“I have really shown the reason for my signing” – 24-year-old opens up on replacing 2 Real Madrid players who ‘made history’

Real Madrid centre-back Eder Militao has done a decent job stepping up following the departures of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane last summer. The Brazilian, who joined Los Blancos from FC Porto in the summer of 2019, has opened up on his role in the absence of the iconic duo.

Taking up the mantle from Ramos and Varane is certainly not an easy job. the 24-year-old, though, saw that as an opportunity to prove his worth to the Los Blancos faithful.

“When those two left, people pointed out that they had made a lot of history at the club,” he explained to Spanish publication Marca (via Managing Madrid). I thought my time had come to do things right to show the fans and the whole world that they could also count on me. I’ve put on a great display for the people, and I’ve shown why I’m at Real Madrid.”

In the absence of Ramos and Varane, Militao formed a new partnership with David Alaba at the heart of the defence last season. Talking about how he fit in, the Brazilian said that he thinks he has done a good job, justifying his transfer.

“Yes. I have demonstrated it very well. When I arrived, things didn’t go well because I had two central defenders ahead of me, who had been together for a long time. Now I have really shown the reason for my signing,” the 24-year-old added.
