Take Kubo: ‘It’s an honour to be a part of RCD Mallorca’

The Japanese international spoke with Play Red about his experience at Son Moix and objectives this season

Take Kubo says playing for RCD Mallorca has made his dream of playing in La Liga a reality. 

Impressing in 11 appearances since his loan move from Real Madrid and having scored his first professional goal in Europe against Villarreal, the winger has warned he's only just getting started.

“First of all it’s an honour to be here as a player for RCD Mallorca and part of them,” he told Play Red in an exclusive interview. “I think that my feeling is very good. I have minutes to play now and my team-mates are so good for me, my team-mates and the staff. I’m learning a lot here in Europe, specifically in Spain because I played in Spain before. One of my dreams was to play professional football in Spain and now I’m living my dream. 

“I’m proud, but the most important thing is to continue. It’s not only the first, you have to score a second and third. The most important thing is your situation when you finish the career, not at the beginning. At the moment of the goal, I didn’t feel anything. I didn’t think of anything, but after the match, seeing the picture, I feel like my team-mates love me and they all came to celebrate the goal. It was good.”

We weren’t the only side interested in securing the teenager’s services for the season this summer, although Kubo says the club made choosing Son Moix an easy decision.

“First, Maheta [Molango], the staff and the coach said to me that they wanted me. The most important thing was that the club wanted me, because when you go to a club and they don’t want you and they don’t believe in you, you don’t feel good. This team had confidence in me and it was good for me.”
