Goalkeeper Navas should have done better and he probably would not have started the match had new £31.5million signing Thibaut Courtois, who was watching from the stands, been registered to play.

He added: "The past does not matter with Gareth nor any players, selections will be upon what I see in terms of quality, attitude, work rate. The decision has been made to move on to a new phase and I hope all goes well for him and for us", he said.

Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro admits they missed club-record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo in their UEFA Super Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid.

The composition of Atletico Madrid for the first time in history more than part of the real world. This was also Julen Lopetegui's first competitive match as Real Madrid's head coach, and it ended disappointingly.

Valencia are gearing up for a return to the Champions League and have moved to strengthen in attack, with French striker Kevin Gameiro joining from Atletico for a reported 16 million euros.

Real had won the trophy under Zidane in each of the last two years, and emerged victorious against their neighbours in the Champions League finals of 2014 and 2016.

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.
