Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, coach of Los Blancos Castle, spoke at a press conference after the match with Almeria about Vinicius Junior’s position in the Copa del Rey.
When asked about his anger over conceded goals, Carlo replied: “It was a relaxation on the part of the players. I got angry because this shouldn’t have happened. Looks like game over. This is a very clear sign and should be a wake up call. You can’t level down and focus. If you do that, you concede goals.”
And about Tsvamini, he said: “He is important in this position. This allows us to have good coverage. He is very good in the penalty area when the opponent comes in. He needs to get better with the ball. He’s young and that’s okay. I told him that he didn’t need to move around so much. He had better ball control today.”
And the Italian coach continued: “It never occurred to me that I conceded 6 goals in two matches. We relaxed, and this will not happen in the Champions League.
And he continued: “Tuesday’s match against Sociedad is very important. I wouldn’t just change if someone got tired.”
He explained: “Camavinga can play both as a midfielder and as a left back. Let’s see how Modric feels and then I’ll make a decision.”
