Real MadridHis grandfather led a family that enjoyed the presentation
La history ofBrahim Díazis that of a very humble family in Malaga. And yesterday the Diaz-Abdelkader were almost complete at the Bernabéu: the dads Sufiel and Patricia; las four little sisters Zaira, Idaira, Dunia and Irina; the paternal uncles Abel, Nordin and Youseff; Álvaro de Grado, trusted friend; Grandmothers Dolores and 'Puri'; and, of course, Don Angel, a key element in Brahim's childhood.
Almost all of them arrived from Málaga, everyone got excited …but the most proud was Don Angel. So much so that, confused, he began to queue at the stadium as a fan. Then, 'Sufi dad' took him along with his people and, once in the stands,it was Juni Calafat, head of Madrid's catchment, who led him to the turfto see his grandson. Juni has been the architect-again-of this other young signing. He smelled the boy's potential and he 'snatched' him from the big men in Europe who besieged him. As is.
Don Angel wept a lot, like all the Diaz-Abdelkader, surname of the paternal grandmother, a native of Morocco. "The fields of Malaga that I have traveled with him," said the grandfather while we watched the presentation of the boy on the screens of the Bernabéu."I can die peacefully", he told me between tears. The emotion was mixed with the fact of having successfully overcome a health issue recently. Yesterday was the happiest day in his life.
The grandfather, the father … and Jaime, his sports mentor, a fine former player from Málaga who discovered him when he was six years old and who converted him, from the most professional side,in an adult footballer … before the Premier came to take him throughof the agency of representation of Pere Guardiola, brother of Pep … Nobody wanted to lose it.
