The manager of Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti, doesn’t think that he needs to reconsider his decision of going with a 4-3-3 formation in the Liga fixtures this season.
Real Madrid is having a bit of a torrid time in the Liga of late as they have suffered back-to-back losses to slip down to no. 13 in the points’ table.
People are blaming Ancelotti’s formation for the failure of the Blancos, but, the man himself doesn’t agree to that opinion.
According to the 55-year old Italian, the reason behind the defeats is the approach of the players which has not been as aggressive as it should have been.
Talking to the reporters at the end of the Madrid derby which his team lost by 1-2, Ancelotti said, “The formation is alright. It’s just that we haven’t been aggressive enough. Today also, we slowed down after the break.”
“We will have to have a look at ourselves and resolve the issues as soon as possible.”
The shot-stopper of the Whites, Iker Casillas, was treated roughly by some of the supporters of Real Madrid during that Atletico game.
The fans booed the Spain international as they thought it’s him who was responsible for the first goal that Real Madrid conceded.
Ancelotti refused to go too much into that though. He, in fact, said that he didn’t notice the booing.
In Ancelotti’s words, “Nothing was heard by me to be honest. I had been focussing on what was happening on the pitch rather than what was being said by the spectators. And secondly, I don’t think it (the first Atletico goal) was Iker’s error.”
Real Madrid’s next Liga match is against Deportivo La Coruna on 20th of this month. It will be played at Estadio Riazor.
