I love scoring at the Santiago Bernabeu – Jese Rodriguez


Jese Rodriguez has said there is nothing better than scoring for Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Los Blancos striker scored in Real’s 3-0 win over Eibar on Saturday afternoon as they kept up the pressure on Barcelona in the race for La Liga.

It was another great moment for the young forward who missed nine months of football because of a serious knee injury.  Speaking to reporters after the game, Jese was quick to thank his manager, team mates and the fans for the support they have given him in recent months.

“I have always felt the support of my team mates, manager and the president. They are great players, great team mates, and I feel really at ease with all of them,” he stated.

He continued: “Scoring is incredible and even more so at the Bernabéu. It was an individual move and I like that kind of play. We are here to do that and we have to keep working. It was a deceptively difficult game because Éibar closed down at the back and made life difficult for us.”

Jese then spoke about the upcoming games with Atletico de Madrid in the Champions League, stating the team goes into the encounters full of confidence.

“We go to the Calderón with high hopes and the motivation to get a good result. It is a difficult ground to play at but we really have to go for it. We want to show that we are the champions of Europe.”
