Martin Odegaard is one of the 22 footballers who is in Malaga concentrate to prepare Spain Supercup. The Norwegian midfielder continues to work in search of an opportunity that opens the doors of ownership, although what happened in Pamplona This past weekend has done nothing but worry the talented footballer.
The Norwegian is concerned, yes, and the cause is none other than the lack of minutes in the Real Madrid. He is currently sixth in the midfielder rotation. Ahead are the non-negotiable Casemiro, Modric and Kroos, but it is also Faith Valverde and even Isco seems to have taken the lead when it comes to entering the second half as a shock.
In particular, what has bothered Odegaard is that in the duel against Osasuna, in the frozen stadium of The Sadar was Isco chosen before him to give another air to a match that had become very uphill for the whites. Real Madrid ended up drawing zero in Pamplona, something that did not sit well with the Madrid expedition.
“For me this has not been a football match. Conditions have been very difficult. I tell you the feeling that we have with everything that has happened. We do not know when we will return, tomorrow or the day after. It wasn’t a football game today. We will forget and think about Wednesday, “he explained. Zidane at a press conference, making evident the anger of staff and players before the media.
Nobody liked what happened in El Sadar, but especially an Odegaard who once again ran out of minutes, when other meringues players like Fede Valverde entered the field of play, Mariano and the aforementioned Isco, who entered the field to replace Modric.
367 minutes spread over nine games is the balance of the Nordic so far this 2020/2021 season. He started the course as a starter before Real society and Betis, to later lose this condition and later chain several injuries, in addition to the loss for being positive for coronavirus.
The Norwegian international has only returned to savor the honeys of ownership on two other occasions: against him Villarreal, in The league, on November 21 and in front of the Shakhtar Donetsk, in the Champions League, on December 1. This duel of the highest continental competition was the last since the starting eleven for him, being a substitute in six games since then and missing another three due to injury.
To see the last minutes of Martin Odegaard with the Real Madrid elastic, it is not necessary to go back much, it was on January 2 of this new 2021 in the match against him Celtic vigo of the domestic championship. Although then he was only on the green for five minutes.
It is precisely that, minutes, what Odegaard asks of Zidane. The midfielder opted to return to Real Madrid when he still had a year left with the San Sebastian entity. In the Real Sociedad he was triumphing, becoming a reference player of the white-blue and in one of the great sensations of the 2019/2020 season in La Liga.
However, the 22-year-old ended up abandoning Saint Sebastian to head back to the capital after his assignments in Holland -at Speed and in the Heerenveen– and his year at the Royal Society. It was Zidane who convinced him to come back now and now Odegaard feels disappointed at the lack of prominence he is having in the Madrid ranks.
Zidane has asked the footballer to calm down. He has told him that he is going to be a very important player at Real Madrid, that he is going to play and that he will end up having his chances. A message of calm and hope for an Odegaard who shares concerns with the club itself. From the noble zone they also maintain concern about the lack of minute of the Norwegian, since he was the only signing, in quotes, of Real Madrid. Which generated a lot of illusion among the fans, who hope to see their best version as soon as possible.
