Casemiro insists he's happy at Real Madrid.

The midfielder has found himself frozen out this season.

"I'm calm. I turn up to training every day full of hope and feeling happy. I'm part of the Real Madrid squad and many people out there would love to be in my place.

"I'm working hard to make the most of my opportunities and be ready. I work hard and I respect the gaffer's decisions. It's a pleasure to be with real Madrid and at this stadium, I love it."
