Real Madrid midfielder Kubo happy at Villarreal

Real Madrid midfielder Takefusa Kubo insists he's happy on-loan with Villarreal.

Under the guidance of Unai Emery at Villarreal, Kubo is enjoying the peace and quiet of where he is living.

"I'm not one to go out much: it was always football, home, football, home..." Kubo added. "Sometimes I did go out with my teammates or a friend in the evenings. You can't now. I live in Benicassim, which is a quiet place and it's almost better that I'm with fewer people.

"Quiet is the best thing at the moment. Because we have the Europa League, some have the Champions League... I get home and there's always a game on. I love watching them, focusing on some players. I really like watching football, although I don't go out.

"I liked going to the sea [in Mallorca] to have a swim, to explore a bit... But we couldn't do that this summer. I was in Japan, but I stayed at home every day because of the quarantine rules."
