Ancelotti: “I don’t need arbitration reports, I inform myself”

Carlo Ancelotti, coach of Real Madrid, appeared in the run-up to the league match against Betis with one more gear. Getting rid of the questions that were falling faster than usual. An extra point of speed that he wants to print to his team after the defeat in the first leg of the ‘clásico’ of the Cup against Barça, although he continues to fully validate his game plan. “I have seen him again and I am left with the fact that we had a good meeting. Most of the things turned out well, “he insisted, prolonging the argument that he maintained after the duel.

The Italian is aware that the team has no “margin for error” in the league competition, so he will try to do “everything possible to win” at Villamarín (Sunday, 9:00 p.m.), to which he will jump knowing the result of the azulgrana, leaders of the tournament. Luka Modric will not be there, absent due to suspension and who has not trained in Valdebebas. Nor Lunin, afflicted with gastroenteritis. The Croatian’s name was one of those that was put on the table at the press conference, especially after the debate generated by his figure and that of Toni Kroos in terms of the physical performance they can give.

“I see Karim better”

Ancelotti was very direct in his response. “I don’t think there is a problem with them. The speed of the game is not to run more, it consists of thinking before. They have the necessary experience to do it. They have taught me that the ball is the one that has to sweat, “defended a coach who never denies his leaders, like Karim Benzema, who he released from the lack of goal in recent commitments.

“For a forward it is not possible to always be at the top. We are finding rivals that close very well. I see Karim much better physically than in the first part of the season. At the offensive level we do well. We are the ones who have scored the most in LaLiga. It is true that in the last games we have hit little, but before we put five in Anfield”, justified Carlettowho has firm foundations in his speech, such as acting as a squire of Viniciusso that “he does not lose the illusion”.

Although it is more reflective with newcomers. “Let’s not forget that Tchouaméni had a quick adaptation. After the extraordinary World Cup that he did, he lowered his level a bit, but he will contribute as in the first part of the preseason. I have no doubts, “he said about the Frenchman’s performance, aware that the carousel of matches every three days will demand the most from everyone. But here is a challenge: the balance between the heavyweights and the alternatives that ask for step, like Ceballoswho will meet again this Sunday with Betis.

The situation of Ceballos

However, there is a certain lack of definition when Ancelotti is questioned about the playing time of certain footballers. “Ceballos can play minutes in the next games, but I don’t look at the minutes of the players. I just want to put the best team to win, “he explained after not giving the Andalusian an alternative in a closed game context that benefited him. Also to Rodrygo, who did come out, but was unable to unravel Xavi’s defense.

Carletto He is not afraid and pulls self-sufficiency to fill the potholes of the season. Also to get out of the most difficult issues, such as the ‘Negreira Case’, assumed from the club with institutional silence, but agitated in the streets and in the stands with protests denouncing “corruption in the federation.” “I do not need referee reports, I have always informed myself. It is easy to have knowledge of the Primera referees. You don’t need reports to understand how a referee whistles. I don’t need help in that sense, “she settled, without passing the line of reproach, but reinforcing his profile, something important for him in the weeks that await him.
