Ancelotti sends a fiery message to the Real Madrid fans… and comments on the difference with Barcelona in the league
Carlo Ancelotti said at a press conference after the meeting with Girona: “A message to the fans? The fans are offended, we apologize to them, they suffered just like us, Real Madrid fans like us know that we will be in the semi-final and final.
He continued: “We didn’t play as hard as in the last matches. But we started well with the ball. We left a lot of space without the ball. In the first two moments they scored two goals.
He continued: “The team did a good job defensively. We left too much space. We controlled the ball, but every time they pass, we lose control, it hurts us a lot. We must stand up because everything we have is at stake.
He continued: “The team was nervous, I think this issue affected us, Vinicius tried to solve it individually.
And he added: “The difference in the league? It is difficult to reduce the difference, we apologize, but we must look ahead. On a personal level, Vinicius did a good job and gave assists, but the team was not at full strength.
He emphasized: “Nacho? I replaced it to put in the Camaving because it has different specs to push the left wing forward. Don’t blame Nacho, none of the players were at their usual level.
He continued: “Yellow card for Vinicius? There is a lot for a player with such characteristics.
He added: “A defeat is never good, but the commitment of this team is very important for success. If we don’t have it, we will face difficulties.”
He concluded by saying, “If the players are defensive, we will win every game. We have outstanding qualities, but we also need to have reliable protection. We’ve had clean sheets in the last few games and today we conceded four goals. If the players don’t understand this, I’ll repeat it every day.
