Saturday quote round-up is here. Today, Gareth Bale talks about his efficient track record at Anoeta; and Morata, through no real surprise, makes it clear he left for more playing time
"We must keep calm and keeping going game by game," Bale said Friday at a sponsorship event in Madrid.
"We had a good start to the season with the two Super Cups, but we want to keep winning things. At Madrid we always want to win everything."
Madrid are away to high-flying Real Sociedad on Sunday – the visitors level on points with Barca after three games.
"It has been a good stadium for me," he said. "The most important thing is that we win the game, and get the points to climb the table."
"Zidane wanted me to stay and I was happy in Madrid. But I couldn't stay to be a substitute," Morata told the Daily Mail.
"You reach a point that you need to play, to grow up, to escape a comfort zone. It's about being comfortable. I don't want that. I am ambitious and hungry to succeed.
"For Spain, the more I play, the more goals I score, the more chance I have of making the World Cup and starting games."
"I had various offers, not only Chelsea and Manchester United but also from different leagues," he said. "It was a good situation for me. The most important and best conversation I had was with Conte, he wanted me to come here.
"At the start of the summer, I didn't know that Chelsea were interested in me. I thought they were in for a different player. Maybe Lukaku or maybe someone else, I don't know. I didn't think the option of Chelsea was open.
"But I spoke with Conte several times and not only this summer. I felt in debt to him. He signed me for Juventus but left very quickly to manage Italy. I always wanted to play for him after that. It was only two months with him but it felt like I'd known him forever. When I knew he wanted me this summer, I didn't think twice. I did everything I could to make the move happen.
"Last summer, it was close. Cesar Azpilicueta was a bit annoyed because he had already started house-hunting for me. We'd even got estate agents on board. This time Cesar has sorted everything!
"When I spoke to Conte last summer, I said 'If I'm going to leave Real Madrid, it will only be for Chelsea'."
"If I score every game with my head, no problem. I don't care if it's a bobble off my knee or it goes in off my a***, a goal is a goal!" he said.
"At Real Madrid, I did heading drills with Cristiano Ronaldo. You see him go up for headers, that spring and power, he is a real beast. At Juventus, I saw Fernando Llorente, how he finds space and directs his headers.
"I like the physical challenge. Last week, I played against Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire – big guys. Cesc Fabregas was putting in good corners that I thought I could get to and bury but there were some coming in and I couldn’t even get a jump up against those guys.
"But then I got between them to score. You have to be clever. I'm not worried. At Juve, I trained against Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci every day.
"I think the Italians saw this handsome kid coming from Madrid, where it is a bit softer, and it was a good education. They were great mentors."
