Real Madrid - Cornellà

Ancelotti: “We played a serious game and showed our quality”

NEWS | 02/12/2014

“Jesé was great and now he is another addition to the squad“, added the Italian coach.
Carlo Ancelotti analysed the Whites' comprehensive win over Cornellà in the return leg of the Copa del Rey Round of 32 in the press room: “We played a serious match, were focused and won well, showing our quality, exactly what we had asked for before the game.”

“We never thought about the record and we haven't given it any thought since. We have another important game against Celta and we want to stay top of La Liga, which is our objective. We are happy that the run is still alive and we will work to keep it going as long as we can.”

“He was great. He needs to get used to playing but he's started well and showed a great attitude and scored. It went well for him. I don't think he was scared. He has to get used to the opposition. That is the problem with an injury like his. He is working away in Valdebebas without any problems.”

“Jesé was out for nine months and we have to bring him back bit by bit. He'll get another run out against Ludogorets. We need a bit of time because it is not easy to come back from an injury like that. His recovery has been great and he has worked well. Now he is another addition to the squad.”

“Khedira got a knock to the head but he's fine. He will spend the night in the hospital and will get better.”

“We finished the game with six youth academy players on the pitch. That is great for the club. Zidane is doing great work. He is very charismatic and the players listen to him. He is doing great work and the youth academy players are improving under him, and we are going to benefit from that, just like we did tonight. We get players that are ready to go like Medrán and Llorente. Muñoz was also very assured. The work carried out by the youth academy is important.”

“We have five and with all the games we have to play there is space for all of them. Jesé can play in every position up front. He likes the left wing but he can play as a centre forward.”

“It is not easy for any player to come to Real Madrid but he is demonstrating his quality and showing a great attitude during this period. We are delighted with him and he'll definitely improve. I really like his attitude because he is humble and that is important. Having a humble player with his quality is a perfect ingredient for the team.”

Isco's red card
“We are confident that they will rescind the card. I'm sure they'll rescind it because it was an unfair sending off. Isco is in great form and doesn't have a problem with playing every three days.”

Varane and Illarra
“Varane came off because of a slight muscular problem in his right leg and we thought it best to avoid any problems. He isn't injured. As for Illarra, he has no problems playing with Isco. He can also play in the middle with Kroos positioned a bit further to the right. He played a lot of games with Alonso and can do the same as him.”
