Jesé: “I'd love to score against Barcelona to give Real Madrid La Liga”

The former Real Madrid starlet still bleeds white.

As reported by Marca, Jesé Rodríguez still considers himself very much a Madridista. With La Liga coming to a close, the former Real Madrid youth product wants to do everything in his power to ensure that the league trophy ends up in the Bernabeu. Speaking ahead of Las Palmas’ clash with Barcelona two days from now, Jesé had this to say:

I'm not going to lie, I'd love to score against Barcelona to give Real Madrid LaLiga," he said. MSN are very good players, but I'd prefer others.

Real Madrid and Barcelona both have very good squads with footballers waiting for their chance on the bench.

While one wouldn’t really expect much different from a former Madrid player, it still makes your heart feel all warm and fuzzy to see that a player many adored still so obviously bleeds white. Jesé did have some friction with the leadership over his playing time, but it seems that there are no hard feelings now and that he is ready to do his part for Real, even if he isn’t officially part of the team anymore.

Love you Jesé <3.
