Theo: Madrid the best in the world

Theo Hernandez believes Real Madrid are the ‘best club in the world’ and has thanked his new teammates for welcoming him to the club.

The full-back made his first appearance in a Madrid shirt during Sunday’s penalty shootout loss to Manchester United, where he won a penalty during the match but dragged his effort wide during the shootout.

“Everyone has given me a warm welcome and I'm very happy to be here with them, this is the best club in the world,” Theo is quoted as saying by Marca.

“I am supported by all my teammates and especially the other Spaniards here, I get along very well with them.

“Before the match [Zinedine Zidane] told me to play just my game; I am really happy to have played my first match and to have won the penalty.

“We worked hard and it was a good performance. Manchester United have played more games but we competed well. I felt comfortable, happy. Now I have to keep growing and learning.”
