In an exclusive interview with AS, Rayo Vallecano goalkeeper and son of Zinedine Zidane, Luca Zidane, discussed a future return to his former club.

The 23-year-old shot-stopper joined Rayo on a free transfer from Real Madrid in 2020.

You talk about working to achieve your dreams, is returning to Madrid one of them?

“I know how difficult it is, but yes, why not? Madrid are the best club in the world and I’ve always said that my goals are big. Why not return one day? For that you have to work hard, to be focused on football, that’s what I’m doing. We’ll see with time.”

What have Rayo given you as a player?

“The club have given me a lot, like being able to return to Primera, where I had played a couple of games with Real Madrid. I feel comfortable here.”

What has surprised you?

“The fans! They help us a lot in every match. People don’t realise it, but when they are fully behind us, the players give 200%. I had been told about the fans, but to feel them there in the ground is amazing. And they’ve been there in the good times and bad.”

Have we seen Rayo’s limit? And what is yours?

“We don’t set limits for ourselves and mine is yet to be seen. I am young and ambitious, I know what I want and I hope to get there as quickly as possible.”

What is Luca like as a person?

“I’m not very talkative, but I’m a normal guy. I’m hard-working and a family person.”
