It is the requirement, even when you lose in a training you dislike “When you win, everything is fine. It’s the real desire to always win. Even in training it is like that. It doesn’t matter if you exercise, you want to win. When you are there, when you train, you want to win absolutely everything,” said the French defender an interview in Realmadrid TV.
Mendy also reviewed what a game against Barcelona with the white elastic means: “It is true that my first Classic was special. I had already played at the Camp Nou with Lyon, but with the Madrid shirt it is another environment, it is different. It’s a match that you don’t live in the same way as another. It’s a match you want to win, “he said.
The Frenchman landed in summer in the capital of Spain to reinforce the left back and reviewed his first encounter with his compatriot Zinedine Zidane, as well as his first months in the club: “In the first meeting with Zidane we talked and he said he was welcome, that he was one more player of his team and that he showed what I am worth, that he gave everything. “
“When you get to a new team it is difficult to let go directly, but I think that game by game I will let go and I hope to reach the maximum to contribute more in attack. I am more focused on defending well than attacking. In Lyon I defended less and attacked a lot, so I have to find the intermediate point to do it right, “he added.

Then I see that Karim is unchecked and I do not doubt it, I put a powerful center and he marks. I had seen him before center and I did not hesitate. We know well that Karim likes the ball there and it came out perfect, “he said.
Finally, the side highlighted the importance that Benzema is having for his adaptation: “I talk a lot with Karim, he gives me a lot of advice and we also talk about how he likes the ball to get to him.
