Real Madrid attacker Brahim Diaz talked to Diario AS after his brilliant start to the 2020-2021 season with Milan, where he’s currently playing on loan. Brahim explained why he left Madrid this season and how he feels about his move to Los Blancos years ago.
“I wanted the chance to play regularly, feel that I’m playing minutes, nothing has changed overall. I want to be me and show my football. I feel as an important player in Milan and now it’s time for me to grow, learn and improve,” said Brahim.
Coach Zinedine Zidane reportedly wanted Brahim to leave the club last season but the player insisted on staying in the Spanish capital. Some reports even suggested that the relationship between them two wasn’t good, but Brahim quickly denied those reports.
“I’m fond of Zidane, he’s been a great player and he’s a winner also as coach. He’s always given me good advise, what he told me before I left Madrid is something that shouldn’t remain between us two, but I’m fond of him,” added Brahim.
When asked if he regrets joining Madrid, Brahim was very explicit.
“Not at all! How could I? This is Madrid we’re talking about,” concluded the talented attacker.
Brahim will be hoping to keep being a relevant player for Milan so that he can fight for a spot in next year’s Real Madrid squad, given that he will return to the club after this season.
