Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Martin Odegaard has earned his first call-up to the Real Madrid first-team squad.The Norwegian teenage sensation has been included on the list of players for Wednesday night’s home game against Almeria. Odegaard joined the Liga giants in January from hometown club Stromsgodset and has been playing under Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane for the Spanish side’s B team, Real Madrid Castilla.There have been mixed reviews of how the 16-year-old is settling into life in Spain, with Spanish media outlet AS initially claiming that he had been ‘frozen out’ by Frenchman Zidane for ‘refusing to train’.”On three occasions, Castilla’s coaching staff have called meetings with the player and his parent to explain the situation and advice him to attend Castilla’s training sessions on a more regular basis,” claimed the report in AS on April 8.Then just a few days later the newspaper refused to give him a mark during Castilla’s game against Tudelano.But the news that Odegaard will be included in Real Madrid’s first team for the midweek La Liga clash suggests that the reports in Spain are wide of the mark, and the fact that he could make his debut during such a pivotal part of the season is a promising sign for the youngster. –
