Loaned to Real for two years, Martin Odegaard left his total footballer seal last night at the Bernabéu. The Norwegian, master and lord of the game during the 64 minutes he was on the field, made the 0-1, gave a magical assistance to Isak – annulled both from the Swedish by the VAR – and left a recital of controls, passes, pause , races and dribbles that will surely be a before and after in his early career and facing his future in Madrid
The white canterano left cheered, signed in 2015 for only 16 years. His passage through Castile generated some doubts, probably unfair if it was taken into account that Odegaard landed in the capital of Spain at a young age and came from a minor football, such as Norwegian. His year and a half in the subsidiary went unnoticed, like the two consecutive preseason he made with the first team. To mature, Real Madrid, his father and agent, and the player himself, considered it more appropriate to grow out of the club. He did it in Holland, for three years. The first two in the Heerenveen (2016-2018) and the last in the Vitesse. There, he began to show the entire palette of resources for which Madrid decided to bet with him five years ago when he was a teenager.
Last summer the opportunity appeared to play at Real Sociedad, a club with a very attractive game proposal, and Madrid believed that it was their great opportunity to finish training and return as a player made and entitled to Santiago Bernabéu. And so it is.
Odegaard leads this great Royal Sheriff’s Society, and yesterday he wrote one more chapter of the white badge with players raised in La Fábrica. Martin left Santiago Bernabéu without celebrating his own goal and with the unanimous recognition of what will soon be his hobby. Last night, Odegaard shattered the door of Real Madrid. .
