Real Madrid fullback Odriozola: I've joined Bayern Munich to play and win

Real Madrid fullback Alvaro Odriozola has explained leaving for Bayern Munich this week.

The youngster has joined Bayern to the end of the season and already underwent a first training session yesterday under coach Hansi Flick.

He said in the afternoon: "I want to thank the club for being interested in me. It is an honour and a privilege to be part of this club. I have seen them many times on TV and it was always a dream to wear his shirt.

"I was at Real Madrid and I did not have a doubt. I'm proud to be part of the history of Bayern Munich.

"I am prepared. I have not come to waste time, I have come to play. It is true that I have not played much in recent times, but I work well and I am always prepared to give one hundred percent. I am already thinking of Schalke's game and I would love to play."

On his future with Real, Odriozola added: "I live in the present, the present is today and today I am a Bayern Munich player. I come to give one hundred percent and win all the titles. You don't know what will happen tomorrow, so I prefer to continue living in the present."
