Real Madrid chief Butragueno: Varane was sensational

Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno was full of praise for Raphael Varane after his goalscoring performance in their 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the Copa El Clasico. The French youngster was superb for the entire game.

"Varane put in a sensational performance and capped his fine display with a header that keeps our chances alive," said Butragueno.

"He's still only 19-years-old and it is quite something to then play against Barcelona without making any mistakes like he did."
