In spite of this, little by little has gone going in in dynamics and, although it seems that to the charrúa already is indisputable for Zidane, Luka keeps on being important. He same said to feel better, happy and with win.

"I am very happy in Madrid. With the red card and the injuries was missing me take rhythm. Now I am well physically and enjoying of the football and of the Madrid as never. The only that need is to play and have rhythm to show what always have showed", admitted.
