Real Madrid officially presented Eder Militao at a press conference today and the young Brazilian is eager to make his debut for Los Blancos.
Eder Militao was officially introduced as a Real Madrid player this afternoon. The young defender is part of the club’s latest spending spree and cost the club 50 million Euros when he signed from FC Porto.
While physically exhausted, Eder Militao was beaming and happy to be at a club he always dreamed of playing. Following a traditional welcoming speech by Florentino Perez, the Brazilian spoke about how happy it made him when he signed for the club.
“When I heard the news, I was very happy. I saw that my work was rewarded, inevitably I did not think about it. I immediately pushed for it to be done. I saw myself already playing for the best club in the world.”
The youngster now faces competition to break into the starting XI. The likes of Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Nacho and Jesus Vallejo aren’t going to be easy competition. However, Eder Militao says that he will do what the coach tells him to do.
“I am aware that there will be a lot of competition. I came to do a job. It will not be easy, I will do what the coach asks me. If he gives me the opportunity, I’ll do a good job. Start or not, that’s the coach who decides,” he said according to Foot Mercato.
“If he wants me to play, I will play. I’ll keep my feet on the ground. The decision doesn’t belong to me. I’m a versatile player who plays with passion. I don’t like losing. I’m always trying to get the best out of myself. I’m very competitive.”
And Eder Militao revealed that although he hasn’t spoken with Zidane but is hopeful that he will do so in the coming days.
“I have not yet spoken with Zidane, I want to work with him. I hope that everything will be fine and that we will be able to do well.”
