Metzelder delighted by Madrid move

Published Add your comment

Christoph Metzelder spoke of his pride at becoming a Real Madrid player after finally completing his move to the Bernabeu from Borussia Dortmund on a Bosman free transfer.

The defender is looking forward to linking up with new coach Bernd Schuster, but insists having his countryman at the helm was not a determining factor in his decision to move to the Spanish capital.

"The club contacted me when Bernd Schuster wasn´t the coach yet, so I don´t think his being the coach has been key for my signing," Metzelder said.
