Schuster is turning to the Argentine youngster due to Mahamadou Diarra's injury and Gago says: "I hope to play and hope things go well.
"I haven't spoken to the coach. We chatted at the start of the season and his words gave me a lot of confidence. Whether he calls on me for five or 90 minutes, I want to show that I am capable of playing for Madrid.
"I feel I have Schuster's confidence."
Gago added: "Real Madrid have a great squad. The players who do not start here, would walk into anyother team. But we all need to show this on the field."
