Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is pleased to be back in action.

Varane is delighted to have been called up by coach Carlo Ancelotti since returning to full fitness.

"It's flattering to have the confidence of Ancelotti, it gives me strength to go on. I have the luck to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world, we have the best defence and competition is fierce.

"I get along with Zinedine Zidane, who is working hard and I am evolving and growing."
