Madrid (EFE).- The Brazilian forward Rodrygo Goes recalled his arrival at Real Madrid and the surprise he felt, since he recognized that “everything was agreed” to become a new Barcelona player.
“When my father gave me the news…”, he recalled. “I had two shirts, one from Barça and one from Madrid, and I had to choose. It was very easy for me to choose, but since everything was already agreed with Barcelona it was a surprise, because I didn’t expect Madrid to come. It was a scare but then one of the happiest moments of my life”, he confessed in an interview with Goal.
A great friend of his compatriot Vinícius Junior, Rodrygo expressed the feeling of the Madrid dressing room in the face of a situation that has crossed limits and is causing complaints from LaLiga for racist insults in various stadiums visited by Real Madrid.
“Vinícius is very calm and is always smiling. On that topic it bothers us all a bit, not just him. But we already feel that we have nothing else to do, we don’t have much strength because we always talk and nothing changes. I try not to talk anymore, because the rest does it and nothing changes, ”he reflected.
Rodrygo out of LaLiga for lost
Rodrygo does not give LaLiga for lost, despite the distance of eleven points from Barcelona that Real Madrid can leave eight if they beat Elche on Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.
“It is always possible, we have to believe until the end. In my first season we were also many points behind Atlético and then we came back. It is very difficult but we are going to try to come back, win all the games that remain and see what happens, ”he assured.
Lastly, he gave his opinion on the option of Carlo Ancelotti becoming Brazil’s coach next June: “My relationship with Ancelotti is very good. He helps me a lot, he gives me a lot of instructions. I have seen that this is being talked about but then the news has been denied ”.
“I didn’t talk to him about this issue but if he goes to the national team I’ll be very happy. I don’t know because he was never a foreign coach, it would be a new thing because he is a very good coach but I don’t know what will happen”, he added.
