Real Madrid left back Marcelo says the players know they can still improve and will work hard to do so after the win over Sporting Gijon at the weekend.
Los Blancs ran out 5-1 winners at the Santiago Bernabeu thanks to two goals each from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. Gareth Bale was also on the scoresheet again to ensure Zinedine Zidane has a 100% winning record so far as Real boss.
Real are playing catch up on Barcelona and Atletico de Madrid in the league but speaking to reporters after the match Marcelo said he was confident the team would still improve in the coming weeks.
“The result is clear and resounding but we worked a lot. Sporting are a difficult side, they know how to play and we worked well. In our head we are clear about what the manager requests of us, which is playing and having possession in the opponent’s half. We managed to do that and to try and recover the ball as quickly as possible,” the left back said.
And he added: “Players are always happy when they win and things turn out well. We are happy and the aim is to improve with every training session and every game in order to win something important this season.”
