Ferland mendy has already started his second season as a soccer player Real Madrid and he has done so with two consecutive starts. The French side arrived in the summer of 2019 at the White House to compete with Marcelo for a position. Little by little he has been gaining ground to the second captain and it seems that he will be the starting theoretical in the big events throughout 2020/2021.
After a year, the defender has spoken with Telefoot to reveal his sensations when he landed on the Santiago Bernabeu. “When I signed with Real Madrid I was very afraid of my signing. It is very difficult to get here, but I adapted quickly and it seems that in the end it has turned out well.”

It must be remembered that Zizou returned to the merengue bench in March 2019 and that at that time it was Sergio Reguilon the one who had come to relegate Marcelo to the background.
