On Bale:
“I’m pleased with him, he needs to take it slow to get back to his best. We are in a good dynamic and I’m happy. I rely on all these players”.

On Benzema: 
"I'm not worried (that he didn't score). It's the situation we have now. He likes to score and he did the other day against Betis. Tonight he did not but he did a lot of good things for his team-mates."

Conceding from a free kick:
“I’m not worried. That’s football. I’d rather concede and then score three or four. Conceding early on comes from a lack of concentration but I’m not fretting. I would be worried if we didn’t react but tonight we did and we got the win."

Reserves coming in: “Lucas and Asensio have always been important and I’m over the moon for Lucas because he deserves it. He scored and fought hard despite the injuries he had beforehand. Asensio did well too and Kovacic was phenomenal. We have had tough times and we have to enjoy this moment. What matters is they do well and show their flair when they take to the pitch. I have to come up with a starting eleven and that can be tough at times. It is great for me to see those players who have played less, coming on and playing well."
