Metzelder confident he has Real Madrid future

Christoph Metzelder is confident he can re-establish himself at Real Madrid.

The Germany defender has struggled with injury and form since joining Real 18 months ago, but insists: "I'm very optimistic, with the change in coach things have changed and I can have continuity in Madrid.

"But at a club like this you have to wait to see what the plans are at the end of the season."

Without criticising Bernd Schuster, Metzelder said of coach Juande Ramos: "He has a different approach to dealing with players. I know, from a conversation with him, that he is satisfied with my work."
