Drenthe: I'm mentally tough enough for Real Madrid

Royston Drenthe has no regrets over his move to Real Madrid. The young Dutchman enjoyed his best moment in a Real shirt on the weekend, winning a last-minute penalty against derby rivals Atletico - which was converted by teammate Gonzalo Higuain to hand the visitors a crucial win. "I play with one of the best clubs in the world, I do my best every day to improve myself and to be ready for the coach," said Drenthe. "Those who say I am not mentally strong enough to play for Real do not know what they're talking about."
