Guti has played down reports of rowing between Real Madrid teammates and winger Arjen Robben.

Asked if Robben is struggling to get along with some at Real, Guti told AS: "He needs time. The team is playing well, it is winning and it continues to lead the table, so it is difficult for him to get into the starting line-up.

"But he is going to have minutes that are going to give him confidence and allow him to demonstrate that he can play for Madrid."
