Royston Ricky Drenthe is a young Dutch U-21 footballer who currently features for the Spanish and European giants Real Madrid. He is essentially a left back who looks impressive as left winger too. He has been playing at Real Madrid since the start of the 2007-2008 season.

Drenthe commenced his professional career with Dutch giants Feyenoord and came through the youth ranks at the club. He started playing for Feyenoord’s first team from 2005 and made 26 appearances for them in his two years at the club.

Real Madrid then came calling after Drenthe had impressed in his second and last season at Feyenoord. He did start for Bernd Schuster’s side in the firs few games of the season but then lost his place to Marcelo in the Real Madrid starting line-up but has since then featured as a substitute in matches.

Drenthe was called to the Dutch U21 national team in the summer of 2007 for European Under21 Championships.
