Imanol Alguacil is confident that Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard will still be at Real Sociedad next season.

The 21-year-old’s loan deal with the Basque side runs until the end of the 2020/21 campaign, and despite there being an option for it to be cut short this summer, La Real’s coach believes that the playmaker will remain in San Sebastian.

“It’s something that I haven’t talked to him about, but I take it for granted that he will be here, just like the rest,” said Imanol.

“Why? Because of how I see them, because of how they came back after lockdown and that tells you a lot.

“[We are] as we were when we stopped: the entire team committed, wanting to play, squeezing each other.

“And now they have returned with the same [mentality] and that makes me feel calm.

“Then it is football and anything can happen, but everyone is super excited to finish this well, to have a super beautiful year next year.

“I think Martin is having a great year but, as I have always said, that is because he has improved through training.

“He knows he is at a great club that is giving him a lot, just as he is giving the team [a lot].

“I think he is very happy and excited, wanting to compete again.”
