The chulapos of the Derby: how many players from Madrid are there in Real Madrid and Atlético

Every May 15, San Isidro makes chulapos and chulapas from Madrid and people from Madrid deck themselves out to celebrate their patron’s feast day. What better than a Derby between Atleti and Madrid to serve as the opening act for the great party in the capital. Sunday (9:00 p.m.) at the Wanda Metropolitano there will be no vests, jackets, carnations, boots or neckerchiefs on the pitch, but there will be there will be some chulapo with red and white or white uniform. Ancelotti and Simeone will be in charge of deciding how many. They will have four options (plus two asterisks). With the calls in hand, it is Atlético that has the most candidates to be part of the starting eleven. Not only because of quantity, but because of their importance.

Although they may not have a Mario Hermoso who is out due to injury, Koke and Marcos Llorente They have many ballots to start the game as starters. The absentee was trained in the rival youth academy, La Fábrica, where he arrived at the age of 11 after kicking a ball for the first time in the Concepción Soccer School, from the neighborhood of the same name located in Ciudad Lineal. In it CD Las Rozas and Roceña Football School Marcos Llorente grew up, who has a past in both quarries, but who was also one of the most bombastic promises of the white team. In addition to a family with endless Derbies behind them: son of Paco Llorente, grandson of Ramón Grosso, nephew of Julio Llorente, great-nephew of Paco Gento… While Koke’s blood has been red and white since he was six years old, when he was discovered by the Atlético de Madrid and Vallecana schools, because his parents lived in Vallecas when little Jorge Resurrection was born. Two potential chulapos for Cholo’s eleven on Sunday. The rest will be in the stands.

Ancelotti the one with those two asterisks. The first is Dani Carvajal, who has been in Madrid since he was 10 years old. Moment in which the white team incorporated him into their quarry, leaving an image to remember when, at the age of 12, he was one of the children who laid one of the first stones of Real Madrid City. Until his landing at La Fábrica, his club was Lemans from his neighborhood of Leganés. Hence, it appears as chulapo with an asterisk. You may have minutes, but the rotations of Carletto They aim to give the opportunity to a Lucas Vázquez who, although he is a youth squad player, is not from Madrid by birth but from A Coruña. The one that does have ballots to leave the start is nacho fernandez, also halfway cool, since, even though he’s a full-fledged ‘One Club Man’, his origins are from Alcalá. There, in his native Alcalá de Henares, he started his love of football at Colegio San Gabriel and at AD Complutense Alcalá, until he joined Madrid at the age of 11.

And finally, Diego Piñeiro, the usual third white goalkeeper who, at 18 years old and after training at the Vicálvaro School, will have to wait to make his debut in a Derby. A chulapo in a future code, two half-assed chulapos and one goal: embitter the classification for the next Champions of its maximum rival. In addition to putting his grain of sand in the great Madrid football party that, curiously, will be a week before the great party of the people of Madrid.
