Real Madrid wanted Odegaard to return

Martin Odegaard has revealed how he is adapting to life at Real Madrid this season. The midfielder has been recalled from a loan at Real Sociedad after an outstanding season in San Sebastian. After participating in Real Madrid’s opening fixtures of the new campaign, he’s with the Norway team preparing to face Serbia, Romania, and Northern Ireland this month. “At first, it was thought that I would spend two years at Real Sociedad, but Madrid called to say they wanted me to return,” Odegaard told journalists. “It was a natural thing to do, and it was quickly resolved. There was no drama. There was no fallout. I always had a goal and a dream to play there”. With no new signatures this summer, Odegaard’s arrival in the first squad is good news for Zinedine Zidane. “I spoke to Zidane, yes,” Odegaard added.

According to Martin, he can play in different roles

“Both he and the club wanted me to come back, and so it happened. There was no intense discussion with La Real. Madrid made it clear that they want me. So I always had it as my goal and my dream to play for them. They wanted it, and we did it”. In the first few games of this season, Odegaard played further forward under Zidane than perhaps he was used to at Real Sociedad. “We didn’t talk much about my position,” Odegaard admitted. “I can play in different roles, whether in the middle of the park or more as No.10 – where I played when there were two strikers. I can play in other systems and I will play where Zidane wants, and if I get the opportunity, it matters very little to me where I play.”

Odegaard received news last week that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, but further tests confirmed that the result was false. “It strained me a little, and I was thinking about the upcoming games, including with the national team,” said Odegaard. “It all happened overnight. Fortunately, it was a false alarm.”
