Asier Illarramendi is delighted to be now seeing action for Real Madrid.

The midfielder's career at Real stalled in the summer due to injury problems, but he featured in victory over Getafe.

"They've really welcomed me and it was a shame that I got injured my first week here. But I'm constantly improving and we'll see if little by little I can get into top form," said Illarramendi.

"The season is long and there will be games for everyone. I have to enjoy the game and the minutes I have."
