“We’re up against a very strong, important team. Playing against Inter Milan is an incentive for us”, he stressed.

Rafa Benítez spoke to the media in the Tianhe Stadium press room. The Real Madrid coach looked ahead to the match against Inter Milan: “We’re here to play an important game. We’re up against a very strong, important team. Playing these types of games against opponents as important as Inter Milan is an incentive for us”.

“I’m very happy with the welcome that we’ve been given here. It has been really great; we’ve been shown real affection. Real Madrid’s stature is clear to see in China too. The people on the streets are always asking us for photographs and autographs”.

The quality of Isco and James
“As a coach, I’m really happy to have quality players like James and Isco. If we want to be competitive, they have to give 100%. I prefer to have top-level players and they both make it difficult for me. James’ attitude has looked really good to me, but he has only recently arrived. Tomorrow we’ll make decisions on who is going to play and how long they’re each going to play”.

“I’m very happy with the work that the team has put in.”

“The training sessions in Australia were really high-intensity, and I’m very happy with the work that the team has put in. Tomorrow it’ll be hot and humid. We haven’t decided on the team yet. We’ll do that tomorrow, depending on how things look”.

Ramos
“I’ve been focused on training and I haven’t been able to have a chat with either Florentino Pérez or Ramos. Florentino told me that they were going to talk at lunch. Ramos looked good to me, as always”.

Benzema and Modric
“Modric and Benzema trained separately and have niggles, but tomorrow we’ll decide whether or not they can play against Inter Milan”.

Cristiano Ronaldo
“There’s no problem at all with him. What happened was part and parcel of the job and of training”.

“Inter are one of Europe’s biggest teams, it’ll be a difficult game and a great occasion for the fans”, he said.

Pepe faced the media in the Tianhe Stadium press room. The defender discussed the third fixture of Real Madrid’s preseason preparations: “It’ll be a difficult game against one of Europe’s biggest teams, and a great occasion for the fans. We have to be prepared”.

“We really like being here. The people are really nice. We have to do everything that the coach asks of us in training and be prepared for a tough match. Things are going well and we have to carry on in this vein”.

Working with Benítez
“Every coach has their own approach and all the team are working hard to take on board what he asks of us in every training session, so that we’re in good shape when the competitive games come around. The coach wants the whole team to work really hard, and that’s what we looked to do against Manchester City”.

“We’re working hard and doing everything the coach asks of us to come into the season firing on all cylinders.”

“I’m very happy playing and training at this club each and every day. My contract renewal is a matter for my agent and the president. I have to do my job well throughout the year and I hope that all together we can win many trophies this season”.

The atmosphere in the dressing room
“We’re very happy, working hard and doing everything the coach asks of us to come into the season in good shape and firing on all cylinders. We want to get ourselves up to speed as soon as possible”.

Ramos
“He looks fine to me. Him not being here is something that doesn’t enter any Madridista’s head. He’s our captain and I’m sure that he’s going to stay here because he really loves this club and the club loves him. I hope he stays, because he’s a leader at Real Madrid”.
