Real Madrid's Baptista: I never gave up
Julio Baptista is feeling his best at Real Madrid since the arrival of coach Bernd Schuster.
"I have never doubted my ability. I know that to succeed I must suffer and work hard. I do not know another formula other than to work and work. I have suffered in silence all the time that I have not played. But I never surrendered. I have never protested," said Baptista. "I know I have overcome a bad period." He added: "Now I am taking my chance. I have won the trust of Schuster and now I need to work hard so this continues."
