Odriozola, ambitious return

Zidane is confident of recovering the Odriozola who broke it at Real Sociedad. He feels capable of fighting Carvajal for the position and wants to return to the National Team.


This season has been a before and after in Odriozola's career (San Sebastián, 24 years old). The winger already knows that he is the one chosen to compete with Carvajal next year and warns: he wants to fight. His year at Bayern, where he started out gray but is ending at a remarkably high level, gives him hope, rejoicing. And Madrid is confident that he will recover his best version, the one he showed at Real Sociedad and that made him one of the best right-backs in Europe.

Under the txuri-urdines colors he was a gamer. Climbing from the lower categories and going through the subsidiary, he ended up playing 4,736 'with the first team among all competitions. Seen in another way, he played a total of 57 games for the San Sebastian discipline. He was promoted from the subsidiary in the 2016/17 season, making his debut on matchday 18 against Málaga (0-2 victory). After two substitutions, he became a permanent fixture, immediately playing eleven games in a row. But his big year would be next. In the 2017/18 season, he played absolutely everything except five games: three due to rest and two due to injury. Of the 38 league games he started in 30, being substituted only in three.

He was from there and felt at home, but the call from Madrid made a phone ring that would change his life. His numbers led him to the Bernabéu, where he would sign a new contract until June 2024. He already has a League, a Spanish Super Cup and a Club World Cup to his credit. He is currently playing the Champions League with Bayern, a team to which he went on loan during the winter market to obtain filming. The formula is working. His rival in the quarterfinals, precisely, will be Barcelona. An extra incentive and motivation.

In Germany he has begun to meet again and comes like a shot to the final stretch of the season. Those feelings make him look with ambition on his return to Madrid. Zidane is confident that he will be able to recover the best Odriozola and he knows that if he succeeds, there is a high quality side and for a while (he is only 24 years old). For his part, the player returns effusively, feeling capable of looking at Carvajal from you to you and hungry to return to the National Team (he has not been called up since the World Cup in Russia). A few days ago, he was even selected for the UEFA ideal eleven. Odriozola shines again and that is one of the best news that Madrid could receive.
