Dani Carvajal, a winger for Real Madrid and the national team, spoke about some of the important moments in his career and acknowledged that he is not “aware of the value of having won five Champions Leagues and that over time it will give him “even more value”.
“Imagining being in Madrid’s first team was already a dream for me. So to have won five Champions Leagues, to be in one of the golden eras of the club, is something fantastic. And I think that with time I will give it even more value. I am not aware of everything that I am achieving,” Carvajal said at the presentation ceremony as Ok Mobility ambassador.
The defender and fourth captain of Real Madrid spoke about the youngsters and their arrival in elite sport.
“The new generations have much more self-confidence, now everything is much closer. But it is true that, because of the way society is now, between social networks, they want to be footballers at the age of 15 or 16, and there are many who get confused”, explained Carvajal.
“When I went up to the first team I saw Iker and Cristiano as unattainable beings and just by saying hello you would die of shame”, added.
The man from Madrid also spoke about the new competition formats such as the Super League.
“People want matches of the highest level as happens in tennis, basketball or the SuperBowl”he pointed.
“Our president (Florentino Pérez), due to the experience he has in business, makes calculations, and together with his team they are seeing that difficult times are coming,” Carvajal observed.
“It is being seen that financially the tickets are quite high for young people and that watching football is being lost among those under 30 years of age. There is not so much audience, television rights are going to drop, everything goes up… A negative balance is difficult to fight”, concluded Dani Carvajal.
Dani Carvajal has already completed 374 games, scoring seven times and assisting 59 times.
