Joselu spent three years with Real Madrid Castilla between 2009 and 2012, while as a young player.

Joselu, now 33, is in his second stint at Real Madrid, as he signed on loan from Espanyol.

The former Castilla forward told Marca about the day he signed for Madrid: “I went with Carvajal in his car, because they were going to leave me with a ride at the club later.

“I was very, very nervous. I didn’t know what I’d find. I knew there were still people from my time at Castilla. When I entered the locker room I said to myself: ‘Phew, you’re finally here! Forget about what has happened before, enjoy it and live in the moment.’”

The 33-year-old has started out well at the club, having scored five goals and provided two assists in the La Liga this season, which has won the hearts of the Madrid faithful.

The Real Madrid fans have come up with a simple ‘JOSELU! JOSELU!’ chant for the striker, and he can’t explain the joy it gives him. “It’s the best. I can’t explain it. I’ll die and I still won’t have been able to explain it,” the striker added about the chant.
