Faubert shocked by Real Madrid move

The 25-year-old has joined Real on loan from West Ham.

“I thought it was all a joke at first to be honest,” Faubert told Real’s official website. “It was only afterwards that I realised it was all true and that Real Madrid were interested. I am very happy.

“Everything that has taken place still hasn’t set in. I think that when I start training will be when I’ll realise it’s all real.”

“I am very happy because this is a dream come true,” he added. “Real Madrid are the best team in the world. I couldn’t be happier.

“I want to play and perform my best in every match. I want to play as many matches possible and prove that I belong here.

“My goal is to win a title, it’s for that reason I’ve come to Real Madrid.

“The best players have all wound up here and won many titles. It’s the best team in the world.”
