Real Madrid manager thinks that the quality of the players and their attitude will make it easy for them to compete in any competition, although they understand that there are some improvements to be made.

“With that attitude it always works out well, especially when you consider the quality the team has,”

Carletto said of Sunday evening’s dramatic victory at Mestalla; his charges scored twice in the final minutes to win 2-1 after conceding first.

“That spirit is the basis of the results we’ve achieved. We’ve always fought to the end.” That’s not to say there isn’t room for improvement, however. There certainly is,

he said

, “especially in the consistency of our game. In defence we’re at 60% or 70%, but so far we’ve done well. Five away games at difficult stadiums with good results shows that this team has balls.”

And about the players, who haven’t been able to play as much as they would expect, especially Asensio, he thinks that they have the right to be unhappy, but they have been acting professional, and they are trying to earn their spot in the team.

“Everyone knows what I think, putting together a lineup is complicated,”

he explained in comments carried by

Diario AS

“It may be that he’s unhappy, that’s normal. It would be abnormal for a player who doesn’t play to be happy. If Asensio, Isco, [Luka] Jovic aren’t happy, that’s fine. They don’t have to be. He trains well, and I like that. If everyone is plugged in they’ll have minutes. Isco and Jovic changed the dynamic of the team when they came on.”
