NEWS | 13/02/2017"To reach this milestone is a privilege and a dream", added the captain at the presentation that took place in the board room of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.
Upon conclusion of the event that took place in the board room at the Santiago Bernabéu, the captain said: "It is an important and special number, to play so many games is a privilege and a dream, to do it as captain is a bonus and makes it mean more to me. It seems like yesterday when I came from Sevilla and was I a child, but time passes very quickly and hopefully I can play a lot more games".
"There are several players who have played more the 500 games for Real Madrid and they are legends of the club. It is a goal and a daily challenge to continue to give my all to enjoy many more years representing this team. Wearing this shirt has been one of my dreams since many years ago and I want to carry on, giving my best for as long as possible".
La Décima and la Undécima
"I have a very beautiful memory of both la Décima and la Undécima. I was able to experience them in first person and with a leading role. To be able to contribute to winning a final is wonderful because it goes down in the history of a great club like ours. Having those trophies on my CV is special".
