"It’s important to show solidarity among teammates for us to be happy. We are very involved and even the most modes players can count on us. We might not be scoring many goals in the National Team lately, but we generate many chances and it’s something than can change from one match to another. It’s a matter of being right.’’ On comparisons with Iniesta? ‘’It’s easy to get along with Andrés. It’s so flattering to be compared to him, but everyone is unique and I want to make my history with the club and the National Team.” Memories from the world cup? ‘’From the South Africa final I remember I was in the Valencia CF residence. We went crazy and I went out with the car to see how people were celebrating.”
"Those who know me a bit better know I’m not like a flag that moves with the wind, as they sometimes do in the Spanish media; when you win a game, everything is good, and when you lose, everything is negative."
Physical state "I’ve played many games this year and haven’t had a winter break. It’s normal that you feel a little tired sometimes but, at the moment, I feel very well and very happy at Real Madrid."
