“A good plan to have them play together”

In a press conference on Wednesday, on the eve of the poster for the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup against Atletico Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the performances of his two midfielders Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga. The Real Madrid coach does not rule out associating the two French internationals one day. “How do we get them to play together? I think for Tchouaméni it’s more difficult to play on one side in a three-man midfield, whereas Camavinga has played many times as a right or left midfielder. I think it can be a good plan to have them play together as defensive midfielders. They both bring a lot of things, energy, quality in the output of the ball. It may be an idea for the future.”

“He helps us a lot defensively”

The Italian coach went into detail on the level of play displayed by the former Stade Rennais player, enlisted in the summer of 2021 against a check for 31 million euros and appeared 27 times in all competitions in 2022-2023 , for twelve appointments. “Enthusiasm is a quality. He tries to cut a lot of passes. Sometimes he arrives a little late and he has very long legs so he stops a lot of balls, but he has to have that energy. Sometimes it can happen that he receives a yellow card, but I think he is a very decent player in that sense. He doesn’t kick without the ball. He is quite aggressive because he has a lot of energy, and sometimes that happens. He is a modern midfielder. He covers the area in front of the defenders very well. He helps us a lot defensively. Against Athletic Bilbao he played an exceptional match. Tactically, he played very well. I’m not saying it was a surprise, but defensively… He did it fantastically. I loved.”
