Midfielder Marcos Llorente admitted that it is very annoying not to be able to face the parent club Real Madrid this Saturday because of a clause in his loan deal.
The 21 year old player came through Castilla youth team of Madrid. He made his debut for Los Blancos under Rafa Benitez as the coach then in the last season.
Cureent coach Zidane decided to sent the under-21 international on loan for the 2016-17 campaign and he turns out to be impressive for a newly promoted Alaves side that won 2-1 at Barcelona. The current ranking is 13th in the table.
During Madrid’s visit to Mendizorrotza Marcos expressed his disappointment about the clause included by Real Madrid which prevents a player from that they have loaned to play against them. He was forbidden to appear against them as he had been loaned out by the club.
Llorente seemed pretty annoyed with the fact but he also said that he knew about the fact while he was signing for the deal that he was not going to play the games. He was trying not to think about the same. He also acknowledges the decisions taken by them as a Madrid player.
He stated that he wanted to stay during the preseason. But after consulting with Madrid director Josen Angel Sanchez, Zidane and his family he decided to go on loan. His plan was to play at least 30 games and definitely he is playing well but he is also waiting for next summer to see what happens next.
Real Madrid’s only real midfielder Casemiro is currently injured and Zidane admitted that Llorente would have taken his place perfectly if he wouldn’t have been stuck around the Bernabeu. But according to Marcos it is not at all enough for him to just fill the gaps when a player is not available. He is constantly looking for greater opportunities for future.
His goal is to earn a place in the team once he is back in Real Madrid. As a starter he wants to leave his own impression on the team. He is not ready to be on the bench and be a replacement for any injured player or if anything happens to any of the players. He is ready to fight for his own place. Marcos doesn’t want to replicate anyone and be a new Tony Kroos or new Casemiro. He wants to have his own identity and be Marcos Llorente for his team.
Llorente has a famous family background. He is from Bernabeu and his father Paco Llorente and grandfather Ramon Moreno Grosso used to play for Real Madrid. His great-grandfather is a renowned winger and six-time European cup winner Paco Gento. Marcos said that they would all want Alaves to shock Zidane’s side on Saturday.
Llorente mentioned that many of his family members have made history at Madrid and now he would try his best to follow their footsteps. But his family members and friends are in favour of Alaves in this game. He is aiming to achieve great success and he would not mind if it begins with beating Real Madrid.
