thumbnail Hello,

The former Getafe man is happy at seeing the table toppers bounce back from an uncertain start against the Aragon club, and now hopes they can continue playing positive football

Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero has urged his team to sustain their recent improvement, following the Blancos' 3-1 victory over Zaragoza in La Liga on Saturday.

The 24-year-old put in an encouraging shift at the Santiago Bernabeu in central midfield, and after helping inspire his side to the three points, he revealed the biggest challenge facing his team-mates will be not to fall back into their comfort zone.

"We do not want to go back to becoming monotonous," he continued. "We conceded a goal from our own making, but then we reacted and put in a very complete performance."

Granero then switched his focus to the match itself, and says that despite a difficult start to proceedings, which saw Madrid fall behind to a early Angel Lafita goal, he feels their hunger to win eventually prevailed.

"These games are always difficult. Zaragoza are not a bad team, and we made it hard for ourselves initially, but we managed to win," he offered.

"We will fight until the end and to try to win everything on offer."

Real Madrid have restored their eight-point lead over Barcelona in the Primera Division standings following the win, though the Catalans have a game in hand, which will be played later on Saturday evening against Villarreal.
