Real Madrid vs Granada Former Los Blancos youth player
Who would’ve thought five years ago that impressive defender Carlos Neva, released by Real Madrid, would now be starring against them in La Liga Santander.
The left-back, still only 23, has also played for Sevilla‘s youth academy and Marbella before making the grade at surprise package Granada.
Injury to Quini and the lack of game time for new signing Ismail Koybasi has given Neva the platform to impress, and he has not looked back since featuring against Barcelona.
Previously playing in the same side as current Spanish international Sergio Reguilon, who is also making waves down the left side at Sevilla, on loan from Real Madrid, has clearly rubbed off on Neva.
Neva has been rewarded with a contract renewal until 2021 at Granada, and will have the chance to impress against Zinedine Zidane and his former side this weekend.
