Brahim Diaz: From Isco’s ball boy to his teammate

08 Jan 2019

Real Madrid’s new signing Brahim Diaz was once a ball boy at Malaga during Isco‘s time at La Rosaleda.

Yesterday, though, he became his teammate at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, joining up with one of his childhood idols.

More than two years ago, Brahim posted a photo on his Instagram account of him as a ball boy, smiling in the background as Isco and Santi Cazorla celebrated a goal for Malaga.

“I always wanted to be a professional footballer,” said the former Manchester City player at the time.
