Real Madrid midfielder, Eduardo Camavinga has disclosed that he has learnt a lot of lesson from the duo of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.
Camavinga , who is now in his second season in Spain, told GQ that it was an opportunity to be part of the Real Madrid team.
“I learned a lot from (Luka) Modric and (Toni) Kroos, both for what they do on the pitch and for what they do off. They also work after training, these are things that I do too and that are positive for me.
“Playing for Real was my dream since I was little, they are the best club in the world and when they came forward for me I had no doubts.
“(Carlo) Ancelotti? He is one of the best in the world, he was able to win many titles in many different countries. He is a person who talks a lot with players, even with young people. When I arrived he gave me some homework and explained what he wanted from me.
“He gives me a lot of confidence both when I play as a starter and when I start on the bench.”
On 5 November 2019, Camavinga obtained French citizenship. Six days later, he was selected to represent France’s under-21 team for games against Georgia and Switzerland, after Matteo Guendouzi was called up to the senior team.
On 27 August 2020, Camavinga was called up to play on France’s senior team after Paul Pogba was sidelined by a positive COVID-19 test. He became, in the process, the youngest player to be called up to the French senior team since René Gérard in 1932, who was only 17 years, nine months and 17 days old. On 8 September, he debuted in a 4–2 win against Croatia in the UEFA Nations League, replacing N’Golo Kanté midway through the second half. In doing so he became the youngest player to play for French national team since Maurice Gastiger in 1914 at 17 years, nine months, and 29 days old.
