Real Madrid midfielder, Fede Valverde has revealed that his job at the club is just to run.

The Uruguayan scored his first goal of the campaign in Los Blancos’ 3-2 win over Real Betis last weekend.

“That’s the role of a central midfielder,” Valverde told Real Madrid TV.

“My job is to run until I can’t run anymore, until my legs give way.

“That’s what I’ll always do. As time goes on, I’m correcting things because there are times when running for the sake of running isn’t worth it. You have to make the right choices.”

Valverde also spoke highly of manager, Zinedine Zidane who pushes him to improve at all times.

“The boss is always telling me to get into the box when I win possession,” Valverde added.

“He speaks well about the job we do to press the opponent.

“He asks me to liven up, to attack because I have the physical capability to do it, to break through the lines and get forward.

“[Scoring goals] is really important. It’s not just down to the strikers to score goals.

“We have to help from midfield, just the defenders, in order for Real Madrid to win. That’s our job.”
