MADRID, 30 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, celebrated a good performance by his team, necessary to beat Girona this Saturday and emerge as leader of the League in Montilivi, while he explained Camavinga’s position on the side and the change of Vinícius.
“Girona plays good football and the team played a solid and convincing game. It was a complete night. Winning here means that we have done well and we must highlight the defensive work, which has been very good. We had the possibility of Creating problems with the ball and defending well has been decisive because Girona plays football well,” he said at a press conference.
The Italian coach explained his lineup, in the midst of a lot of minutes and with Naples on Tuesday in the Champions League. “We have put Bellingham on the outside to avoid Vinícius’ defensive work taking into account that Tchouameni was in the center to cover. The team’s defensive work has been good,” he stated.
“Vinícius wanted to play more and I have decided to avoid problems. He has not played for a month and has no spark, but the 70 minutes he has played are going to be good for him,” he added about the Brazilian. Furthermore, Ancelotti explained Camavinga’s return to the side.
“It wasn’t a case of urgency. Mendy hadn’t played for a month. I thought about bringing in Fran, but by bringing in Vinícius on the outside he needed a side with Camavinga’s characteristics to put more pressure after losing. I think he did well,” he said. .
On the other hand, the white coach was asked about Nacho’s expulsion with the time almost up, for a strong tackle on Portu. “He is a very correct player and that tackle could have been avoided. We are sorry and he has apologized. I hope it is nothing serious for the Girona player. He lacked clarity in the last moment of the match because we won 0-3. The player “He understands it very well and is very hurt and sad,” he concluded.
