Real Madrid signing Diego Lopez defends youth system

Diego Lopez is delighted to be back at Real Madrid.

Lopez came through the youth system at Real before moving away for first team football. He was re-signed last week from Sevilla.

"I think that this team has a lot of good players and there just isn't space for all the youth-team players," said Lopez.

"This happens at every club. There are many youth-team players in the first team and others who have had to leave, but that doesn't mean that this club does not give its young players a chance to play. I return full of hope and, because I was a youth-team player, I know how the system works here and I am going to use that knowledge to my advantage."
