"There are nerves at the start but when you get on the the pitch you just feel like any other player", explained the academy footballer.
Marcos Llorente made his debut in an official game with the Real Madrid first squad. He did so in the game corresponding to matchday eight of La Liga as the Whites enjoyed a comprehensive victory against Levante at the Santiago Bernabéu. The academy midfielder came on in the 77th as a substitute for Kovacic: "I am very happy. I had already played in several games during the preseason, but today was my official debut and I am very happy with how my teammates treated me. I want to thank the coaching staff for the opportunity".

"There are always nerves at the start but when you get on the pitch you just feel like any other player. I played like I always play for Castilla and things went well. Whenever we play the fans really help us and I was surprised when I came on how much that really encouraged me".

"They were closing down a lot, they were pressuring us, but when we scored the two goals they opened up and we had more chances".
