Drenthe, Sneijder enjoy first Real Madrid training session

Both midfielders stayed close to fellow Dutchman Ruud van Nistelrooy, who translated the instructions of coach Jordi Garcia for the pair.

"It was wonderful," Sneijder told reporters after the hour-long session, while Drenthe later said on the club's website: "[Bernd] Schuster had very nice words to say about Sneijder and I and we will try to repay him on the field."

Both players are in Schuster's squad for tonight's preseason clash at Real Betis and could see action as second-half substitutes.
