Injuries have plagued the winger this season, but he returned to the Madrid side from a twisted ankle this weekend, coming off the bench in the 3-2 defeat against Valencia. There was no place for him in Van Basten´s squad for Wednesday´s friendly against Euro 2008 co-hosts Austria, though.
And the 24-year-old told Sportweek magazine: "When I was important to the Oranje there was a lot of contact. Now I can´t even remember when I last spoke with him."
