Mariano Diaz Explains Why He Chose Real Madrid No.7 Jersey

Real Madrid summer signing, Mariano Diaz has explained why he chose the No.7 jersey, previously worn by Cristiano Ronaldo.


Los Blancos re-signed Diaz with a buy-back option in his contract from Lyon in the summer for a fee of £20m.


At Lyon, Diaz scored 21 goals in 45 appearances for the Ligue 1 club.


Speaking on the choice of the shirt he chose at the Bernabeu, he said: ‘Yes, it weighs a lot. I was free, it’s a number I like and it’s a personal challenge.


"I am happy to be able to use a number used by Amancio, Juanito, Butragueño, Raul and Cristiano Ronaldo, of course,’ Mariano told Spanish radio show El Partidazo Cope.


‘Many told me I should not choose it, but I’m not thinking about it. I want to work hard to enjoy minutes.’


He added, “I don’t know when I’ll make my debut. I work so that it can be as soon as possible. I will just keep working hard. Lopetegui told me to keep doing what I’m doing right now”.
