Xabi Alonso was delighted for Nuri Sahin after he made his Real Madrid debut in victory over Osasuna.

Sahin, who has been sidelined since his signing from Borussia Dortmund by a knee injury, made his competitive debut for Real in their 7-1 win.

"I want to congratulate Sahin for his debut. He's had to be mentally tough to handle being out for so long. I'm happy for him," said Xabi.
