Carlo Ancelotti had problems in his first spell in Madrid. Italian coach had two options – Diego Lopez and Iker Casillas.



Playing both goalkeepers throughout the season

As you may know, Carlo Ancelotti loves rotating goalkeeper positions. He did the same thing in AC Milan when there were two big goalkeepers. Dida was playing only in the Champions League and Italian cup. The same thing happened in Madrid. During his first spell, Carlo Ancelotti had two goalkeepers. Both of the goalkeepers were the best in Europe by that time. Carlo Ancelotti chose to focus more on Diego Lopez. Spanish goalkeeper was the starter in La Liga and played both seasons from the first minute. Iker was playing only in the Champions League and Copa Del Rey. Keep in mind that Real Madrid won only the Champions League and Copa Del Rey in the first spell of Carlo Ancelotti. He had a big headache because Real Madrid fans wanted to have Iker Casillas in the starting line-up of La Liga. 


New era of Carlo Ancelotti in Madrid

Currently, there is only one top-tier goalkeeper in Madrid. Thibaut Courtois is ready to dominate Madrid again. He was the main player for Real Madrid’s success the last two seasons. Courtois had many saves two seasons ago when Real Madrid won La Liga title with Zinedine Zidane. Carlo Ancelotti knows that Thibaut will be an undisputed choice for the goalkeeper position. Along with Courtois, Real Madrid has Lunin who can also defend well. The youngster from Ukraine can do everything perfectly on the pitch. That’s why Carlo believes that the goalkeeper position is in safe hands. Carlo knows that Courtois does not have to prove anything to anyone in Madrid. He was the top-tier player of Madrid in the last two seasons and Carlo wants to keep the same pace in next season too.
