Joselu labels Real Madrid full-back ‘best in history’

Published

on

Daniel Carvajal was the hero at Wembley for Real Madrid as he opened the scoring late in the second half to hand his team a much-needed lead against Borussia Dortmund last night.

The Spaniard did not have it easy to that point in the final, especially with young Karim Adeyemi pouncing down his flank. He was made to work very hard defensively to keep up with the 22-year-old’s counter-attacks but more than made up for some slip-ups with the match-winning goal.

The win last night marked the record-breaking sixth UCL title for the right-back who was the only remaining starter in the team from the lineup that played against Atletico Madrid for La Decima ten years ago.

Joselu heaps praise

Speaking to Real Madrid TV after Real Madrid’s triumph at Wembley, veteran striker Joselu briefly praised Carvajal for playing a wonderful game through the 90 minutes and made a big claim in the process.

“Carvajal? For me, he is the best full-back in history, certainly from Real Madrid.”

Joselu also spoke about his future at the club as part of the same interaction, especially with his loan at Real Madrid coming to an end this month.

 “I don’t know where I will be next season,” he admitted, insisting that nothing was decided.

What does the future hold for Joselu?

With Kylian Mbappe and Endrick set to arrive this summer, Real Madrid’s forward department will have no dearth of competition. Joselu, thus, is likely to have little to no part to play in the team’s dynamics should he continue at the clubs.

Considering the handy cameos the Spaniard has produced over the season, Real Madrid are considering offering Joselu a one-year extension. Whether that will be on a loan or a separate contract, however, is unclear.

Despite the club’s offer, it is unclear if the player will accept the option to stay given the severe competition that next season holds. The future, thus, is indeed uncertain for Joselu and the coming days will be critical in making a decision.

France NT growing concerned about Real Madrid star’s fitness ahead of Euros

Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni is currently with the French National Team in preparation for the upcoming European Championships.

Didier Deschamps and Co. were hoping that the defensive midfielder would make a complete recovery from the stress injury on his left foot in time for the Euros, but his situation does not appear as favourable any longer.

With the commencement of the competition approaching fast, the French setup are worried and must make a decision fast, as revealed by SPORT.

Long time out

Les Bleus are still living in the optimism that Tchouameni will make it back in time for the premier event. With every passing day, however, the Real Madrid star’s availability is looking more distant.

After all, the deep-lying midfielder last played over a month ago in Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich. Since then, he missed four league games, the UCL final and two friendly games with the national team.

Should the Frenchman recover in time, there will be questions raised about his match-fitness and rightly so for 40 days is a very long hiatus in the world of football.

Urgent decision

The medical team of the French national setup have reportedly devised a specific plan to ensure that the youngster recovers at the earliest and is available for the event in Germany.

Deschamps, however, has a critical decision to make as he will not be allowed to make any changes to his squad after the tournament begins. His deadline, thus, is the 17th of June before his team’s clash against Austria.

The manager hopes to recover Tchouameni at all costs and will likely wait until the nth minute before taking a decision.

Should a replacement be required, a UEFA Medical Committee doctor will have to confirm that the injury is indeed as serious as the camp believe.
