Former Real Madrid forward José Callejón has given an exclusive interview ahead of his return to the Bernabéu with Napoli in the Champions League Last 16 next week.
The full interview will be published on the morning of Thursday 8 February 2017 on as.com
Real Madrid-Naples. Was it the Champions League draw you dreamed of?
The truth was yes, I dreamed of going back there. I did not expect it to be now, in the Last 16, it's a bit early to play Real Madrid! But the draw is like that sometimes...
"I’m in contact a lot with Ramos and with Morata"
How did the dressing room react?
Well, it's a challenge for everyone. But until Saturday we can’t talk about Madrid, the boss gets angry (laughs)!
Have you talked to any of your ex-teammates?
I’m in contact a lot with Ramos and with Morata. I also congratulated Cristiano for the Ballon d’Or.
What kind of teammate is Cristiano?
He is an absolutely normal, modest person. He’s great worker: first to come in and the last one to leave. When I trained with him, I always tried to learn. It’s not every day you work with the best in the world.
