Ancelotti’s first comment since Ramos retired from international football
Ancelotti said during a press conference: “No. I would like to have an eight-point lead so I can win 5-0 at Anfield and win the Spanish Super Cup. But we are doing well, given the absence we have suffered.”
And when asked about Ramos and “how he sees the age issue,” he responded by emphasizing: “If a player is capable of giving back, his age doesn’t matter. If he’s 17, he should play because he deserves it. The same applies to a player who is 35, 36 or 37 years old, you have to evaluate him every day. Sometimes people say that I don’t use the youth sector enough, but I brought the 17-year-old goalkeeper Buffon. I made this decision at the time because it was special, better than others.”
And he concluded: “The same applies to a player at the age of 40, if he is able to win the Champions League, as Maldini was at the age of 39, he trained once a week, but participated because he is better than others. If you are better than others, you should always play.”
