Real Madrid obtained a huge away win against Valladolid this Sunday thanks to a late goal by Nacho Fernandez. Captain Sergio Ramos addressed the media after the game and was satisfied with the three points.

“We’re happy with our goal, which was to get three points and go top of the table, and now it’s time to continue picking up points. It’s very early and the league season is very long, every time its more complicated and you can drop points anywhere and against any opponent. We’re going to go from match to match, trying to pick up three points each time and continue this dynamic, playing with personality, with a lot of initiative so that everyone can see Real Madrid playing with commitment and identity to try to achieve the goals,” said Ramos.

The defender was asked about Nacho’s celebration. Nacho hugged with Zinedine Zidane and later admitted that the French coach had just told him to go to the near post for that play.

“It’s very good, it sums up the unity in the group. It’s fundamental, that balance helps the unity of the group and although there are players who play less, we must all be prepared because we are equally important, regardless of the minutes we play,” added Ramos.

Real Madrid will play a crucial Madrid Derby against Atletico de Madrid next Saturday but first they will visit Zaragoza for the Copa del Rey’s Round of 16 on Wednesday.
