Sergio Arribas, the talented 22-year-old midfielder, recently shed light on his decision to part ways with Real Madrid and join Almeria for his debut season in the First Division. Speaking to Álex Ivars, Arribas explained the motives behind his move and provided insights into his journey from the Real Madrid academy to a solo life in Almeria.

“For my first season, I’m not looking bad. It’s true that I needed to get out of what Castilla was, I needed to go out to a First Division to gain experience, to get minutes,” Arribas expressed. He also emphasized the importance of exposure to top-tier football for his development. After spending 11 years at ‘La Fábrica’ and making his first-team debut in September 2020, Arribas acknowledged the necessity of learning and improving in his debut season in the First Division.
