Uefa Super Cup 2018, Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid

Ronaldo, last week spoke to Juventus's official website about his time at the Turin club so far, stating that, "it's different here, it's like a family".

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos on Tuesday issued a warning to La Liga rivals that the absence of recently departed Cristiano Ronaldo may have hit the Los Blancos hard but that will not stop the rampant juggernaut of the Champions League winners.

"Here were have always felt like a family, so I don't know what he was talking about", he said via Marca.

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has been included in the club's travelling squad for Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup clash with Atletico Madrid in Tallinn, a further sign that the Croatia global will not leave for Inter.

"We have had lots of success, which is because we are a family and he was part of that family, which we have continued to have".

The Spanish defender stressed that there have been so many instances in the past where big players left the club but Real Madrid always found a solution and got back to the top of things. But in terms of motivation we never feel beneath anyone. It was an interesting game, with both teams having many chances.

"I don't think he will come, because Real Madrid still want to count on him". "While this team retains its spirit and hunger, mentality is more important than individual talent".

UEFA's technical observers said the goal was "an extraordinary display of technique and athleticism". "[Courtois] was at Atletico Madrid, now he is with us".

"He is the present and future of the club".

Gareth Bale's stunning overhead kick in the Champions League final has been overlooked in a goal of the season poll conducted by UEFA.

The UEFA showpiece occasion in the Estonian capital has also brought together Madrid chief Perez with Spanish football federation [RFEF] president Luis Rubiales for the first time since the pair clashed over Madrid hiring Lopetegui while he was under contract as national coach just before the summer's World Cup.
