Daniel Carvajal has hailed the Real Madrid fans for getting behind the team despite recent disappointments.
Los Blancos beat Celta Vigo 7-1 on Saturday afternoon at the Santiago Bernabeu to help erase the memories of the painful defeat to Atletico de Madrid last weekend.
The fans were getting restless towards the end of the first half as Real leas by just the one goal, but they blew away the visitors with six second half strikes, leaving their followers in fine voice and positive about the team once more.
“The fans got behind us. Unfortunately our last home game was a defeat in a derby game and fans were behind us. The fans are demanding and in the first half, where it was difficult to open the scoring, perhaps they became a little frustrated, but in the second half everything went well. We tried to respond as best we could and I think that today everyone will be going home happy,” Carvajal was quoted by the club’s official website.
The right back also hailed Cristiano Ronaldo following his four-goal haul and said he hopes the Portuguese can keep up his form as Real go for Champions League glory.
He stated: “You have to congratulate him. We know that he is the best in the world and I hope he keeps scoring and helps us to win the Champions League at the end of the season. We are going to give absolutely everything and in La Liga we will try to keep up the intensity and compete at the top level in order to tackle the Champions League with the greatest guarantees for success”.
