Luka Romero: “It was an unforgettable moment”

Luka Romero, born in Mexico but with Argentine nationality, he made history this Wednesday in the match that his team, the Majorca, lost to Real Madrid (2-0); since he became the youngest footballer to debut in the League with only 15 years and 219 days, a moment that he defined as “incredible” and that he “will never” forget.

“It was an unforgettable moment. Thank you to the entire coaching staff and to Mallorca for giving me this opportunity. I will never forget this day. It was a pity to lose, but we continue to believe # TillTheLast Drop,” he wrote in his official account of Twitter.

Romero entered the field of play in the 84th minute to replace Lago Junior and thus surpassed Francisco Bao Rodríguez “Sansón”, who debuted with Celta de Vigo at 15 years and 255 days. His coach, Vicente Moreno, praised him at the end of the match.

“Above all, more than just saying a lot to him on a tactical level, trying to reassure him. I reached for his heart and he was going 2,000 revolutions. We are talking about a boy who is 15 years old. He is a boy who, if we have put him there to play, is because we think he deserved it and that he has conditions. In training we are giving him incentives and he is taking them and getting better every day. It was a matter of looking for a moment to debut and to see the future, you will see because he is a great player, “he said in statements to Movistar +.
