Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben spoke of his delight after finally being able to make his Real Madrid debut during the Champions League clash with Werder Bremen.
Robben, who had sat out Real's opening three league games as he worked on his fitness, was given a standing ovation by the home supporters when he replaced club captain Raul towards the end of last night's 2-1 Champions League win.
'I felt very good. I have waited a long time for this moment and I am very happy,' said the 23-year-old Dutch international.
'We have started the Champions League very well, but I need to play more minutes to be better.
'I was not anxious to play, but I am very satisfied to have been able to make my debut at last.'
