Núñez joy at contract extension

Real Madrid CF have rewarded promising young midfield player Antonio Núñez with a new contract until June 2007.

Scouts impressed
Madrid scouts spotted the 24-year-old two seasons ago, when he was on the books of local outfit CD Las Rozas. Núñez moved to the Santiago Bernabéu in 2001 and quickly became a regular in the club's B team.

'Dream come true'
He then made a dream debut for the first team earlier this month, scoring a dramatic late equaliser in a 1-1 draw against Villarreal CF. Speaking after the new deal was agreed, the player said: "I am very happy, in fact, I couldn't be happier. It's a dream come true that Real Madrid have put so much faith in me. It's an incentive for me to continue working hard as I have been doing up until now."

Rubén out
Meanwhile, the club will be without Rubén González for the next three weeks while the player recovers from a shoulder injury. The 23-year-old central defender was forced to retire from Monday’s training session after dislocating his right shoulder.
