Diego Lopez has rubbished reports that he is unhappy at Real Madrid, joking that he would only leave if the club were to kick him out of the Santiago Bernabeu on his backside.
It has been claimed that the 32-year-old goalkeeper is frustrated by the fact that he is only Carlo Ancelotti's first choice for league games, with club captain Iker Casillas always preferred for Champions League and Copa del Rey clashes.
However, Lopez says that he is more than happy to fight for the No.1 jersey and insists that he is not in the least bit unsettled.
"I have said many times," he is quoted as saying by Sportyou. "I have three years on my contract and I'll only leave if they kick me out on my ass!
"The rumours are a joke. I'll stay here. I'm very happy here and I will continue to fight for everything."
Lopez joined Madrid from Sevilla during the January transfer window for a reported €3.5 million (£2.9m) transfer fee.
The once-capped Spain international is expected to start in goal for Madrid in Saturday night's league meeting with Almeria at the Bernabeu but is expected to again revert to the bench for Wednesday's Copa del Rey final against Barcelona at Mestalla.
