Luka modric gave Ancelotti a displeasure this morning and to madridismo. Real Madrid skipped this morning to the last training session prior to the appointment against Almería at the Santiago Bernabéu (Saturday 6:30 p.m.) with a conspicuous absence that had already been guessing in recent days: that of the Croatian. Modric was replaced by Tchouaméni last Tuesday in the 63rd minute of the match in Girona after a few hamstring discomfort of his left leg and after the tests that have been carried out in recent days He will be out for sure against Almería and in the weekday match next Tuesday at Anoeta against Real Sociedad (10:00 p.m.). And it has set off all the alarms for what is to come. Real Madrid plays in 8 days the final of the Copa del Rey in La Cartuja against Osasuna and within 11 the first leg of the semifinals against Manchester City and the Croatian could be low approximately during those two weeks.
Therefore, Carlo Ancelotti you might not have one of your must-haves for big dates that the white club has left this season. The footballer has become a great concern for the Madrid environment, since despite ending his contract at the end of this season, He is a fundamental piece in the scheme of the Italian coach and during this season he has added 2774 minutes between all competitions, being a starter in all the important appointments of the white team this season.
Despite this, it is not all bad news for the white club despite losing one of its fundamental pillars in the decisive stretch. Thibaut Courtoiswho was low in Girona, has jumped onto the Valdebebas pitch with the rest of his classmates in the last morning session. For his part, Ferland Mendy and David Alaba continue with their respective recovery processes waiting to be able to join Ancelotti’s orders as soon as possible and be able to reach one of these key appointments.
The same expects a Modric who will try to shorten deadlinesdespite the fact that the first forecasts are not too optimistic. It is a good opportunity for teammates like Ceballos, Tchouaméni or Camavingawho wait for their opportunity to vindicate themselves and a dilemma for Real Madrid that will have to decide whether to force a 37-year-old footballerto which we must add the last World Cup in Qatar to his legs (he reached the semifinals with Croatia) and whose renewal is still up in the air.
