Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid’s head coach, stepped into the impromptu press room at the Arandina stadium to share his insights on the team’s performance and their advancement to the Copa del Rey round of 16.

Real Madrid secured their spot after a challenging match that saw Brahim play a decisive role in all three goals.

Ancelotti began by praising Güler’s performance, stating, “Güler had a very good hour on the pitch. He has quality and personality, but he needs to improve physically. I insist that we must have patience with him.”

Turning his attention to Brahim, Ancelotti acknowledged the player’s impact on the game, saying, “Brahim has missed many passes, but he has been determinative. The match started well, but afterward, we began to falter in our passing.”

Speaking on Camavinga’s condition, Ancelotti reassured, “He is feeling well. He had a knock on the back, but the knee is in very good condition.”

Discussing the midfield, Ancelotti clarified Tchouaméni’s role, stating, “Tchouaméni is a pivot, and only in emergencies will he play as a central defender. In the next match, Nacho will be in the central role. Mendy is set to return tomorrow. Then my job is to choose the best eleven.”

Regarding their status as favorites in the Supercopa, Ancelotti remarked, “The Supercopa is short; that’s an advantage for everyone. We have confidence, especially with the medical room gradually emptying.”

On the goalkeeping situation, Ancelotti declared, “The player who starts in the Supercopa will not necessarily be the regular starter. We will take it game by game.”

Expressing gratitude for their stay in Aranda de Duero, Ancelotti commended the hospitality, stating, “No complaints at all. We have been treated very well, and the people have been able to enjoy what Real Madrid is. Additionally, the lamb, wine, and hotel have been excellent.”
