Esteban Granero says he'll remain patient as he battles for a place in Real Madrid's first team.

The midfielder admits: "This is Real Madrid. If it was easy to play here it would not be Real, but another team. That is the greatness it has.

"The other day (against Osasuna) Raul came before me, but he's also a determinant player who can swing the balance at any time. I can only say that I'm doing the right things by training hard and being professional."
