Rodrygo Goes delighted with first months at Real Madrid

Rodrygo Goes is delighted with his first months at Real Madrid.

The striker already has a first senior goal, while he is a regular with Raul's Castilla.

"My adaption has gone well," he said in Brazil during international break. "I live in a really nice city, at the biggest club in the world, with the best footballers in the world, who have really welcomed me in. It was easy to adapt."

After his first goal, coach Zinedine Zidane wasn't slow to praise the youngster.

"My relationship with Zidane is really good," Rodrygo added. "He was one of my idols, I was always looking at videos of Zidane, he always inspired me. To have him as my manager is something wonderful. He won everything and has a lot of experience to share with me. He is a man who loves to speak and give advice. I make sure to learn and develop."
