Villarreal coach Emery insists Real Madrid attacker Kubo 'has had enough chances'

Villarreal coach Unai Emery says he won't play favourites regarding Takefusa Kubo.

Japan international is on-loan at Villarreal from Real Madrid and expected to have his loan cut short in January after struggling for regular action under Emery.

And Emery reasoned: "Opportunities for young players? They all had it.

"But we are not here to give ten games in a row to one inefficient player. If we give playing time, the player must make sure to give more.

"This is valid for young players as well as for others. There is a requirement here: to win."
