Carlo Ancelotti had a press-conference before the game against Sheriff. The Champions League game would be really interesting.
Winning places in the Champions League
Real Madrid will look to return to winning ways in the Champions League as Sheriff visit the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, yet in the wake of a disappointing 0-0 draw with Villarreal, Carlo Ancelotti has made clear that whilst he may think his approach was wrong, he will never officially admit it.
This confidence in his convictions is one of the reasons Ancelotti was regarded highly enough by Florentino Perez to be brought back to the club, and his start to the 2021/22 campaign has actually been rather positive. Of course, you can ask me if the approach was wrong and I can think that it was, but I’ll never officially admit it,” Ancelotti explained in his pre-match press conference. Sometimes criticism can help you improve. I don’t have an A team or a B team, I always choose the players to start that specific game.
Young generation is taking a control
Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde look to be the midfield pairing of the future for Los Merengues, yet Ancelotti feels as though it is important to have depth in the position. It’s important for us that in the middle we have Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Valverde, Isco, Asensio and Camavinga,” Ancelotti added. They will all be useful, the difficult thing isn’t to select a team. In the past I have rarely had a midfield with this quality, the difficulty comes when you don’t have players this good. With construction work having now been virtually completed at the Bernabeu, the visit of Sheriff will be the return of the Champions League to the stadium, bringing to an end the use of the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, and there is hope the boost in atmosphere will help the team.
