The Norwegian, due to Madrid’s doubts in the dressing room and the injury of Fede Valverde, has a golden opportunity to gain the confidence of Zinedine Zidane.
After a fantastic season in the ranks of Real Sociedad, Martin Odegaard returned this summer to Real Madrid after years of experience with different teams.
The young Norwegian footballer was ready to take on the challenge, but nothing has gone as he had planned at the beginning of a season marked mainly by an injury since the middle of October.
Odegaard returned in the final part of the debacle at the Mestalla, a match which it would be unfair to judge him from and which he has to use as, like the next commitments with Norway, a way to reach top form again. Something that will be vital for a footballer who has the perfect opportunity.
With the team as it is, riddled with injuries and poor form, Odegaard must take a decisive stand and prove to Zidane that he deserves to be a starter in the squad.
