Ancelotti: "The team played well and deserved the win"

NEWS STORY. 08/10/2022

"I come away very pleased because last season we slipped up here and we were more solid, and stronger in our duels this time around", explained the Italian.

Carlo Ancelotti appeared in the press room at the Coliseum to assess Real Madrid's win over Getafe: "The team played well and deserved the win. I come away very pleased because last season we slipped up here and we were more solid, and stronger in our duels this time around. We also managed to keep a clean sheet which is hugely important because we showed real intensity and defended very well. Militão and Rüdiger were fantastic, as was Tchouameni in front of them".

"Sometimes you have games where you feel very comfortable on the ball. We scored early on and that helped us not to rush things or force the play too much. We moved the ball well and controlled the game but we weren't as clinical up top as we have been on other occasions. We've created a lot of chances over the last couple LaLiga games but we haven't scored many goals".

El Clásico
“It’s still a long way off. We’ve got a game before then and I may rotate the team a bit more on Tuesday and give the players who are feeling the most tired a rest.”

Valverde’s position
“I’ve spoken to him and he told me that his favourite position is to be out there and playing. He doesn’t enjoy being on the bench.”

Hazard
“He’s fine and is training well. He’ll get his chance very soon.”
