Real Madrid midfielder Isco has said the players are determined to get even better having just set a new record for the most consecutive wins.
Los Blancos defeated Ludogorets 4-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night to make it six wins out of six in their group, and 19 straight wins in all competitions, surpassing the 18-game winning run enjoyed by Barcelona in the 2005-06 season.
Speaking to reporters after the game, the playmaker said the team was delighted with the win and to set the new record, but wanted to keep improving and get even better.
“Theoretically this was an easy game, because they were down to ten men very quickly, after the penalty was given. Hopefully this winning streak keeps going,” he said.
And he added: “A night like tonight is one to celebrate. That’s nineteen straight victories from a team that keeps wanting to be even better. Our aim is to win the greatest number of wins we can.”
When asked about manager Carlo Ancelotti’s rotation of the squad, Isco said the Italian was doing well to manage the players and keep them all fresh, particularly with the challenges that lie ahead.
“The boss knows how to manage the squad well and hopefully there won’t be any troubles [with more injuries] between now and the end of the season.”
