Defender Fabio Coentrao says he is happier on loan at Monaco and that the media were unfair to him when he played for Real Madrid.
He told Marca of his feelings toward the Madrid press, saying, "Honestly? Yes, I think they were [unfair]. I feel as though they never gave me the benefit of the doubt.
"If I had a bad game, they attacked me immediately. If I played well, they gave it very little recognition. Even today, I still ask myself why I was the media's 'ugly duckling.'"
