[Hamit Altintop delighted with Real Madrid debut in Champions League win over Ajax] We’ve already taken six very important points. This home win will help us. We still have to face Olympique Lyonnais here and we want to seal our passage to the next round as group leaders

[The Portuguese defender also praised Kaka, who scored a goal and assisted another in the 3-0 win] I am very happy for Kaka. The rest of the team are, too. It’s important to all of us that he plays at a high level. You can tell he feels good on the pitch and that helps us perform even better.

[Ricardo Carvalho says Eden Hazard is ‘a great signing’ for Real Madrid] He’s a great signing. I know him well and I’ve no doubt that he’ll do very well. He’s going to have more space in Spain. He’s very fast, very strong when one on one and a team like Madrid with great players will help him.

It’s true that last year didn’t go as planned. But the team came from years of winning everything and sometimes that happens in football. You have to build a great team so it’s important they start winning matches
