BenÝtez: "We put in a very good game in attack and in defence"


Rafa Benítez analysed Real Madrid's second preseason fixture in Australia, which saw the Whites beat Manchester City: "Although we're in preseason, it's always positive to see the team perform like this. We put in a very good game both in attack and in defence".

"In the end it's the small details that are important, and today we saw a team with high-quality players who played with good organisation. We're a team that are going to score goals. We have to attack and make that slight improvement in defence that we need".

Preseason abroad

"In general, I think that with such long journeys preseason can be tricky. In China now, with the humidity and so on, we'll have to work hard to continue bringing the team up to speed".


"We're in no rush. Kiko arrived from Spain just a few days ago and today we preferred to field Keylor".


"When I arrived, I spoke to Iker and Sergio and ascertained what the situation of each one was. Sergio has known from day one that I want him to stay and I'm sure that he'll stay with us".
