Mahamadou Diarra admits his future is in the hands of Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon and coach Bernd Schuster.

"I am happy, but I cannot say much more than my president or my trainer. They decide. In Spain they like the football of Robinho or Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United), but I cannot play like them," said Diarra.

Asked about Schuster, Diarra joked: "I have shown great patience with him because two months on the bench was not easy (laughter)!"
