The Japan international is currently on loan at Villarreal after joining Los Blancos in summer 2019.

The winning expectation at Real Madrid is huge

Takefusa Kubo admitted that he was left a little overwhelmed by the pressure to win at Real Madrid. The Japan international is currently on loan at Villarreal after joining Los Blancos in summer 2019. The teenager spent his preseason with Los Blancos in 2019 before leaving for Real Mallorca on loan, but even that was enough to leave its mark. “The expectation of winning at Real Madrid is huge,” Kubo told reporters. “It’s terrible. They always win, and when they don’t, the pressure on the next game is usually greater.” Kubo caught the eye when he came back to Spain, being one of the few Japanese players in LaLiga at the moment. “There are not many players playing in Spain at the minute,” Kubo said of his compatriots. “It’s a special league for Japanese players and those who play here, and we always get quite a lot of attention.”

It has always been football and home for Kubo

Now under the guidance of Unai Emery at Villarreal, Kubo is enjoying the quiet of where he lives. “I am not alone to go out much: it has always been football, home, football, home”…” Kubo added. “Sometimes in the evenings I would meet with my teammates or a friend. You can’t now. I live in Benicassim, a quiet place, and it is almost better than I’m with fewer people. Silence is the best at the moment. Because we have the UEFA Europa League, some have the Champions League… I come home, and there is always a game on and I love to watch them, focusing on some of the players. So, I enjoy watching football, although I don’t go out.”

“I loved going to sea in Mallorca to swim, explore a little… But this summer we couldn’t do that. I was in Japan, but I stayed at home every day due to quarantine regulations.”
