Casemiro: We deserve credit for win


Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro says the players deserve credit for their win at Celta Vigo.

Los Blancos came away with a 3-1 win that put them top of the table and saw them extend their unbeaten run in all competitions this season to 12 games. Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Danilo and Marcelo sealed the points for Rafa Benitez’ team.

Celta had been unbeaten in the league until Saturday and topped the table. After a big trip to Paris in the Champions League this week, a game at Vigo was always going to be tough.

And talking to journalists afterwards, Brazilian Casemiro said the players had to work had for the win.

“We knew that it was going to be a difficult game, because they’re strong at home. The team deserve credit for getting this win. We were tired because we’d played a tough match on Wednesday and this is a hard place to come to, and we were up against a good side who I’m sure will be up there in the table. Hopefully we can win every time out, and can stay unbeaten and top of the league,” he said.

He went on to say that the team must keep working hard if they want to stay on top.

“Now we have to carry on working hard. Since I returned to the club, the backroom team have given me a lot of confidence and that’s important for me. I want to keep on working hard to ensure I’m here for a long time to come,” he commented.
