Spain U21 coach De la Fuente wants Real Madrid midfielder Brahim playing consistently

Spain U21 coach Luis de la Fuente admits he'd like to see Real Madrid midfielder Brahim Diaz playing consistently.

De la Fuente also admits being disappointed seeing Dani Olmo leave Dinamo Zagreb for RB Leipzig, instead of returning to Spain.

He said, "Dani Olmo is always right when he makes a decision. He is very well advised. The only thing I want, for his sake and for the good of Spanish football, is to keep up that pace and continue to grow so to have a great footballer for the future.

"Regarding Jesús Vallejo and Brahim the most important thing is that these young players play and I wish they had that opportunity in a club."

Vallejo left Real for Granada yesterday on-loan to the end of the season.
