Madrid, Jun 20 (EFE).- German defender Antonio Rüdiger on Monday was officially presented as a Real Madrid player after signing a four-year contract with the Spanish powerhouse.
“This is a very special day for my family and for me,” the German defender said during the event attended by his parents, wife and two children.
“I can promise you that I’ll give my all for this club to win every possible trophy. Hala Madrid y nada más!” added the player who joined Los Blancos as a free agent after his Chelsea contract expired.
The 29-year-old revealed that contacts with Real Madrid began in September and that an April conversation with coach Carlo Ancelotti convinced him to join the 14-time Champions League winners.
Rüdiger acknowledged that Barcelona had also showed interest in his services. EFE
