he did not touch the player".
