Real Madrid Unbeaten since Paris loss
Zinedine Zidane has been able to restructure his Real Madrid team since the 3-0 defeat to PSG, avoiding defeat in every match since, and Lucas Vazquez believes that, whilst the trip to Paris was a difficult moment, the group has recovered well.
Having only scored one goal in his six LaLiga Santander appearances this term, Vazquez has yet to hit top gear, but remains confident he’ll contribute as the campaign progresses.
“It was a difficult time in Paris, but the team has recovered well,” Vazquez admitted at an event organised by Televes.
“We are the league leaders living in a good situation.
“We have to be proud of it.”
When asked on his beginnings in football, the Spanish midfielder recalled his childhood and how he was destined to go into the sport from an early age.
“Since I was a child my earliest memories are playing football with my brother,” he added.
“I was always surrounded by a ball, I started at three or four years old, what I need to tell you is never stop dreaming and working hard.
“That’s how you reach your goals, the important thing is to enjoy football every day, if you get to play it, it’s the best thing there is.”
Cristiano Ronaldo‘s departure from the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu undoubtedly weakened the Real Madrid team, however Vazquez believes that the squad is in a good shape.
“What changed is that we now have another No.7,” he confirmed.
“Cristiano was very important to us, but we’re very happy with the squad we have now.
“We want to fight to win everything.”
