Rayo Vallecano's hat-trick ace Raul de Tomas: I had to leave Real Madrid

Rayo Vallecano striker Raul de Tomas says his hat-trick against Celta Vigo justifies his decision to leave Real Madrid.

De Tomas, on-loan from Real, hit his treble on Friday night for the 4-2 win.

"I could have been at Real Madrid [this season]," he said to COPE.

"Julen Lopetegui wanted me to stay but I am a competitive person and I didn't want to spend the year sitting on the bench.

"I would have had some chances but competing like I am now is what really helps you to grow and that's why I wanted to be here."
