Honorary Division – Speaking of rumors

  • Vitesse – De Graafschap 6-1

Martin Ødegaard (20) signed for a new goal when Vitesse defeated the County 6-1 in the Honorary Division yesterday. In total he has seven sets of goals and Vitesse is in fifth place.

With only one series match, speculation about Ødegaard increases: what happens after the season? Ajax has been mentioned. But is he also good enough for Real Madrid?

– I hear a lot, but I have a contract with Real. A decision will be made about the future in the summer. That is the truth. I have no other story, says Ødegaard to the local newspaper De Gelderlander.

He acknowledges that all problems can be tiring. But after all the sights, he joins Real Madrid in the season race. Then the deck is thrown back into the weather – and a decision will be made.

Viasat commentator Petter Veland – expert in Spanish football – analyzes the situation in this way to the newspaper:

– Where Ødegaard plays, depends on many factors. But if he wants to go one step further, he is dependent on games in one of the five major divisions. The alternative is Ajax or PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

Good season

Ødegaard has had a very good season in Vitesse. He has been named player of the year. The loan contract expires after the season. Vitesse completes the series against VVV Venlo on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old has previously told Dagbladet that he has received good feedback from Real Madrid. He also said that he is going to sit at the club and hear what kind of plans they have for him. What really matters is what he has in his heart.

It is no secret that Ødegaard is more wanted in Vitesse:

– The club wants to cross borders next season. Ødegaard plays an important role in the search for games in Europe. This year the Norwegian was a playmaker in Arnhem, writes De Gelderlander.

Viasat expert Veland has no doubt that Norwegian youth has developed:

– I agree with most of the others: the boy has become a man. He has taken the steps you were hoping to take. He seems more mature. He contributes defensively to a greater extent. The number of goals has increased. And he takes responsibility in the offensive game.


In Real Madrid it is in the cards that there will be replacements this summer. The club has performed under normal standards this season. The third place in the Primera Division – 18 points behind Barcelona and the early exit of the Champions League – is taken over by the supporters.

Part two of the coaching career of Zinedine Zidane at the club was not an absolute success. Last Sunday, the team lost 1-3 losses to Real Sociedad.

Chelsea player Eden Hazard is one of those who come closer to Madrid. He should have had a chat with Chelsea management.

– Yes, I said what I want. But it's not just about me, he says, according to Sky Sports.

Veland sees that Zidane has a pretty big job for her:

– I'm not going to exaggerate and say he needs to build a whole new team. But a lot has happened in the past year with the mentality and the game group. Part of the decline has been explained by a saturated group of players. If a new season does not produce revenge, they are ready as football players. But I think they can return to the level they were at, he says.
