During his unveiling as a new Real Madrid player, Joselu made it clear that his role in the team is not about replacing Karim Benzema, but rather about enjoying his time at the club and contributing to its success.
“I’m not here to replace Benzema. I’m here to enjoy, to help the club. I’m here to do my part,” Joselu said.
“I am going to give my maximum here. This is the club of my life. I want to score goals,” expressed the striker in reference to his loan move to Real Madrid for the 2023/24 season.
Regarding the number he will wear on his shirt, he emphasized that any number in the Real Madrid first team is significant, and he is immensely proud to have the opportunity to wear it.
For him, being a Madridista and representing the club is more important than the specific number on his jersey.
“The 14? Any number in the Real Madrid first team is important, I’m super proud to be able to wear any number. Any player in the world would do anything to wear this shirt. The number is secondary.
“I’m a Madridista. It doesn’t matter what number I use. I’m proud to be a Real Madrid player,” the striker said.
Joselu acknowledged the honor of playing for Real Madrid, stating that any player in the world would do anything to wear the iconic white shirt. Regardless of the number assigned to him, he is filled with pride to be a Real Madrid player.
As a one-year loan signing, Joselu is set to be the sole center-forward move for the club in this summer transfer window.
