Casemiro: Second half was amazing


Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has hailed his team mates after their sensational second half performance against Celta Vigo saw them triumph 7-1.

Leading 1-0 at the break through Pepe’s goal, Los Blancos eased through the gears in the second period and hit the heights rarely seen this season.

Ronaldo netted four goals to take him past 350 for the club, while Gareth Bale made a goalscoring return to the side. Jese Rodriguez also found the net in an emphatic win for Zinedine Zidane’s side.

In quotes published on the official club website, Brazilian midfielder Casemiro said the second half was perfect.

“It was a great game from the entire team and we showed that we are strong at home. We played against a great side, that play very well, and we have to value our win. The second half was an amazing game, we all played better, and the tactics fitted better. This is the way forward, we have to show that we are Real Madrid and that we will keep fighting,” he stated.

He went on to hail Cristiano Ronaldo, who now has 27 league goals to his name this season.

“Cristiano is an out of this world player, we know that already and at any moment he can score goals. He is the best in the world and we are used to that. He is a goal machine. He keeps working hard as always to help Madrid,” he added.
