Roberto Carlos gave an interview to Real Madrid TV, which also appeared on Marca.
The former Brazilian full-back discussed the recent performances of Los Blancos, including the important role played by Antonio Rüdiger in the side. The German international scored a crucial equaliser in the dying moments of Real Madrid’s game against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League last week:
“Rüdiger represents what the Real Madrid shirt means. The effort, the dedication, the commitment. And he is also a person who makes himself loved. He is very funny, you have to see him on trips, he acts like a Brazilian.”
“He is also a player who is attentive to the younger players. The youngsters admire him and learn from him and the veterans respect him a lot. We have to congratulate Madrid because they made a great signing,” he added.
Rüdiger joined Real Madrid from Chelsea this past summer and he has cemented his position in the European champions’ starting XI.
