After making a comeback from injury, Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has revealed his desire to fight for his place.
Khedira played an important role in Germany’s World Cup winning-performance, but injuries have seen him fall behind in the pecking order behind Asier Illaramendi and new signing Toni Kroos.
Khedira’s contract runs out in June, and is hoping for an extended stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I’d be happy if we found a solution,” Khedira told Stuttgarter Nachrichten.
“I am back at a good physical level and for that reason, I’m confident that soon I will get more of a chance to play,” he said.
“There are other players in my position but that competition is healthy.
“I’m a fan of fierce competition.”
