Drenthe excited about Real's chances of glory

Royston Drenthe believes "hungry'' Real Madrid have more chance of success over the coming 12 months than last season's treble winners Barcelona.

Much is expected of Madrid this term following their massive summer outlay on players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Xabi Alonso and Karim Benzema, but it remains to be seen just how quickly and how well all the new faces gel.

In comparison to Madrid's radical overhaul, Barca have so far only made a couple of signings, bringing in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Maxwell to complement the squad that won an unprecedented Champions League, Primera Division and Copa del Rey treble last season.

That would suggest Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side will continue to go from strength to strength, but while Drenthe concedes Barca will be powerful again, he feels Madrid can do better.

"They (Barca) have a lot of quality but we are Madrid and that's that. We have to be optimistic. I think that Madrid this year are going to have more options than Barca, because we are going to have more hunger than them,'' said Drenthe.

"If the fans saw us train, they'd be impressed. We have an incredible hunger.

"We need to work very hard to achieve it, but at the least you have to try. There are a lot of very good teams but Madrid are Madrid and we have to get back to being the biggest. We have the quality to be able to fight for everything.

"I can't promise anything, but I'm going to give it everything to win many titles. I want to fulfil my dream of winning the Champions League. The Champions League and World Cup have been my dreams since I was a kid.''

Although he was tipped as one of the players likely to be moved on by Madrid to make room for the club's new signings, Drenthe has featured in all six pre-season matches so far and looks set to battle it out for the left-back slot next term.

Should the Dutchman claim that position as his own then it would mark an impressive turnaround for the 22-year-old, who last season suffered at the hands of his own supporters at the Bernabeu.

Drenthe insists that is all behind him now, saying: "That episode was one of the saddest of my life, but it's already totally forgotten. When they whistled me at the Bernabeu I was afraid the fans would then start shouting at me on the street.

"I thought they were angry with me, but just the opposite happened. Everyone was good to me. I'm very grateful for that.''

He added in Marca: "I'm the same Royston Drenthe as always, but it's true that now I'm very happy at the club. And that's not just because of the last few games, it's for everything.

"I came to Madrid to succeed and I feel that this is going to be my season. I'm going to show the fans who Royston Drenthe is and that I can be successful here.''
