Ancelotti reveals Karim Benzema’s position on injury
Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, head coach of Los Blancos, spoke at the post-match press conference about the situation of Vinicius Junior after the incident with racism against him, and also explained the position of Karim Benzema regarding the injury.
Carlo said: “Vinicius? Emotionally, he’s fine. The support he has received is good for him. If nothing bothers him, he can play, we’ll see tomorrow or Friday if he can train to play on Saturday.”
He added: “Cancel the red card for Vinicius? I was surprised because I didn’t think it would happen. They changed their minds and I think it’s the right decision.”
He said: “Measures against racism? I think a lot has happened in general. I think society as a whole has taken responsibility for this, and that’s important. What happened is a very important step towards improvement, and I hope that everything will be resolved soon.”
Ancelotti stressed: “Fran Garcia is an energetic defender, quick on the ball and a good attacker. This is a good profile for us. He will be with us next season.”
And he added: “Today Rodrigo mattered instead of Vinicius. He showed that he had improved a lot, but not yet at his best. I think it’s good that Javier Tebas Vinicius apologizes.
The team coach continued MeringueRodrigo’s holiday? It’s a sign that everyone around him is affected by what happened.”
He concluded: “Karim Benzema injured his leg in the first half and that bothered him. We assessed his situation at half-time. It affected him a little, not much, he played at a good level.”
