Training faux-pas costly for Faubert

MADRID - Real Madrid midfielder Julien Faubert missed training on Sunday because he mistakenly thought he had the day off, coach Juande Ramos said on Monday.

"The boy got confused, nothing more," Ramos said at a news conference when asked about the absence of the Frenchman, who joined Real on loan from English side West Ham United in January.

"He knows there is an internal disciplinary system and he is prepared to abide by it so there is no problem," Ramos added.
