"It's normal that at times your body fails you. Luckily I have had only small problems. It's normal; many players have been injured. The important thing is that I feel good."The final:
"We have worked all season to reach this final. I'm happy to be in my first Champions League final with Real. I hope we go into the game raring to go, the fans behind us, with their support and with the Portuguese behind Pepe, Coentrao and myself."
"Winning is always good, to keep you on form emotionally. Atlético are very happy and excited about winning la Liga and go into the game on a high. But a final is something different. It's 50-50."
