Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster insists Robinho remains part of his first team plans.

The Brazilian has fallen off the radar at Real in recent weeks, but Schuster said: "The player has not changed and neither has my opinion. Being an important player at Real Madrid does not mean that he must play every game.

"Due to circumstances, he has not been able to get the necessary rest, but we've tried to accommodate that as he is an important man. We're looking for his return because he is now completely recovered."
