Real Sociedad midfielder Odegaard hints he's not ready for Real Madrid

Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Odegaard is calm about his status at parent club Real Madrid.

The Norway international has been a revelation for La Real this season and is fighting to be fit to meet Real Madrid this weekend.

Asked about joining Madrid at 16, Odegaard told El Larguero: "The experience suited me well, because I think it is very difficult to play in Madrid at 16 years old, still at 20 as I am it is still very complicated...

"That is why everything is going good for me.

"I feel very good here. I feel at home. It is very kind and friendly, and it has been very easy to come here with the team. I am very happy here. It is a beautiful city."
