Carlo Ancelotti gave one of the most anticipated press conferences so far this season after the loss against Atlético and the criticism he had to hear because of the decisions he made that didn’t work out. As expected, the coach didn’t even flinch and even joked: “If I had to answer all the criticisms, I would spend the whole day here.”
The critics: “It’s normal when things aren’t good, I don’t care, it’s part of being the coach of Real Madrid. We have to see the things we did well, which were many, and the things we did that mistake, which is small but we have to concentrate. My evaluation is different from what others are doing, I know what we should do considering that so far we have done well, improving things. Every system has its weakness, the rhombus is not the perfect system, each “It has its weakness. This allows us to continue longer and better, but sometimes they pass you because the inside players don’t have time to retreat, and that’s what we’re working on. The deficiency is obvious. .”
News: “Everyone is available except Courtois and Militao. We have to see how we get the minutes.”
Do you want to renew: “Everyone knows that I feel very good here, now it is not the most important issue. There are many games at the moment.”
The goals of the first minutes: “It happened a lot of times and we had to have some attitude. They hurt us a lot of times.”
Doubts are due to the lack of forwards: “You can give your opinion because football is a passion for everyone, everyone should have their ideas. I can’t get into it. Balance is the most important thing and I have it in my genes. I able to evaluate well . Ask everything I think carefully”.
Laughter: “He needs to get used to the team game. What he has shown this season is that he is a great talent, it’s just genetics.”
Why the derby has changed so much: “The only thing that has changed about Bellingham is in defense, in attack it’s the same. I changed Luka’s position to midfielder but I’ve done it before.”
Defense problems: “Yes, we saw the goals conceded. We need to be stronger, with more player positions in the area.”
Reviews: “Can you give me a summary? because I don’t see them. Where are those? No one bothers me (that he says he put Modric and Kroos by order). I don’t dare to leave Modric and Kroos on the bench “It’s not true. They didn’t play much and when they came they contributed. If I had to answer all the criticism I would have to spend a lot of time here and I don’t think it’s necessary.”
If you think about other systems: “As I said, everyone has their advantages and disadvantages. With this, Bellingham’s position gives us an advantage and I think it will adapt to the players we have. Against Atlético we forgot a little bit what should be do.”
What do you think after watching the derby again: “The first two goals conditioned us.
Possible changes: “The mistakes made by the new coaches is that they give a lot of information and I think that a little bit loses the creativity. Without the ball it is concentration, sacrifice and the creativity of the ball depends. I will not say to a player when he attacks. my interpretation of the ball, I won’t go into that because I don’t want to destroy everyone’s creativity.
He is upset that Xabi Alonso is playing: “I have him as a player and he has a lot of knowledge, he has that ability, I hope that he, Raúl or Arbeloa will be the coaches of Madrid because I love them so much and I hope that one day I can they are the coaches of Real Madrid.”
If the rhombus hurts more Kroos and Modric: “No, I think because of the quality and experience they have, they can play in any system.”
Kepa and the goals admit: “He has all the confidence, he’s a very good goalkeeper and he’s adapting very well. The three goals conceded is everyone’s problem. He can’t do anything about the three goals conceded.”
