Zinedine Zidane is delighted with how Guillermo Varela has performed on loan at Real Madrid’s Castilla this season and backed him to become a top quality professional in the future.
Varela, 21, joined Real Madrid on loan this summer in what was a surprising move and has gone on to make 13 appearances this season, with only three other players making more than the Uruguayan right-back.
Although Real Madrid Castilla are currently languishing in 13th place in the league, Varela has made quite the impression on Zidane who hailed both his qualities and attitude.
“He is very serious and professional. He also has a lot of quality and I have no doubts he will make it to the top.”
It’s good to hear Varela doing so well in what is a new environment for him and with Manchester United in need of at least one new right-back, Louis van Gaal might already have an answer in his squad.
