“We are where we want to be, up there, struggling to get into the Champions League, and that’s what we want, “Odegaard told reporters.
Real Sociedad improved significantly in the attack after Odegaard’s arrival
After the arrival of Martin Odegaard, Real Sociedad improved significantly in the attack, which led to the fact that the team is currently sitting in the Champions League positions, and the Norwegian midfielder believes that the team is well able to finish third or fourth. Both results would qualify for the Champions League 2020/21, but the presence of Real Madrid and Barcelona does not scare Martin. “We are where we want to be, up there, struggling to get into the Champions League, and that’s what we want, “Odegaard told reporters. “It will be tough to do something with Real and Barca, but with the rest, I think we can finish third or fourth.” For all football players, it is a dream to play in the Champions League, and it is what we want to do next year.”
Odegaard has now back for training with La Real, but the midfielder admitted that the violent period of lockdown in Spain was not comfortable. “It was a long, difficult road, my family are in Norway, and I am alone here. However, some people had worse, I am healthy, and my family too. I feel perfect, although it was a little strange to train in such small groups. Real Sociedad will play the rest of their 2019/20 matches without fans, and Odegaard believes that it will be a miss for the squad. “It will be very unusual to perform without our supporters,” he confirmed. They are essential for us, they always support us, and it makes home matches very enjoyable. “Still, there is nothing we can do about it. We must continue and win for them, even if they are at home.”
