Juan Miguel Latasa made his official debut for Real Madrid in the clash against Cádiz at the Nuevo Mirandilla, on matchday 37 of LaLiga. The Castilla forward, who came on in the 82nd minute to replace Mariano, joined our club in 2016 to form part of the under-16s team.
The academy player said after the game: "I'm really happy, I've been dreaming about this day for a long time, since I joined the under-16s. It's been a very hard and long road. I would like to thank my parents who have been with me at a lot of training sessions and spent a lot of hours at Valdebebas. I'm pleased that I'm gradually growing into this team and that I've made my debut".
"Ancelotti told me to keep calm, to help as much as I could and just play the way I know how. You move up to train with your heroes, it's a like dream, and when you get the chance, you just try to do as well as you can. I'm proud and really happy. I'm going to get my shirt signed and I'll hang it up at home".
