34 short minutes! But 34 minutes may be enough to whet the mouths of Madrid supporters. And remind everyone of his talent. Eduardo Camavinga is like that. He doesn’t like to take his time to set the record straight. So far, his arrival at Real Madrid looks like a daydream. Launched during the match twice – last weekend against Celta Vigo (5-2) then in the Champions League on Wednesday against Inter (0-1) – the former Rennais was decisive each time, with a goal then an assist. “The kid is ready ! ”, summarized Marca, who made his front page on him this Friday.
This thunderous introduction to a prestigious Real Madrid club may come as a surprise. Because last season, Eduardo Camavinga had a more complicated exercise after his first selections for the French team (note: 3 between September and October 2020). We even sometimes had trouble recognizing the refreshing kid who changed the face of Stade Rennais meetings by his simplicity, his vision of the game and his activity. And a few weeks later, here he is blazing at Real where he has just signed just before the end of the transfer window for 31 million euros (+ 9 M bonus).
Camavinga contributes to Real Madrid’s perfect shot

Last year, he validated the entire course of the player who must go from young people to pros …
Astonishing? Not for Mathieu Le Scornet, who found him for Stade Rennais in Fougères at 10 years old before participating in his training at the Breton club. “When he is confident, his qualities stand out especially when there is a notion of challenge. Because he’s a boy who works on challenges“Says Julien Stephan’s deputy in Strasbourg. And by joining one of the biggest clubs in the world, the left-handed midfielder offered himself a challenge that lived up to his immense potential.
Moreover, its drop in 2021 was not necessarily worrying. We tend to forget it so much Camavinga can give the impression of dominating his subject. But he’s still an 18-year-old kid! “Last year, he validated the entire course of the player who must go from young people to pros and must be efficient immediately. (…) There can then be a little relaxation, even more when you are 17 years old. Perhaps he could have been less demanding of himself. But when you have the qualities …“, summarizes Mathieu Le Scornet.
We are talking about 9 and a half. Him, it’s an 8 plus
Qualities, the French international has many. Football, of course. But also mental. “What is amazing about him is that we see a player who is already strong. Who seeks to make the difference either by passing or by dribbling. But when we talk to him, we realize that he does not yet feel strong enough. And therefore that he put in place a work-related strategy to progress. He has a real thirst for learning“, greeted Mathieu Le Scornet. This is obviously one of the keys to his success.
And at Real Madrid where Carlo Ancelotti asked for “patience“With the former Rouge et Noir, Camavinga has perhaps found the ideal context to allow him to continue his progress. The daily requirement, the obligation of results and the level of the players who surround him now should. help to take new steps. “The experience he will acquire with Casemiro, Modric or Kroos“, saliva already Mathieu Le Scornet.
If he shone for his first steps with the white tunic on his back, Camavinga knows anyway that he has not yet arrived. He still has many corners to overcome. In particular to try to earn the stripes of the holder. Afterwards, it will be necessary to impose itself in the long term. To become the successful player he can be. The one that makes many technicians salivate. It remains to be seen in which position exactly? “It’s an 8 plus! We are talking about 9 and a half. He is an 8 plus. Or 8 and a half if you want“, concludes Stephan’s deputy.”When he is very strong, it is when he starts from behind. Typical action is what happened on Wednesday. This is him“. And the members of Real are discovering it. With a certain pleasure.
