Varane: “We were able to dig in and go on to win it”
“I always try and help the team and I managed to do so with a brace today”, said the defender.
Real Madrid clinched victory at El Alcoraz (1-2) on LaLiga matchday 22 and Varane, the key man after netting a brace, reflected: “It’s a hugely important win. When Huesca were piling the pressure on we were able to dig in and go on to win it. We know we’re in a tough spell, with a lot of injuries, and that’s our reality at the moment. We have to accept it and our aim is to win our upcoming games”.
“I’m happy, it’s been a long time since I scored for Madrid. I always try and help the team and today I managed to do so with a brace, I’m really pleased. When we’re going through a rough patch and we go a goal down we have to show real character. You have to keep believing until the end. That’s why I pushed up top today and the goals went in for me”.
“That’s a team thing, we ran for each other today and during the difficult moments we refused to let our heads drop. We kept on with the intention of winning the game and asserting control. We have to change our run of form and that comes by winning games and staying positive. Confidence also helps a great deal, which makes today’s victory all the more important”.
“When you’re up against it you have to show character and fight hard as a team. If we continue like this, we’ll finish the season strongly”.
