The strategist Carlo Ancelotti expressed this Sunday the importance of having a forward of the caliber like Joselu in the lead of Real Madrid, after the Spaniard sealed his team’s 2-1 victory against Real Sociedad with an unstoppable header.
In a press conference after the match, Ancelotti said that for the team Joselu represents a guarantee of a goal, ensuring that last season they did not have a natural header for crosses from the sides.
“Joselu is a guarantee, he is a player who plays very well from behind and from the front. He is very dangerous in the opposing area and has a fantastic header.. For us it is a guarantee and we know perfectly well what it can bring us,” she said at a press conference.
He later stressed the importance of the attacker because according to Ancelotti’s opinion there is no other player in the squad with his characteristics.
“His role is an important position in the squad because in attack we do not have any player with his characteristics. For us, in some games, he is very important because he covers the opponent’s area well, he is ready in the crosses and it is no coincidence that he scores these two goals at home. It is a quality that we did not have last year of centering and scoring goals with a header. With him we have one more option,” he added.
After praising Joselu’s game He dedicated himself to self-criticism, explaining that Real Madrid must make corrections in defense in order to avoid having to continue sealing comebacks. like the ones against Almería, Getafe and against Real Sociedad this Sunday.
“We have to evaluate it, it’s true, out of five games we have started three by conceding a goal. The good thing is that we have been able to come back, the bad thing is that we have to avoid it because it is difficult to get into the game and then to recover we have to make more efforts. Today against an opponent that plays very good football it has cost us more and we have done it thanks to the energy of the team. We are capable of having an intensity in games that makes it difficult for rivals to hold up for 90 minutes,” he concluded.
