Vazquez: ‘Madrid have a great squad’

Lucas Vazquez believes Real Madrid ‘have a great squad’ and do not necessarily need new reinforcements ahead of the new season.

Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus in a €100m deal earlier this summer and only 18-year-old Vinicius Junior has arrived in attack, but the Spain international played down concerns of a lack of depth.

“We have a great squad who are shaping up well for the new season,” Vazquez is quoted as saying by Cadena Cope.

“All the players at this club are at an extremely high level and we are enjoying a strong pre-season, the training is very good.

“My own place in the team? It is up to every player to give their maximum and to convince the Coach, who then has decision to make.

“For me it was great to be captain for a few minutes (against Juventus), for someone to have come through the youth system here and to be entrusted in that way is an honour.”
