It is difficult to do this for fifteen years, but we are already motivated for next year, the club will change things “.
The support of the fans
“We're going to try to get to the top level again, like before this season, I can not say we're going to win everything, because I do not know, but we're going to try, we need the fans, we've celebrated a lot together. to the Bernabéu. “

The last renewal of his career?

“It's a bit difficult, I see how we train, how we prepare … We are always very motivated, there were games in which the feeling was not that, I understand when they say we are not hungry, we have also played good matches, but it was very difficult change things when they went wrong and matches. “
The importance of La Liga
“What has been lacking in La Liga is perseverance, what we have done very well is to be on top when we have to be: in Champions, at home, in the finals … Doing 38 games is more difficult and we have to improve a lot. This competition is day to day and there is better in La Liga, we only won one in the last five years. “
He never thought about leaving
“No, because at that time my head does not say 'I'm leaving', it says 'I want to improve.' It has never been in my head to get out of here and the club's opinion was the same, when I leave I'll win.”
