Antonio Blanco: “Playing with Casemiro, Kroos or Modric makes it all easier”

The midfielder discussed his first appearances for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid wonder kid Antonio Blanco made his debut for the Spanish national team this past week and will almost certainly feature in the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo. It’s been an exciting few months for Blanco, who also made his Real Madrid debut weeks ago and even played relevant minutes during the last few games of the season.

The midfielder talked about his feelings during those games.

"When you play with the likes of Casemiro, Kroos or Modric it’s all easier. You learn a lot from them and they also help you with everything. Every kid dreams of training and playing with them and I hope to stay here for many years," said Blanco.

The young player explained how he felt after making his Real Madrid debut just a day after playing a crucial game for Castilla.

"I wasn’t expecting to make my debut against Getafe because I had played 90 minutes the previous day for Castilla. When I started to warm up I realize that it could be the day and then Zidane told me to play my game, play easy and help the team," he explained.

Blanco, who added that “Real Madrid means the world” to him, might not have an obvious role with the squad next season. He could be Casemiro’s first backup, but new coach Carlo Ancelotti might actually change the structure of the midfield and traditional defensive midfielders like Casemiro or Antonio Blanco might not be as relevant as they were for Zidane.

If that’s the case, a loan deal where he can be a regular starter makes sense in order for Blanco to keep growing and developing as a player.
