Players who are unhappy with life at Real Madrid should leave, coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro has stated.

“Anyone who is unsettled here should head for the door and go,” Lopez Caro told a news conference.

“If they are not prepared to help the team they shouldn’t try and fool themselves or the club.”

Lopez Caro was responding to a question about Denmark midfielder Thomas Gravesen, who has been reported as being unhappy with life on the sidelines at the Bernabeu.

“I haven’t noticed anything amiss with the player, if I had I would have spoken to him about it.

“I can only praise Gravesen as an excellent professional and an excellent person. I am surprised by the things they write about him.”
