Dani explained that players at the club are so focused on working on the field that they barely reveal themselves in individual dialogues.
It’s not easy to make friends at Real
Dani Carvajal revealed how difficult it was to make friends in his early years as a first-team player at Real Madrid. Dani explained that players at the club are so focused on working on the field that they barely reveal themselves in individual dialogues. “It’s not easy to make friends at Los Blancos,” the Spaniard told reporters. “When I went to Bayer 04 Leverkusen, where the average age was 23 years, it was easier. We all shared hobbies. We had no wives or children. At Real Madrid, everyone has a life, and this is such an established club in which everyone is fighting so that there is no more time. So, personal life is kept on the sidelines.” Dani also broke Zinedine Zidane’s dignity as a coach and revealed the secret of his success. “His greatest virtue is the calmness that he conveys to us,” he added.
Zizou makes the team feel that they can all do their part
“He never changes, and whether things go right or wrong, he keeps a cool head. That is what gives the players a lot of peace of mind. Also, his strong point is that he has a lot of trust in the squad. Zidane makes us feel that we can all do our part, which makes him a winning squad. I have won many trophies with him and learn from his experience every day”. The Spanish right-back won four Champions League trophies with Real Madrid, but he wants more. “I would love to win a lot of titles and would like to retire in white. I have won everything with Real Madrid, and, at the title level, it’s hard to ask for more. But I would like to win the fifth Champions League with Real Madrid.
“This time will be remembered as one of the club’s top three.” Carvajal also pointed out that Neymar is the forward he is struggling to defend the most. “Neymar is the striker who was the hardest to defend. He is a very elusive player, technically excellent. He attacks space. He’s going to ask for it, and he can score. It’s difficult to defend him.”
