Arda Güler is turning everything around

Carlo Ancelotti had called for patience with Arda Güler, and it is clear that time proves him right. Plagued by injuries upon his arrival last summer, the 18-year-old Turkish international was only able to make his debut for Madrid in January. A long crossing of the desert, but from which he was able to emerge re-inflated. By joining the club of his dreams, Güler was obviously aware of the sharp turn that awaited him, where the competition is fiercer than anywhere else… But in the end, it’s always the pitch that speaks.

By taking refuge in work and without taking into account everything that could be said or written about him in recent months, the former Fenerbahçe player carved out a place for himself in the Madrid group. And it is on a hungry basis that he has approached each meeting for a month, with the ambition of convincing his coach Carlo Ancelotti. After scoring his first goal in La Liga against Celta Vigo at the end of March – all while having played only 2 minutes – the Turk activated the DRS and no longer really wanted to brake.

3 goals in his last 4 matches

If Real Madrid was already almost certain to finish the season as champion at the end of April, Güler has brought his club a little closer to this objective. Against Real Sociedad (1-0), on April 26, it was he who scored the only goal of the match. Life, fantasy, efficiency, and also, the praise of the Madrid press, which had nevertheless been merciless with him until now. Last weekend against Granada (4-0), Güler was again able to dig into the right drawers, at the right time, to score his 3rd goal in La Liga, before repeating it yesterday evening.

Entering in place of Eduardo Camavinga at the hour mark, during the derby against Alavés (5-0), the Turk only needed 20 minutes to emerge, once again. Sensing a bad dismissal from the opposing defense, the left-hander crucified Owono at his near post. 4 goals in 275 minutes (i.e. on average 1 goal every 68 minutes), this is Güler’s more than honorable record in La Liga this season. “We love him very much. The whole team, all the staff appreciate him very much. He’s the youngest on the team, he has a gift. He scores goals even when he shouldn’t, the ball is in love with Arda, that’s clear. We are very happy that he is here and that he can be here in the future”, praised Carlo Ancelotti about his player after the match. Enough to cool potentially interested clubs this summer…
