Alvaro Odriozola excited to have signed for Real Madrid

Alvaro Odriozola is excited to have signed for Real Madrid.

The fullback has joined Madrid from Real Sociedad.

Odriozola declared: "Today I'm fulfilling a dream and I couldn't be happier to have signed for the biggest club in the world and in history. It's something indescribable. Something that happens once in a lifetime and I'm very happy to be here. I want to enjoy every moment and nothing else."

On working with Julen Lopetegui for Spain - and now Real - he added: "I'm eternally grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to play at a World Cup and I'm very happy that he's my coach.

"I've been with him this morning and he's conveyed to me that I am going to have all the confidence in the world, that I have to give my best and that it's a big club, with extremely high demands, which is why half measures are not worth it. He's a specialist in transmitting his message to the group."
