Dani Ceballos insists he still sees himself succeeding at Real Madrid.
The midfielder, who is on-loan at Arsenal until the end of the season, told TVE:
“I am a Real Madrid player, and any player in the world would like to play for Real Madrid, I have a contract with them for three more years and they are the ideal team to succeed.”
Ceballos asked for a temporary move away from the Santiago Bernabeu in order to impress head coach Zinedine Zidane, having only started four La Liga games during the 2017-18 campaign, their one full season together at the club.
The 23-year old enjoyed more opportunities under Zidane’s successor and predecessor, Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari respectively, but his reportedly troubled relationship with Zidane has always impacted Ceballos negatively.
Though the Spaniard is still keen to prove his worth to Zidane:
“The best of Dani Ceballos is yet to come, settling in a team, feeling important, feeling like a leader, which is what I really like.”
