Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard has revealed the reason why he was unable to attend the title celebrations of his international teammate, Erling Haaland, who recently won the German Bundesliga title with Borussia Dortmund.

In an interview with a Norwegian newspaper, Odegaard explained that he was unable to attend the celebrations due to his commitments with Real Madrid. He said, “I would have loved to have been there to celebrate with Erling, but unfortunately, I had to stay in Madrid for training.”

Odegaard went on to praise Haaland’s achievements, saying, “I’m very happy for Erling. He’s had an incredible season and has shown that he’s one of the best strikers in the world. Winning the Bundesliga title is a great achievement, and he deserves all the praise he’s been getting.”

Haaland, who scored 27 goals in 28 league appearances for Dortmund last season, has been linked with a move to several top European clubs, including Real Madrid. Odegaard, who is currently on loan at Arsenal, could potentially be reunited with Haaland at Real Madrid if the club decides to pursue the Norwegian striker.

Despite missing Haaland’s title celebrations, Odegaard remains focused on his own goals and is determined to prove himself at Real Madrid. The 22-year-old midfielder has had an up-and-down season, struggling for game time under Zinedine Zidane before being sent out on loan to Arsenal in January.

However, Odegaard has impressed during his time at Arsenal, showing flashes of the skill and creativity that made him one of the most highly rated young players in Europe. With his loan spell at Arsenal set to end soon, Odegaard’s future at Real Madrid remains uncertain, but the midfielder is determined to make the most of his opportunities and prove himself at the highest level.

In conclusion, Martin Odegaard’s absence from Erling Haaland’s Bundesliga title celebrations was due to his commitments with Real Madrid, but the midfielder remains supportive of his international teammate’s achievements. With the possibility of a reunion with Haaland at Real Madrid, Odegaard’s future remains uncertain, but the midfielder is focused on continuing to improve and prove himself at the highest level.
