Thomas Partey eyes 'greater' season with Atletico Madrid

Gareth Bale

Following Real Madrid's UEFA Super Cup loss to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night, a Los Blancos star has insisted that while Cristiano Ronaldo can not be replaced, the team must forget about him.

Real lost stability in midfield when Casemiro was forced off due to injury and four minutes later Costa grabbed his second goal of the game to make it 2-2.

The match is Real's first competitive outing under Lopetegui, who was dramatically sacked as Spain coach on the eve of the World Cup in the summer.

His already unstable reputation could be further tarnished if Madrid fail to get off to a flying start against Getafe, especially as they face stiff competition in the title race from Atletico and Barca, who have had far busier transfer windows.

But, supposedly, that isn't what the new boss wants - and for someone under so much pressure from the start, this doesn't bode well for Real Madrid's season.

New Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui has backed Gareth Bale to excel for the European champions in the coming season.

The club, which won the 2014 Spanish league title, will hope to benefit from the boost in confidence that Griezmann received from winning the World Cup with France only a few weeks after the forward led Atletico to the Europa League title.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos says they "learn something from every defeat" and will come back string after losing the UEFA Supercup. We have two magnificent goalkeepers, and others as well.

Madrid have yet to sign a replacement for their all-time top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo after selling him to Juventus for £105m. "But I insist that we played well".

"It was time for us to win the Uefa Super Cup again, it was very important to start the season like this". "We did a lot of good things, we need to focus on that and work, work, work for what comes next".
