Cristiano Ronaldo: "I Always Speak On The Pitch"

Casillas, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos spoke to the press after the match against José Mourinho's Chelsea. Some of them tried to get some cheap headlines with all the turmoil around the Portuguese coach and his former roster, but the players didn't bite the bait.

Real Madrid beat Chelsea in quite a good fashion, and after the game it was time for Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas to speak to the media present at SunLife Stadium. This is what Ronaldo had to say after his two goals:

We deserved to win, we played really well. The preseason is the right time to test some things and that's what we're doing. I'm playing almost in my position and I feel comfortable. I hope this is the year we win La Décima, but there's a long way to go. My celebration? I looked to my bench, I always speak on the pitch, I don't care about things on the outside, I try to help Madrid and those things don't hurt me.

Sergio Ramos also shared his views:

Yes, we deserved to win. It's good to win this tournament to build momentum. I'm not surprised about Cristiano, he always stands tall for the team and gives his best for us. We know how hard it is to play against Chelsea physycally. They're really demanding. [About Mourinho] We are not the ones creating this turmoil, it is all on you. We always give our best against every rival, not only against Chelsea because Mourinho is their coach. I have not met him yet, but I did see some of his staff and I said hello to them. I don't have bad blood against them, that's for losers.

Casillas played the whole game, and he spoke to the press as well:

It's always good to win before the season starts. We're working the right way and that's why we're playing well. Chelsea is a great team that should be competing for the Champions League. We weren't thinking about revenge. Our team is what matters. I haven't seen Mourinho, if I had, I would've said hello.
