“We put a few things right that weren't going well in the first half”, explained the madridista coach.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke at a press conference after Real Madrid's comeback against Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán giving his thoughts on the LaLiga matchday 32 game: "The first half performance was the coach's fault and the second half was down to the players' quality. We didn't lose our heads. We put a few things right that weren't going well in the first half. We weren't solid enough when it came to recovery in the first half. They probed two or three times in transition and our possession wasn't right. We fixed two or three things".
 
"In the first half we looked a tired team and then the intensity in the second half was amazing. Sometimes in football you can't put your finger on these things. I also don't understand the interpretation of Diego Carlos' handball and Vinicius' handball. It's difficult to comprehend our first-half performance and subsequently the second half as we played with a high level of intensity, concentration and a great attitude. Nothing surprises me about this team. I'm very proud of this second-half performance. I must thank all the players for that".

Rodrygo
“The stats show he makes a big impact. Rodrygo is going to be a fantastic player and he’ll be that from the start too. He’s made the difference time and again, just as Camavinga has when he’s come on. We work towards them both making the difference. Rodrygo produced an incredible second half display”. 
 
Handball against Vini Jr.
“I saw it live and it didn’t look like it touched his hand. I just don’t get it. It’s tough to assess these situations but the this move looked pretty clear to me”.
 
Camavinga
“All we needed was a red card for Camavinga... I feel as though he got the ball but I’m not going to get into it. I’ve said all I need to say”.
