The midfielder enjoyed a dig at former coach Zinedine Zidane after featuring the 2-0 triumph.
Ceballos said, "This question is for Zizou, I do not know if he lacks confidence, he bet on other players, I do not have to reproach anything, he is a coach who did not make me play but, on an individual level, I matured a lot and it was a good experience for me.
"I came out reinforced from last year."
The youngster also spoke of former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
"Cristiano is no longer there, he is not going to contribute anything to the team, what he says will not affect us, vice versa, we know what (Julen) Lopetegui wants from us, we practice it in training and we try to take it to the field."
