Mentor Romero delighted for Mariano Diaz over Real Madrid return

Former Real Madrid scout Manolo Romero is delighted to see Mariano Diaz returning to the club.

Real have today completed the signing of Mariano from Lyon.

Romero discovered the striker when he was playing as a junior with Badalona and remains in touch with the player.

He told Cadena Ser: "Mariano has a great virtue, nobody has given him anything and he is very simple and humble.

"This summer he sent me a message before going on vacation to Miami jokingly saying: 'Romero, I have to get back to Madrid and you with me.

"50% of the bet seems to be going to be achieved, he has a lot of room for improvement and one thing that I love is that of the guys who let themselves be advised."

Romero added: "They will love him in the dressing room, he is not at all conflicted. He's educated, affectionate, of those who listen, otherwise he would say otherwise."
