Outclassed by FC Barcelona (1-3), Real Madrid did not exist this Sunday during the Spanish Super Cup final. Disappointed, Argentine coach Carlo Ancelotti was lucid about the level displayed by his team.
Real Madrid was largely beaten this Sunday in the Spanish Super Cup final against its great rival, FC Barcelona. After the match, Carlo Ancelotti analyzed his team’s defeat.
“It’s a difficult time.” We already knew before the match that we weren’t at our best level. We gave them two goals. We made mistakes, but we will come back stronger. We made a lot of mistakes.
We lost 25 balls in the first half. We were just bad; I cursed the technician at the broadcaster’s microphone. Barcelona played better, and that’s it. When you concede three goals, it is obvious that you have to change something and fix this problem. We lost many duels; we were bad in every aspect. The players are heartbroken. They are used to winning. But I’m sure we’ll be back. Real Madrid always comes back.
On the other hand, the Italian technician got angry with a journalist who spoke of “humiliation.” “We beat them in La Liga (3-1 in October, editor’s note); it’s a lack of respect to say that,” he said.
On January 19, the Merengue club will have the opportunity to return to success against Villarreal in the King’s Cup.
