In an interview with French media outlet L’Équipe, Real Madrid midfielder spoke about his friend Aurelien Tchouameni, Real Madrid’s Champions League run, his omission from the French National Team, and more:

On Real Madrid potentially signing Aurelien Tchouameni

“It would be fun, that’s for sure! He’s a player I’ve already met in the national team. I hope he comes to Madrid. I don’t know exactly how the situation is, but I’ve already talked to him. We’ll see what happens in the next few days.”

On Real Madrid’s Champions League triumph

“I’m still in a dream. I think that in the moment I didn’t realize what I have achieved and it is possible that I will process it during the holidays. I will say to myself: What a madness.

“I had already had the opportunity to go to Cibeles to celebrate the League and I came back for the Champions League. You experience enormous emotions, but then you have to know how to make sense of things and go back to work. I had a few days to enjoy myself, but now I have to concentrate on the national team. Although I still have the Champions League in my head.

“It was very strong to experience that with my family on the pitch after the game. I especially remember that I took a picture with my brother and put it directly as the wallpaper on my phone.

“I want to win as many titles as possible. I want to win more, there are also other competitions, I don’t want to rest on my achievements. I want to win several Champions Leagues, yes, five like Karim!”

On his omission from the French National Team

“The coach makes his decisions and I just accept them. Of course, I would have preferred to be in the senior team. But I am also very happy to come to the U21s because I really like this group. I am happy with my friends.

“It is the performances of my club that will determine whether I am selected or not. I will return to the club and try to play as much as possible. Then whatever has to happen will happen.”
