Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has come out to say that his big doubt this year is over the impact of the midseason Qatar World Cup on players’ fitness and performance. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he believes Real Madrid will not have many problems until the World Cup, but how the players will come back after the tournament is what no one will know about until it happens.
Ancelotti added that Hazard will definitely play more than he played last year because he can play in different positions up front.
His words, “I think we won’t have many problems until the World Cup. The players want to go to the World Cup in good condition,”
“The big doubt is after the World Cup, how the players come back.”
“Usually after the World Cup the players go on holiday. Here the players will come back to begin the important part of the season. That’s where we’ll have to evaluate their tiredness, and think about resting them.”
“We have a very strong squad, you need everyone to stay motivated. We also have a World Cup. We need a big squad, in good condition. So the idea is to rotate a bit more compared to last year.”
On Hazard, “I’m sure he’ll play more than he played last year,”
“He can play in different positions up front. He’s more used to playing on the left, he played on the right last year and did well, and we’ve tried him as a false nine.”
