The defender of Real Madrid, Ricardo Carvalho, has said that he is delighted with the way his team has started the New Year.
Real Madrid has won both the matches that it has played this year. The first was a La Liga match against Real Sociedad which Madrid won by a close margin of 4-3 and then, in the Copa Del Rey clash against Celta Vigo, the Madrid players looked in great touch. Madrid thrashed Celta by a big margin of 4-0. That match was played at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.
Cristiano Ronaldo was the hero of Madrid’s victory against Celta. He scored a hat trick and made sure that his team would secure a big victory over Celta. Semi Khedira also scored a goal for Madrid in that match.
Talking to the reporters after the match against Celta, Carvalho said, “We have started brilliantly this year and we would like to carry on this momentum throughout the second half of the league. The first half didn’t go very well for us, but, we can make up for it if we remain consistent in the second half.”
“In the match against Sociedad, we had made a few errors, but, today, the boys were at the top of their games. These types of convincing victories lift the spirit of the whole team.”
When asked about the performance of Cristiano Ronaldo, Carvalho said, “He was in great form in the first half of the league and he has carried on that form in the New Year as well. That’s very good news for us.”
“We can’t afford to lose too many games from this stage. But, we don’t need to think too much ahead either. We just need to take it match by match and see how it goes.”
