Dani Carvajal talks about his legendary status at Real Madrid: “To have won five Champions League titles is fantastic”.
Among the things Carvajal talked about at the press conference were his beginnings at Real Madrid, sharing with stars such as Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo and what the future of soccer will be.
Dani Carvajal, Real Madrid and national team fullback, talked about some of the important moments of his career and acknowledged that he is not “aware of the value of having won five Champions League titles and that with time it will give him “even more value”.
Carvajal, who currently serves as Real Madrid’s fourth captain, spoke about youth and his arrival in elite sport.
“To imagine being in Madrid’s first team was already a dream for me. So to have won five Champions League titles, to be in one of the club’s golden eras, is fantastic. And I think that with time I will give it even more value. I’m not aware of everything I’m achieving,” said Carvajal at the presentation ceremony as an ambassador for Ok Mobility.
“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 15 or 16 years old, and there are many who are confused,” explained Carvajal.
“When I was coming up to the first team, I saw Iker and Cristiano as unattainable beings and just by greeting them you would die of embarrassment,” he added.
The Madrid native also spoke about new competition formats such as the Superliga.
“People want matches of the highest level, as happens in tennis, basketball or the Super Bowl,” he said.
“Our president (Florentino Pérez), because of the experience he has in business, makes calculations, and together with his team they are seeing that difficult times are going to come,” Carvajal observed.
“We are seeing that the tickets are quite high for young people and that soccer is being lost among the under-30s. There is not as much audience, television rights are going down, everything is going up… A negative balance is complicated to combat,” concluded Dani Carvajal.
