Álvaro Odriozola: all he does is win

Aside of a slight hiccup when he took Ivan Perisic down with an ankle injury, Real Madrid-loanee Álvaro Odriozola had himself a dream season, winning five trophies.

Álvaro Odriozola might not have been on the pitch yesterday when Bayern Munich ousted Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League finale, but the 24-year-old had himself a dream season anyway.

Despite playing in just ten games total during the 2019/20 season — across La Liga, the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal, and the Champions League — Odriozola ended his season with five trophies as Bayern Munich secured a treble (Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, Champions League) while he was on loan from Real Madrid, which won La Liga and the Supercopa de España.

Maybe he’s lucky or maybe this was all part of some grandiose master plan from Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic, but either way, Odriozola did something that is extremely difficult to do.

All that ... and he didn’t even complain about the weather in Germany (unlike some other recent Real Madrid loanees). If you are a club looking to bring in a proven winner, you need to look no further than Odrizola, a true champ’s champ (or is it champ’s champ-champ-champ-champ?).

Congratulations, Álvaro!
