Real Madrid coach: We deserved to win

The Italian said: “We deserved to win. In the second half we played well. Only at the end, with the long balls, did they threaten but we also had opportunities on the counter.

“While we had several shots, Iker Casillas did not have one save make. The only time he did was in the warm up.

“The attitude of the players pleased me. The team was in good psychological and physical condition. To win here is not easy, so I am happy.

“We are all pleased because we are joint-top until Wednesday, but this is a difficult league.

“I am also happy for the youngsteres who are playing at the moment. It is not easy to find a player with as much personality as Torres, who has quality in defence and attack.

“We had a few chances, at least five clear opportunities. What is important is that we scored. There will be days when we create only three chances and score three goals.

“The right team won. We are in good form and we have beaten a team that prevented Sevilla from doing anything only last week.”
