Real Soceidad defender Monreal: Odegaard has surprised me a lot

Real Soceidad defender Nacho Monreal admits he's been quickly won over by Martin Odegaard.

On-loan from Real Madrid, Odegaard hopes to be fit to face his parent club this weekend.

"He's surprised me a lot," Monreal told Radio MARCA about Odegaard.

"When you see him in training and playing, you realise that he's a special player.

"And, as a person too, he's a good lad.

"The truth is that Odegaard is breaking through and I think that he's found the right place, we're adapting to his way of playing.

"He's enjoying himself and he's raising the level of the group."
