Eder Militao: I've justified fee Real Madrid paid for me

Eder Militao feels well established at Real Madrid.

The Brazil defender is confident he has justified his €50m price-tag.

He told Marca: "When I arrived things didn't go well because I had two central defenders like that ahead of me. They had been together for a long time, but I have shown why I was signed.

"I didn't stop doing the things I did before and I remained confident. I knew I wasn't doing well, but work and family helped me on a daily basis."

On coach Carlo Ancelotti, Militao added: "He is a great coach. He helps us a lot and respects the decisions of the players. On a day-to-day basis he talks a lot in training. He is a very funny person, he connects with us."
