Real Madrid defender Eder Militao talked in an interview to Diario AS and explained the keys behind his brilliant start to the 2021-2022 season, where he has established himself as an undisputed starter for Madrid.

“[Coach] Ancelotti has been very important for me, he’s given me the trust and the confidence every player needs. I’m still trying to learn and to improve every day though. I have many beautiful moments ahead for Real Madrid and also for Brazil,” said Militao, who also added that he’s “living a dream,” when asked about his role in the Spanish capital.

Militao has built a very strong defensive partnership alongside David Alaba, who joined the squad this past summer. The Brazilian center-back is performing well enough to consider him an undisputed starter for many years to come, even if Real Madrid manage to sign Antonio Rudiger as a free agent next summer.

Militao will turn 24 years old in a few weeks and was named Real Madrid’s Player of the Month today.
