Real Madrid defender Varane proud of his progress

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is delighted with his progress this season.

Varane will start in tonight's Champions League clash with Galatasaray.

"I think it's a major step that will give me experience and I feel good. It's good for me and I'll have to take advantage of it in order to continue growing," said the French youngster.

Asked if a year ago he could have imagined playing in the quarterfinals of Europe's top competition, Varane replied: "Not last year. I was working every day and I never thought of reaching this goal so quickly. Being here now is a great joy and I want to keep getting better in order to play even more."
