Fede Valverde has already played more games as a midfielder than as a winger this season. Against City he shone in his work of short-circuiting the Haaland-De Bruyne connection.


Position where he started

In a single season, Valverde has shown two faces and both are indisputable for Ancelotti. When the campaign dawned, Fede started like a cyclone. As a false right winger, he showed the most unbridled version of him, with a cannon in his leg that soon left the famous ten-goal bet with Carletto an anecdote: against Celtic, on November 2, he scored his eighth goal. A demarcation inherited from its sensational finale of the previous season, with the Fourteenth as a finale. “ He is a very complete footballer who has shown that he can play on the wing with a very good interpretation of the position. He has helped us a lot, he puts in a lot of energy and allows us to be more intense in the games”. This is how Ancelotti explained the reason for his relocation. Nevertheless,As the course has progressed, Valverde has taken a step back to return to his origins, at kilometer zero .


The same engine that he moves on

The Falcon has returned to the engine room, to the role that, until its recent conversion, it had always occupied. If Kroos and Modric closed the door of ownership in midfield, now they are his teammates in the midfield. Toni as a pivot, with Fede on the right and Luka on the left. The recipe for the comeback against Barça in the Cup, for the tie against Chelsea and also for the first round against Manchester City. In fact, Valverde has already played more games as a midfielder this season (28) than on the right wing (23). The last one, against the citizens, where he was excellent in a role perhaps less successful, but as much or more necessary than the unbridled version of him.
