Real Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola relishing extended run in side

Real Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola is ‘very happy’ with his regular starting spot for the side under boss Santiago Solari.

The full-back, a €40m summer arrival from Real Sociedad, has already made seven starts under the Argentine Coach and appears to have become a fixture in the starting line-up.

“I am very happy with my situation in Madrid,” Odriozola told reporters, as cited by Diario AS.

“I am really happy to be securing regular playing time and to have the support of the Coach, it is very important.

“I need to continue to work very hard, to continue giving 100% in every match because that is the key for success.

“Every game for this club is important as it could lead to a title, and that is why we want to play the Club World Cup – to win our first trophy of the season.”
