Kaka, Cristiano, Benzema and Garay: "We hope to star in the Champions League final"
Laura Navas / Translation by Michael J. O'Donnell
Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Ezequiel Garay got together to comment on what will be their first Champions League experience at the Bernabeu as Real Madrid players.
"I am proud to be part of this team. We want to win and make Real Madrid history, but we must take things slowly and calmly. It isn't easy to win the Champions League. People are talking about it as if we had already won it; the team stll has to grow and improve on many things. We dream about playing the final at our stadium."
"The fans' euphoria concerning the new project is normal, but just as Kaka has said, we have to take things slowly and focus on each match at a time. We want to win, but success doesn't come from one day to the next. We have to remain calm and build a proper team. I think we have chances to win, but we must take things slowly and work hard. That's what's most important."
"I know we can win. Football is full of surprises, but we want this title. The trophy means a lot to us. It will be tough, but we have a great team. We have everything a team needs to win the title. We will do our best to win because this is a very prestigious and important title for this great club."
"It is a great challenge for me to play in this competition with Real Madrid. It is an incentive for me to play for a team with such prestige in Europe. I think we are all motivated because the final will be held at this stadium. We hope to star in the final."
