Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid’s Italian coach, refused to answer anything about the French striker Kylian Mbappé, after his statements after PSG’s European elimination, and assured that he would “never” answer anything about the footballer who was one step away from signing for the white club but finally decided to renew his contract.
“It is a question that can be asked to me today, in three days, in a month or in three months. It’s a question I’ll never answer.”said without wanting to feed again anything about a possible interest of Real Madrid in Mbappé.
Ancelotti fled from the parallelism of his last season of the first stage as coach of Real Madrid to what he is living in the present, when a streak of irregularities provoked the first criticism of his work.
“I don’t have to go back to 2015, it happens every year. When you have a slightly more difficult time than usual, the criticism begins. It happened last year after Barcelona, I don’t have to go back. It’s my job. I don’t hear the fine rain and if I do hear it I put an umbrella in it, ”she said.
Focusing on the match against Espanyol, the Real Madrid coach highlighted the importance of the next three games his team faces, after having had days to train after nine consecutive weeks with games every three days.
“We have worked as we usually do not. We have done everything, tactical work, the offensive aspect that has not gone well in recent games. ANDWe started an important week with the game against Espanyol, the round of 16 against Liverpool and the classic. We are fine, hopefully we can play a good game tomorrow, ”he assured.
To do this, he warned that the level of concentration of his players must be high and without thinking about the next decisive matches. “It’s an important moment of the season because we want to get to the game against Barcelona on Sunday with good feelings. That means winning tomorrow and going to the quarterfinals of the Champions League”.
“Espanyol is a team that has spectacular motivation, they are going to play a solid game with good defensive organization, with little space and they have good forwards. Joselu is very dangerous in the air ball. From this point on, we have to be motivated and focused because it’s going to be difficult”.
