He is currently playing second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo on the left wing, however the Russian international he is ready to fight for spot.

"It was decided by the club (that he would not leave). It shows Madrid didn’t want anyone to sign me,” he told Sport Express.

"There was interest [over the summer] and even a proposed transfer, but Madrid didn’t want to let me go.

"I realise Cristiano Ronaldo plays in my position but that doesn’t frighten me. When I get a chance, I’ll try to take it. I’m not afraid of anything."

Cheryshev was disappointed not to be included in Rafael Benitez's squad for the game against Real Betis.
