Real Madrid defender, Raphael Varane has come out to reveal that playing for the club has made him develop a warrior mentality. He recently revealed that the pressure at the Spanish club is nothing but a friend to him.
According to him, he actually loves the pressure he is under when he wears the white jersey as one tends to run faster when he is scared.
Varane added that he absolutely loves challenges when playing for the Spanish giant because it drives him to do more.
His words, “For me, pressure is a friend. It’s a driving force.”
“I think pressure makes you better. It gives you adrenaline and helps you think faster, stay more focused and play the game more intensely. I’d say that terrifying pressure should motivate you, since you run faster when you’re scared.”
“I don’t think my style of play makes you immediately think that I’m a warrior. However, I recognise that I have a warrior mentality.”
“I quite like challenges. The more difficult the challenge, the more I enjoy it. The less you believe in me, the more motivated I am. That’s my way of being and thinking, and that’s what helped me reach the highest level and stay there for many years.”
“Especially at the really big clubs you can see what kind of wounds coronavirus has inflicted, and they are not small ones that heal within two weeks.”
