Real Madrid coach Lopetegui: Manner of Leganes win proof of players' attitude

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui was delighted with their 4-1 win over Leganes.

Karim Benzema (2), Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos struck for the hosts.

Lopetegui declared afterwards: “We played well aside from a small spell in the first half. They were able to catch us by surprise and get the penalty, we were rushing things a bit. In the second half though, the team played well generally, with goals, chances and conceding very little to the opposition.

“We're getting to know each other better as time goes by and we're able to instil this collective attitude of attacking and defending as a team. The players are understanding what we ask of them very well and they have the ability to improve further.

"Now we'll lose a load of players to international duty, but training is a chance to keep growing every day. Ratings are best saved for the end of the season, I'll focus on the hunger and the passion this group has shown to work hard. They want to work and improve in every training session and we're thrilled with their attitude."
