Ancelotti: An Extraordinary Season, Let’s Finish by Winning the Champions League

Speaking at a press conference after the 4-4 draw with Villarreal, coach Carlo Ancelotti analyzed his victorious season with Real Madrid this way: “The objective in this match wasn’t the points, because we don’t need them. The goal was to play a good game, with intensity, fighting spirit, and avoiding injuries. Everything went perfectly.”

On Brahim Diaz: “He had a very good season, helped us a lot. He, Joselu, Arda… scored many goals. The locker room is ready to train well in these two weeks and try to win the Champions League final.”

On Militao: “Both central defenders tried, even Rüdiger. Militao is getting close to 100%, and we have two weeks left until the final.”

On Lunin: “I liked him, he couldn’t do anything about the goals conceded. He was good with his feet. I think he played a good game. Of course, the goals aren’t his fault.”


On Arda Guler: “The closer he is to the goal, the better he is. He is very efficient, has scored many goals with few shots. He has a special talent, which he shows more near the goal than further away from it.”

On the four goals conceded: “I’m not worried. It was a very open game, with little balance. It was a game to play good attacking football. Maybe we conceded more goals than we should have, but that’s okay. The opponent played very well.”
