By Kim Min-chul Reporter= Carlo Ancelotti’s anger has exploded.
“Real Madrid coach Ancelotti is very angry about the club’s plans for the new season,” Spanish media outlet ‘Sport’ reported on June 6 (KST).
Real’s last season was far from satisfactory. They finished 10 points behind rivals Barcelona in the league and were unable to compete for the title.
Their performance in Europe was also disappointing. In the Champions League quarterfinals against Manchester City, they lost the first and second legs 1-5 on aggregate, and their pride was shattered.
The will to redeem themselves was strong. Real bolstered their squad in the summer transfer window, bringing in Judd Bellingham, Fran Garcia, Joselu, and Arda Güler.
That’s not to say the signings didn’t leave something to be desired. Joselu was a great addition, but with the departure of Karim Benzema, the front line was never the same.
A zero-top tactic emerged as a solution. Ancelotti lined up his midfield in a diamond formation, with Vinicius Junior and Hodriguez up front.
It didn’t work. Real lost their last two friendlies against Barcelona and Juventus. Despite dominating the games, they suffered from a lack of finishing.
According to reports, Ancelotti recently communicated to the club’s hierarchy that they could not go into the new season without a player in the No. 9 role (frontline striker).
He was also unhappy with the lack of signings he wanted to make. “Ancelotti initially favored the signing of Harry Kane over Kylian Mbappe, but this demand was not met,” the outlet said.카지노
Real are reluctant to sign players over the age of 30. In addition, Kane would require a transfer fee of more than €100 million, which would have forced Real to abandon their pursuit early on.
Real set out to appease Ancelotti. The club will reportedly pursue the signing of Dusan Blagojevich this summer if the Mbappe deal falls through.
