Ghana international Richmond Boakye-Yiadom has confessed that his favourite team is Real Madrid.
The Elche striker, who scored a goal this season in the game against Los Blancos at the Stadium Martinez Valero, openly declared on Spanish television that he is a big fan of the ten-time European champions.
“My favourite team is Real Madrid, and Sassuolo, of course,” Boakye-Yiadom said on TMW. “When I was little, in my house everyone supported Manchester United and Barcelona because of Ronaldinho's phenomenon but I liked Real.”
Boakye-Yiadom also explained that his move to Juventus came as a shock though he was expecting some offers after a good season with Sassuolo.
“To be honest, I was expecting some teams to come calling after a good season with Sassuolo, but the interest of Juventus I found out at the last minute because I do not read newspapers. My agent called me and gave me the good news.”
The 20-year-old forward is having a good term with Elche and might probably catch the eyes of scouts of Madrid.
