Wednesday night was a memorable one for Real Madrid’s new signings. Arda Guler continued to grace the bench as he still waits for his debut, but Jude Bellingham and Joseu were on point for Los Blancos against Manchester United.

The game ended 2-0 in the favour of the Spanish outfit, and there are many positives for Ancelotti to take home from the same. Both goalscorers faced the press on the night and spoke about their contribution and incorporation into the squad.

Bellingham was the first to speak to the media after the team’s comprehensive win over Manchester United. The new signing commented on his general feeling at the club and his relationship with the staff and players.

“I have the confidence of both the staff and my teammates from the beginning. I feel comfortable and confident,” he said (h/t

The English prodigy went on to speak his heart out about the goal he scored on the night and did not forget to credit Antonio Rudiger for the assist.

“I am very happy to play with these players and I say it in every interview. The goal was after a great pass from Rüdiger. It’s a great joy to play with footballers who understand my movements.”

Joselu also gets off the mark for Real Madrid

Joselu, who scored in the penultimate minute of the game with a stunning bicycle kick, also spoke to the media. He revealed his sensations over netting his first in the white colours but his statements showed the high standards he has set for himself.

“I was upset because I missed a header before, but very happy with the goal and the victory,” he said.

On pulling off the bicycle kick, Joselu added: “It’s not the first time I’ve tried it and it went well. I did what I thought at the last moment. The ball was very high, it crossed my head and the ball went in.”

With no other natural centre-forward available to the manager, Joseu has a massive weight on his shoulders to rack up numbers for Los Blancos in the upcoming season. He talked about his work ethic and the boost in morale the win gave him.

“I train and try to score goals in the best possible way. I am left with the importance it has had to close the game and give us morale for the rest of the pre-season. We’ve played a good game.”

Moving from the relegated Espanyol to a perennial champion in Real Madrid, life has come fast for the Spanish striker. He revealed how it was to play with such a high-quality squad and the responsibility that came with it.

“I haven’t even been here for three weeks and everything is new to me. I don’t like to talk about numbers. I’ve come here to help and to do what the coach asks me to do. A striker likes to score and that’s why I’m happy,” he said.

“Surrounded by these players everything is easier. I’ve been very well received and the adaptation has been very good.”

Real Madrid goalscorer played with a dislocated shoulder against Las Palmas

Journalist Arancha Rodriguez has claimed that Real Madrid forward Brahim Diaz played the Las Palmas game with a dislocation in his right shoulder, which actually happened last Sunday during the derby match against Atletico Madrid.

The news was later confirmed by the forward’s father, Sufiel Abdekalder, who told The Athletic, “Yes [he had dislocated shoulder], but we didn’t want it to be public. Our 100% focus was on the match.”

The former AC Milan loanee started his first game of the season and it was his goal that marked the beginning of Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Las Palmas. 

The 24-year-old was later replaced in the 57th minute but by then, the Los Blancos had already established a two-goal lead.

“I’m so proud, you can’t describe the feeling, it’s something unique. I can only thank the fans because I’ve had an incredible welcome. I’m very happy to be here and play for this badge,” the forward said after the game.

Special outing for Diaz

The Las Palmas game was the first time that Diaz started a game for Real Madrid.

The versatile attacking midfielder found himself among the five alterations made by Carlo Ancelotti following the disheartening derby performance against Atletico Madrid last Sunday, a game where Diaz was only introduced in the 70th minute.

The 24-year-old seized the opportunity with both hands, scoring the opening goal in what was a comfortable outing for the team. 

Given the competition at hand, Diaz has been forced to settle for substitute appearances this season but fans have witnessed his unwavering dedication during this time.

The love he received from the Madrid supporters was shown when he was substituted during the second half.

While it is unlikely that his run in the first-team will continue, especially since Vinicius Jr. has now returned, the 24-year-old must continue to keep his head on the ground and work towards achieving the common goal this season.
