Carlo Ancelotti, Italian coach of Real Madrid, assured that Carlos Henrique Casemiro suffers “a little muscle problem” that will prevent him from playing in El Sadar, like Luka Jovic and Mariano Díaz after the last training session, and revealed that in view of Osasuna give rest to Luka modric.
Casemiro was injured in training on Monday and Ancelotti too on Tuesday lost to Jovic and Mariano, as he acknowledged at a press conference. “Casemiro had a little problem in training yesterday, just like Jovic and Mariano,” he said.
Nevertheless, one week before the semi-final match of the Champions League against Manchester City, the Madrid coach conveyed some optimism about the presence of the Brazilian midfielder at the Etihad. “There are small problems that do not allow him to play today but we have a week to play the semi-finals. I think all three will be available to play against City,” he said.
After the great efforts made against Chelsea, with extra time included, and the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium, ‘Carletto’ sees signs of fatigue in a player like Modric, whom he will rest. “Tomorrow Modric is one of the players who is a bit tired and that’s why I’m giving him a break. He’s not going to play,” he revealed.
