Signing for Real Madrid: “It changed my life so much but for good. It didn’t bother me going to Albacete, in the Segunda, so that later I coul sign for a huge club. Since I was young, I knew that I wanted to play at Real Madrid. I said ‘yes’ to Real Madrid without knowing that my cotnract was. I had a lot of big teams after me at the time but I agent asked me and I said yes.”


Zidane’s backing: “In reality, for me, it’s in the past. There are thing that happened and I don’t know why but they happened. With Zidane, I have some really good experiences and in those moments, he defended me a lot of times. He had a lot of confidence in me and I am thankful for that.”

Madrid exit: “I think about whether I failed or who failed me. At Madrid, they thought that it wasn’t my time to be there. And so, I arrived at a team who had confidence in me.”

Bernabéu return: “I took it in my stride. It was strange and I used to have a lot of habits there. On the day of the game I started to go towards the Real Madrid side. I appreciate the songs from the fans. It was a familiar feeling.”
