Real Madrid's Raul aware of selection debate

Real Madrid captain Raul accepts the debate swirling about his status in the team. There's been a push for Raul to be dropped in favour of Argentine Gonzalo Higuain and the striker said: "Every season it is going to become more usual to see me on the bench. I've been playing football for 14 years and I have played many games. We are all here to help, sometimes leaving from the bench and others starting on the field.

"There will not be any problem."

Raul added: "When I've not scored in five games there is debate. Anyway, I am not disappointed. I'll keep fighting."
