Zinedine Zidane spoke to the press after his side’s victory at El Alcoraz against Huesca. The Real Madrid coach said: "It was a really important win for us because we’ve been struggling a bit recently. We showed a lot of character and it was a big win for us that helps us to move in the right direction. We have to be patient and we should be pleased with our performance." 

"We’re pleased with the win. It was a tough game, but we managed to take all three points. It’s a long season and there’s still loads to play for and we have to keep fighting. I’m very pleased with the performance. We didn’t get off to the best start, but after 20 minutes we began to control the game. It was important to get the win and we have to keep improving and get back to our best football, which we all want to see at Real Madrid." "It’s not easy to come from 1-0 down. We struggled a bit after their goal but we knew we could turn it around and we showed great character to do so. It’s significant to get a win like this after going behind.” 

Asensio
"He was fantastic, I’m really pleased with him. He had his injury but we know what a great player he is and we’re all happy for him. We want him to keep on in this way, doing what he’s doing.” 

Sergio Ramos
"It was important for him to have the surgery so he could be more relaxed. We had to do it because he was at his limit and the operation was a success. The key thing is to see him starting work as of tomorrow so he can get back with us as soon as possible”.
