Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Vazquez proud to fly flag for La Fabrica

Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Vazquez is proud to be an example for the club's academy.

Together with Nacho Fernández and Dani Carvajal, Vazquez is flying the flag for La Fabrica.

Vazquez told AS: "There can be no doubts about the work the Real Madrid youth academy does.

"It's a production line of good players. But breaking into the first team is also about timing, about circumstances. No-one should have any doubts about the youth academy. Every year, it provides players for the top two tiers of Spanish league football.

"Right now there are some very good players in the Castilla and Under-19 teams. It's a question of giving them their opportunity. I'm sure that some very good players are going to come through in the near future."
