New Getafe signing Alvaro Medran has said he owes Real Madrid everything as he looks to build his future in the top flight.
The 21-year-old made the switch from Real Madrid Castilla to their city neighbours this week and in his first interview with Getafe, told reporters how he appreciated everything the coaches at his old club had done for him.
With his path to first team football blocked, Medran decided it was for the best to move away from the 10-time Champions League winners.
“I appreciate the confidence they had in me and to Real Madrid for the skills they’ve given me in order to play here, in the Primera Division. It’s a great opportunity for me,” he commented.
Medran went on to say he was inspired both other players who have left Real Madrid to establish themselves elsewhere in the Spanish top flight and is hoping to emulate them.
“I was influenced by the other Real Madrid players who have grown here as footballers and my talk with the manager gave me confidence. He played a great game in Elche and he’s coming here with the same idea.
“I haven’t stopped working out during my holiday and I’m progressing very well. I think that I’ll be able to train alongside the team in one to two weeks,” he added.
