Faced with the press, the Real Madrid coach did not find anything positive to draw from the defeat of his players on the lawn of Espanyol Barcelona.
Four days after the surprise defeat against Sheriff Tiraspol (1-2) in the Champions League, Real Madrid lost again this Sunday, on the lawn of Espanyol Barcelona (2-1). A second defeat in a row that does not suit Carlo Ancelotti’s men, who did not appreciate the performance of his players at all.
“Two defeats, it’s not our habit”
In a post-match press conference, the White House coach did not mince his words: this match was simply the worst of the season on the Madrid side. According to him, the international truce comes at the right time to get things back in place. “The worst game for Real this season? I agree, we played badly. There is not much to say. We have not been able to keep our calm, to put in place what we had planned “, first analyzed the technician passed by Paris Saint-Germain.
“The team was not well positioned, with and without the ball. You have to be honest. It’s the worst game of our season, I agree with you. Now we have to use the international window to think about a little about why this team changed their attitude in a week “, then added the Italian, lucid in all circumstances.
