Nacho will speak to the media on the eve of Real Madrid’s match against Shakhtar Donetsk, a match he will likely play in because of the vacancy of Sergio Ramos. Nacho feels like a key piece in in the Real Madrid squad.
I consider myself an important player. I’ve always been considered an important piece by all the coaches, by Zidane too of course.

was told that he has never been a regular starter at Real Madrid, even if he has been an important player for all of the coaches, as he mentioned.
No, seriously. If, as a child, I’d been offered all that I’ve achieved, I would have signed up for this. My dream was to play one match for Real Madrid and I’ve played more than 200.

reminded everyone that Real Madrid have won so much with Zidane.
I’ve been with this coach for a long time and we’ve done good things in each season. Now that we’re not winning so much, people think everything is being done badly and that we’re not working so well. But, it’s not true. We’ve achieved things that nobody else has achieved and we’ll fight to the end for titles this season
