Lucas Vázquez: “We have to fight to win everything”
by Alberto Navarro (Montreal)
“Right now I don’t think there’s any doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo is the favourite for the Ballon d’Or”, said the madridista.
Lucas Vázquez spoke to Realmadrid.com and Realmadrid TV at the Montreal Impact facilities where the Whites are getting in shape ahead of the new season. The forward discussed the pre-season: “Real Madrid is a demanding club. It’s about winning every game and every tournament that you play in. That’s what all of madridismo have become used to and we have to fight to win everything”.
“The most important thing for a footballer is never losing the desire to win, to train and get better every day. This is a good dynamic and the right path to follow”.
His favourite for the Ballon d’Or
“Right now I don’t think there’s any doubt. Cristiano Ronaldo deserves it more than anyone else and I hope he wins it again. Playing alongside him makes everything easier. You often send him a bad pass but he’ll score anyway. It’s incredible what he’s doing”.
His penalty in Milan
“I was focused on putting it away and helping the team, with the confidence that scoring the first kick gives you. Once you score you’re happy, and even more so when it leads to us clinching the European Cup”.
The Real Madrid forward was in Funchal for the expansion of his museum.
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to his birth place, the Portuguese city of Funchal, to inaugurate the expansion of his museum which is already home to a replica of the eleventh European Cup he clinched on the 28th of May in Milan: “It was a special moment for us to win la Undécima. In terms of trophies, this has been the best year of my career. I have won the two most important trophies for club and country”.
“I’m very happy to have the trophy here in the museum. Winning with Real Madrid, where I have been for seven seasons, it’s a really happy time for me. Things are going very well. The next trophy I bring here will be as European champions with the national team, with Portugal, which was really important to us as well”.
