[Alvaro Arbeloa on Mesut Ozil] Ozil is a scandalously good player. I wouldn’t say the media jumped on board too quickly. In fact, you’ve taken your time to realise just how good he is. Then again, we see him in training every day, you only see him once a week. We knew he was special straight away. Sometimes it can seem like Ronaldo is the only player here, but there are other good players too – and Ozil is bueno, bueno

[The sale of Mesut Ozil] It’s a shame, It’s a big loss to the dressing room, on a footballing level and on a personal level. There’s no player like him in the world. He makes the difference on the pitch

[Alvaro Arbeloa says Real Madrid are clearly better than Barcelona] Madrid are clearly better than Barcelona because it’s a results business and they’ve been excellent. It’s difficult to win the Champions League without being the best, but to win three in a row or four in five years, you have to be really good and know how to perform in key moments. What [Zinedine Zidane] has done, I don’t know when we’ll see something like it again

[Zidane – a Real legend from his playing days – has helped to keep Madrid in the hunt for major honours] I’m a big fan of the coach, but I’m more of a fan of Jose. I consider him a friend. He was a coach with whom I learned, enjoyed and worked like an animal. You can’t stop laughing with him because he has a thousand anecdotes. He’s a great guy and one of those guys who’s worth [working with]. He made a big impact on me, both professionally and personally. He was able to demand you to train until death and then tell you jokes and be one of us. He was a star like Cristiano [Ronaldo], it’s difficult to find someone who is as media-friendly as the players

[Alvaro Arbeloa says Eden Hazard has returned to the fold at Real Madrid like an airplane] I imagine that, with Marco [Asensio], there will have to be more care, giving him minutes little by little. You have to be more careful with him than with Eden [Hazard], who has returned like an airplane. He is going to win us many games

I think there won’t be many changes in this first XI, but then [Zidane] will make three or four changes in each game. The Zidane method will return for sure. He has been important throughout his time [at Real Madrid] and we are going to see it now. With Zidane he has a lot of confidence. And we have recovered Hazard and Asensio, which is very important
