Things seems to be looking up for Martin Ødegaard. Forced to toil with Real Madrid Castilla for months after his low-profile transfer at the ripe age of 16, the Norwegian international has languished with the scrubs while his career spirals into decay. Now, just 6 months away from his 17th birthday, it’s almost too late, but Carlo Ancelotti’s tossed the player a lifeline. With reports saying he is set to feature in the Real Madrid first team this coming weekend, a ray of light shines through the grey cloud of his £80,000/week salary.
Cristiano Ronaldo however, has no plans to make this a cakewalk for Martin. Watch as he maliciously teases the young Norwegian in a game of rondo, giving him the ball over and over, gaining his trust, only to later bamboozle the teenager and hoot his derision as the rest of his cronies watch in delight. We already knew Ronaldo was a menace, but a bully too? Shame.
