Kubo: Zidane wants me to stay at Real Madrid this season

Real Madrid wonder kid Takefusa Kubo talked to a Japanese TV and explained his decision to go away the club on a loan deal to Mallorca this past summer.

“When our training camp in North America ended, Zidane told me that he wanted me to remain in Real Madrid this season, but I talked to him and told him that if a chance to play more minutes was coming my way, I’d wish to leave on loan,” says Kubo.

So far, this loan deal to Mallorca has produced mixed results. Kubo has provided glimpses of brilliance and it’s clear that he seems destined to be a top-quality player. However, he hasn’t been receiving minutes as consistently because it was expected, so Real Madrid will surely hope that he can become an undisputed starter for Mallorca during the last half of the season.

Kubo talked about his first days in Real Madrid also.

“I was so nervous before my first training session with Real Madrid, I used to be scared of losing my confidence. But I started training with my teammates every day and that I got won't to the team little by little,” explains the young talent.

Kubo also explained his strengths as a player.

“I can receive the ball between the defensive position and therefore the midfield and that I can dribble past opponents. I consider myself a sensible player in making decisions. I’m also faster every week, so I also can counterattack. I prefer to possess the ball and that I think I can play any style and tactic,” concludes Kubo.

Reports from the Spanish press suggest that the talented attacker could join Real Sociedad on yet one more loan deal next season, replacing Martin Odegaard, who would return to Real Madrid.
