Éder Militão spoke to the media and shared his thoughts at the Santiago Bernabeu press room following his presentation as a new Real Madrid player on Wednesday. Before answering questions from journalists on a number of topics, he explained his feelings: “It’s a very emotional moment and a special day for me and my family. We have reached a very high level and the best club in the world. It’s a very special day and I’m happy to have arrived at Real Madrid.

“Things have happened fast in my life. I played a short time at São Paulo and Porto. Now I’m at the best club in the world and I’m very happy to be here. I’m not going to settle for this. I want to do a great job. I will try to do everything possible to keep myself at this level.

“When I heard the news, I was very happy. I saw that my hard work was paying off. I didn’t think twice and I said immediately I wanted to come. I already saw myself playing for the best club and it’s a very good feeling to see how a great team wants you to be part of their squad. I was very happy when I received the news.”


– Message for the fans:

“They can expect a very competitive player who will give everything for this shirt and who will play ever game like it’s my last. I’m going to have a good season and bring a lot of happiness to the fans.”

– Defining himself:

“I am a versatile player, who always plays for the love of what he does, and I don’t like to lose. I always hope to give my best. I’m a very competitive player.”

– On Zidane:

“I’ve not spoken to him yet, but I’m looking forward to doing so and working with him. I hope everything goes well and we can do a great job. I haven’t thought about any jersey number yet.”

– Advice from Casillas and Pepe at Porto:

“They have spoken to me about culture, about the day to day…they told me to come quietly, to work hard and keep growing to stay here.”

– Competition in the squad:

“It’s going to be a very good dispute. I’ve come to do my work. I know it’s not going to be easy, but I’ll do what the coach tells me. If he gives me the opportunity, I’ll do a good job. Being a starter or not will be decided by the coach. What he decides about me will be fine. The decision is his.”

– Pressure and objectives:

“Yes, there is pressure. It’s a very big club, but it’s good. There is always that pressure, but I hope to have a good season. As for the title that I would most like to win the most, it’s the Champions League.”

Militão had to leave the press conference and couldn’t answer the last question, “I”m getting dizzy and feel sick,” he said before walking out.
