Borja Mayoral: Debut was unforgettable


Young Real Madrid forward Borja Mayoral says his debut for the club against Las Palmas was ‘unforgettable’.

The 18-year-old replaced Toni Kroos late on in the 3-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu, a win that sees Real remain top of the pile on goal difference ahead of fierce rivals Barcelona.

Having grown up in the youth teams at the club, Mayoral said it was always his ambition to pull on the famous white jersey at home. Having been on the bench and training with the first team squad this season, he finally got in on the action.

Speaking afterwards, an elated Mayoral told journalists it was a day he would never forget.

“For me it is an unforgettable day. I felt really satisfied to come on. This comes after many years of sacrifice. I’m very happy. Its a dream to make my debut with this side. I’ve been on the bench many times before and I finally made my debut,” he commented.

And he added that the first team players have all been very welcoming towards him.

“I have already participated in lots of training sessions. They have treated me extremely well: they congratulated me. They all signed my shirt and left me messages. I will hang it up in my room. We had a good game,” he stated.
