“I’m happy for him, he deserves it. He has worked hard, he is a player who has a bright future ahead of him. Real Madrid will help with that.” Pepe on Raphael Varane
“Our attitude wasn’t good enough, and that includes me. Borussia were better than us. We have to believe [that we can turn the tie around] in the second leg, but it’ll be difficult. In general, when you draw one of these teams it seems like we’re going to go through but they haven’t got this far for nothing (…) It’s down to us. We have to give everything [to go through] because it’s time we got to the final. We have to take a look at ourselves, every one of us.” - Sergio Ramos (video) | 24-04-13

We are ready
something is changing inside you,
and don’t you know?
Real Madrid is a global idea, something that is worth all the effort. it is Bernabéu and Di Stefano, it is Chamartín and Cibeles, is it the green of the grass, it is pipes, it is cigars. it is smiles and applause, it is tears and whistles, it is joy and sadness, it is throats and voices. Real Madrid is not the goal scored, it is the next one. it is Madrid, Spain, Europe and the World. it is sport and spectacle. Real Madrid is eleven artists and eleven warriors. it is envy and admiration, it is relevant whether you hate or love it.
