Every word from Ancelotti’s pre-Atletico press conference




Carlo Ancelotti, the head coach of Real Madrid, addressed the media in a pre-match press conference ahead of the Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey clash against Atlético de Madrid. Here are some key highlights from his statements:

Ancelotti expressed caution despite Real Madrid’s current winning streak: “We have to be ahead of the danger that can arise when you can’t achieve what you want. We are in a very good run, but it will stop at some point, and when that happens, we will be ready.”

Regarding players, Ancelotti praised Mendy’s performance, stating, “What I see from Mendy is excellent. I’m not aware of his contract details, as it’s not my concern.” He also commended Carvajal, calling him a master in his position.

Ancelotti emphasized the positive atmosphere within the club: “I like the environment we have in this club and the locker room. Success is all about this. We have a strong team spirit, playing good football, and being a solid team.”

Regarding the upcoming match, Ancelotti downplayed any psychological tactics: “I haven’t worked on the psychological aspect for provocations. The match will be more complicated than the Supercopa, as both teams aim to win the Copa del Rey.”

Ancelotti discussed Valverde’s flexibility in position and mentioned, “The position of Valverde isn’t clear because he told me he doesn’t mind where I play him. The important thing is that he plays and helps us.”

Ancelotti assured, “I will field the best available team, considering everyone’s fatigue.” He provided updates on player readiness, stating, “Rodrygo needed a day of low intensity, but he’s ready for tomorrow. Lucas will return on Friday.”

In anticipation of the match against Atlético, Ancelotti acknowledged the tough challenge: “The team is well. Tomorrow is another very complicated match because Atlético is a tough rival, especially at home, where they perform well.”

Ancelotti concluded the press conference, thanking everyone for their attendance. The tension rises as Real Madrid prepares for a thrilling Copa del Rey encounter against their fierce rivals.
