Ancelotti: “I signed to repeat these four seasons”


Carlo Ancelotti addresses the media ahead of Saturday’s match against Sevilla at Sánchez Pizjuán (7:00 pm, DAZN) which coincides with the penultimate day of the Liga.

Vinicius injury

“We have the casualties of Vinicius, Benzema and Asensio. Vinicius is not traveling because he cannot play, his knee still hurts. If he has a chance to play, he will travel and play. I hope he can be with the last game”

The collapse of the league

“In all the competitions we competed but we were left behind in the League. After the game against Barça we fell to 12 points and we lost focus. Barcelona had a very good season because they made very few mistakes, they have had a lot of continuity and they have conceded few goals. After the World Cup, it was very difficult for us to play at our level. It was not a problem with the forwards. We have the most goals, we are lacking. solidity at the back and we have the best defense. Sometimes statistics are deceiving. little, you can’t always explain with numbers what has happened”.

Balance of his four seasons

“The league has not been good and I feel bad. The season was good and if I evaluate the two seasons, it was very good. If I evaluate the four years that I have been here, I will do it again without thinking about it. We’ve won 10 titles . I would sign immediately and the club too. Two Champions, two semis…”

VAR and goal technology

“Since the arrival of VAR many things have improved. The goal technology is good and it is good to put it. This is something that needs to be solved as soon as possible. I am in favor of increasing the technology but you have to use it well”.

Planning for next season

“We are working on improving the squad, don’t worry. Talking about names now doesn’t seem right to me because the players and the clubs have important challenges ahead.

Nacho continued

“We know what Nacho has contributed and what he will contribute. The club has talked to him to renew and is deciding what is best for him. The future is in his hands and he can stay, with love of everything. In a week the season ends and everything will be clear.”


“We were all surprised at the beginning of the season but after the World Cup his level dropped. It’s normal for someone so young to come to Real Madrid, he has to adapt. He’s replacing a legend like Casemiro and that’s not Simple. It’s not true that he’s the third pivot option, in the last 9 games he’s played 8 there”.

Left side

“This year we had a big injury with Mendy who created problems for us on the left wing. Last year he was very good, he was very strong and we should trust him first. Now a young man has arrived (Fran García ). which has done it very well. In defense we don’t have to change anything”.

Match against Sevilla

“We are missing three usual strikers but we will draw a competitive line-up because we have very good players. We are motivated and we have to play professionally for the shirt.”
