Lucas Silva held a press conference in the Santiago Bernabéu’s press room following his presentation. The Brazilian was accompanied by Emilio Butragueño, the director of Institutional Relations, who welcomed him: “You have already felt the love of the supporters, some of whom were your compatriots. You will always have their love and they will expect the most of you. We are sure that you have just begun a period of your career that will be full of success”.
After that it was the player’s turn to speak: “This is a dream, it is a new stage of my career and I hope to make the most of it. I want to make history at this club. I’m ready to get playing as soon as possible. This is all very new to me, but I feel ready to be here. I’ve had a taste of the atmosphere, so we’ll see what it’s like on matchdays”.
“Opportunities come about and you have to be ready to take them. I had a really good feeling when I arrived, I have to confess that I felt a few butterflies in my stomach when I came out on to the pitch and I saw the fans and the media.”
