Ancelotti: Real Madrid has problems in defense..and we risked it for the Mallorca six

After the meeting, Ancelotti said:

“We started well, scored early and controlled the game, we needed that rhythm, but we need to work on defending more.”

He added:

“We played against an attacking team and we had to take risks in the game. Benzema and Vinicius are playing well and also Rodrygo I think he was dangerous and so is Asensio when he comes from behind. They played a good game offensively.”

He continued:

“I put my experience in the team. I give everything I can with experience and confidence, I am fortunate to coach a brave team of high quality and learn quickly.”

He continued:

In the team we have a great mix of experience and youth, the quality of the youth is very high, experience is a very important element in football, I like that those who play a little and are ready, Isco, Asensio and Jovic, it is a very good sign.”
