Still plenty of room for improvement, says Capello

MADRID, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello said there was still plenty of room for improvement despite his side's crushing 5-1 win over Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.

'This team can and must improve in many areas,' the Italian told a news conference. 'We let them have too many chances and not all our opponents will be so generous to us.

'I think we made some defensive errors. They have a lot of quality and pace on the break and there were a few things I didn't like at the back.'

Capello paid special tribute to Raul whose two goals were his first in the Real shirt since October last year and took his tally to 53 in the Champions League.

'Raul is a talisman for Real Madrid and a very important player for this team. I think you have to value a player for everything he does and not just the number of goals he scores,' said the coach.

The Italian also had words of praise for his other two-goal striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, whose participation in the match was in doubt after spending the night at the side of his wife who gave birth in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

'He didn't sleep last night and had only a short siesta this afternoon but he was certainly wide awake for this game,' said Capello.

'It has been an unbelievable day for me,' the former Manchester United player told Real Madrid television.

'I didn't get much sleep last night and it has been a long day after hooking up with the team. But I couldn't be happier right now. I told my wife that I'd score tonight and in the end I got two.'

Dynamo have conceded nine goals in their opening two Champions League games and coach Anatoly Demyanenko was furious with another ragged performance.

'Our defence was very poor indeed and Real Madrid took full advantage,' he said. 'Each team had its chances but they took theirs and we didn't.

'Our players should have fought much harder. Real are a very good team but we made a host of very serious mistakes.'
