the brazilian Vinicius Junior will continue to be out and will miss his second consecutive game with Real Madrid, in the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan before him Seville. This has been confirmed Carlo Ancelottiwho ruled out that his absence is to protect the footballer from racist insults: “Vinícius doesn’t travel because he can’t play, just this.”
Therefore. The Brazilian will be out due to knee problems: “If I had a chance to play, I would travel and play. His knee continues to bother him. It doesn’t matter if it’s at home or away, he can’t play, period. I hope he can play the last game” .
“Vinícius doesn’t travel because he can’t play, just this”
Ancelotti also confirmed the absence of the Frenchman Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio in Seville: “We are going to put out a team to try to win without having the most usual forwards in attack but surely with a very competitive lineup because we continue to have very good players”.
The Italian took stock of the season in League and blamed the poor performance in January after the dispute of the world of selections to the lack of solidity in defense: “We have competed until the end in all competitions, we have left LaLiga a bit behind after the match of Barcelona because the distance went to twelve points. It is evident that the focus was not on LaLiga and we have lost points. Barcelona has had a very good season, they have missed a few games, they have conceded few goals, they have had a lot of continuity and after the World Cup, in January, it was difficult for us to play at our level”.
“It has not been a problem up front because we have scored a lot of goals this season. We are the ones who have scored the most in LaLiga. We have lacked solidity at the back. There is talk of signing a striker but if you look at the statistics you have to sign a defender and not a goalkeeper because we have the best in the world. Sometimes the statistics are a bit tricky and they can’t always explain what has happened”, he analyzed.
Without signings in defense?
However, he has also defended that he does not need reinforcements in his defense, beyond the arrival of fran garcia on the left side: “At the back I don’t think there are many things that have to be done because the defense is fine”.
And he pointed to the left side due to the injuries that have weighed down the course of Ferland Mendy: “A significant injury to Mendy has created problems for us on the left wing but we have confidence in him. He is a very strong winger, he did very well last year and it has cost him more this year. A young man arrives who has done very well well and you can repeat it with us”.
did not want to confirm Carletto the signing of a center forward for next season and dodged the name of Joselu Mato as a candidate: “We are going to work on the squad, talking about names does not seem right to me because the teams are involved in important challenges. JoseluLike other strikers, I like him a lot. Spaniards like blades, morata I like them a lot, those who score goals”.
Message to Hazard
Despite the plague of offensive casualties, Carlo did not confirm the ownership of Eden Hazard nor does he expect news of his departure from the club. “I’m going to talk to him about what Hazard needs to do and not here.” “He has a contract, so it is assumed that he stays and continues here. Like all those who have a contract, if he is not happy he has to ask the club to leave and if he is happy with the contract he will continue here,” he said.
Precisely today Relay publishes that Marco Asensio will leave the white club this summer in search of more minutes in another team. Also, according to Sky Sports the Tottenham I would be willing to negotiate Harry Kane as long as Eden Hazard himself entered the operation. Many open fronts for José Ángel Sánchez and the sports management of the white club.
In moments of taking stock, with no titles at stake for Real Madrid this season, Ancelotti vindicated his work. “It depends on the type of evaluation. In LaLiga it has not been good and I feel bad. If it is from the season it has been good. If it is from the two seasons they have been spectacular and I feel very good. If it is the 4 years I would sign to repeat them winning 10 titles, with two Champions“.
“If they offer me to sign another four years with these results, I would sign it automatically. Not only me, but also the club, I think,” he assured.
In favor of VAR
The controversy unleashed by the goal conceded to Atlético de Madrid against Espanyol on the last day, made Ancelotti position himself in favor of applying goal technology in LaLiga next season.
“Technology is important because since the advent of VAR Many things have improved. Increasing it would be nice. Many other leagues have the one on the goal line and it’s good. It seems good to me that the use increases and that the way of using technology is improved. It would be good to put it in to avoid this type of problem. If it’s a money issue, I think it can be resolved soon,” he said.
Will Nacho continue?
Another desire showed when he spoke of Nacho Fernandez, hoping that he finally accepts the renewal proposal that the club has presented to him. “His future is in his hands. He can stay, with the love of everyone, taking into account how much Nacho can contribute to the squad and the team. The club has spoken with him to renew and he is thinking about the best solution. In a week the season will end and everything will be cleared up”.
