Javier Balboa has confirmed he's settled his differences with Real Madrid teammate Pepe after Friday's training ground bust-up.

The young midfielder said: "It was just something that can happen in training. A simple mistake, both mine and Pepe's. We have spoken and we've settled everything. There's no problem."

On his own situation, Balboa added: "The truth is that since the last time I spoke with the media, my luck has changed. Bernd Schuster has played me more and now I feel part of the team."
