Brahim Diaz described his Real Madrid debut as a ‘dream’ after making his first appearance since arriving from Manchester City.
Diaz swapped Premier League champions City for La Liga giants Madrid last week on a six-and-a-half-year contract in a move worth a reported initial fee of €17-million.
And the 19-year-old attacker debuted on Wednesday after coming off the bench in Madrid’s 3-0 Copa del Rey victory over Leganes at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Speaking afterwards, Diaz said: ‘This is great, an unforgettable and unique day.
‘Making my debut at the Bernabeu is great. This is a dream since I was a child.
‘Winning makes the dream greater, but I take everything in peace. I will hang my debut shirt in my room.’
Diaz added: ‘Sergio Ramos has congratulated me and told me to continue like this, and that I will have many minutes.
