Ancelotti reveals his plan to stop Haaland
During a press conference before tomorrow’s match, Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti said: “This is a more cohesive team. They had a very dangerous striker last season in Gabriel Jesus, but he is very different from Haaland.
He continued, “Now they benefit from long passes. This does not mean that they have changed the style. They are well organized defensively and play well with the ball.”
And on the question of how he will stop Haaland in tomorrow’s match?, he replied: “He is a very dangerous player. He has excellent scoring qualities.”
And he added: “Talking about Haaland means not talking about the whole team that is attacking and that has ideas. We are preparing for the match not to stop Haaland, but to stop a team that seems invincible.”
But I think we may have options. We can win.”
And he continued: “The plan for tomorrow is to play a complex match and give everything to the maximum on the physical, technical and motivational levels. The decisive match will be the second leg, but we want to benefit from tomorrow’s match.”
