"With this shield you can not settle, I want to win all the titles with the team," said the midfielder in 'Real Madrid Connect'.
“When I wear the Real Madrid shirt there is always a tickle in my belly. I think it always has to be. It's nice. I remember an anecdote before the derby against Atlético. The coach had given eleven and I was there. Casemiro approached me and told me that if I was nervous and I looked at my hand and I was shaking. ”
Memories of its beginnings
“What I liked most was playing in the street with my friends. That was what made me happy and the most fun. Then I started as a professional at Peñarol. I was from school and I remember it as something special too. It has happened to me quickly. I never imagined playing in a team like Real Madrid. Now I try to keep growing and take advantage of this unique opportunity. Only I have the responsibility for this dream to continue and hopefully it never ends. ”
"It was excellent. I was entering the locker room that had won many Champions and that they receive you in the same way that any other is something that satisfies you a lot, it fills you with pride and joy. Modric or Kroos wrapped me up from the beginning and that flatters me a lot. Today I share jokes but at first I had a lot of respect for them. I feel them as older brothers because of how they advise and treat me. They are exemplary people and I will always be grateful. ”
“I learn from everyone. Each player has a history within the club. They come to advise you and listen to me. I admire Casemiro very much and I will always be grateful. It's like a father to me. It is fun to train with my classmates. I always highlight Sergio for his strength as a captain and command voice, and Marcelo who always has a smile. "
“I remember when they called me. I could not believe it. I did not understand anything. I could debut. I entered and Marcelo scored a goal. I will never forget it and it has to serve as my motivation. ”
"It's nice. The Club World Cup was the first and will be the first of many. I won a title with people I saw on television years ago. I would love to be here for many years and achieve many titles for both the club and me. ”
Real Madrid in Uruguay
“It looks like something inexplicable, unattainable. It is very difficult for Uruguayans to come to play here. When I play it is as if 3 million did. There are many people who support Real Madrid in Uruguay. ”
“It helps me to get the best I have, not to hide, to show why the coach puts me on. I thank you for the advice you give me as well as the rest of my classmates. That Zidane speaks of me well seems great to me. ”
“First continue to grow as a person and as a player. With this shield you cannot conform. I won a Club World Cup and I want to win everything that comes. There is much to go. ”
