Rodrygo Goes Speaking
“On my debut for Real Madrid, pre-season, I scored a free-kick against Bayern. I celebrated, then I arrived in the dressing room. Marcelo & Nacho told me ‘if you’re losing and you score a goal, take the ball and go to center, don’t celebrate’.”
“If the biggest rivalry is with Barcelona or Atlético? It’s Barcelona, but I think Real Madrid has no rival, they say ‘Our biggest rival is Real Madrid’ and we don’t even care about them.”
“The reserve goalkeeper on the bench said ‘he (Benzema) is going to chip it’ I thought ‘no… is he going to chip it in a serious match like that?’ then he went there and chipped it.”
“People ask me what if one day I leave Real Madrid? Well, I always want to move up in my career, I moved up from Santos to Real Madrid. But at Real Madrid, where will I go higher?”
”I got there to the physio and he Modric was lying on the stretcher doing massage, I said ’Again, every day there’ he replied ‘I want to see if you reach 37 playing like this, then.'”
