Carvajal: Real Madrid want Club World Cup glory

The right-back says the European champions are determined to take the global crown and cap a memorable 2014


Daniel Carvajal has insisted Real Madrid are keen to win the Club World Cup and add yet another piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet.

The Champions League winners last qualified for the competition in 2000, when they came in fourth behind Corinthians, Vasco da Gama and Necaxa, and Carvajal is determined to do better this time around in the tournament in Morocco.

Madrid meet the winner of the match between Cruz Azul and Western Sydney Wanderers in the semi-finals on December 16.

“Being able to win this new title is a huge motivation for me. It would be really special, as it is not easy to win. It would be a great way to close the season,” the defender said via Madrid’s official Twitter account.

“The group is fully aware of the importance of lifting this title and we are keen to keep winning.

“Being able to take part is a dream for me because of how hard it is to qualify and I’ll try to enjoy it as much as possible.”

The Spain international says he feels proud to be part of the Madrid set-up after returning to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2013 following a one-year spell with Bayer Leverkusen.

“I have goose bumps each time I enter the Bernabeu wearing this shirt and stand in front of the Madrid supporters,” he said.

“It is my second home and my life revolves around Real Madrid.”
