San Sebastián, Jun 2 . .- Real Sociedad player Martin Odegaard was confident this Tuesday that the team can maintain the level exhibited before the break and qualify for third place, as his goal and that of the team is “to play the Champions League next year”.
“It is a dream for all footballers to play the Champions League and it is what we want to do next year,” acknowledged the Norwegian footballer in statements to the club’s website, in an interview in which, beyond this comment on the next season, he avoided solving the doubt about his destiny the next season.
Odegaard, who belongs to Real Madrid, signed a year of assignment at Real, although the agreement between the two clubs was for two seasons and the player has expressed on more than one occasion his desire to fulfill it.
However, the explosion of the midfielder at Real and the restrictions of the market make the Txuriurdin fans fear that Real Madrid intends to recover it this summer, although Real football director Roberto Olabe was “moderately optimistic” last week “on the permanence of Odegaard in San Sebastián.
In his appearance today, the Norwegian has stated that Real “is where it has to be, fighting to get into one of those places” in conflict, among others, with Sevilla and Getafe, with the two most distant.
“It will be difficult to do something with Madrid or Barca but against the rest we can do things well to finish third or fourth,” he said.
He also admitted that the team’s performance is unknown after several months without exercising together, but he hoped to maintain the level exhibited until the halt by the health crisis.
The Norwegian player has had a hard time in the confinement stage because “the family was in Norway” and he had to face it alone, an experience he has left behind and has mutated into “very good feelings” on a personal level, especially since the moment when group training began.
