Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti was outraged by the reaction after Rodrygo was substituted.
Real Madrid advanced to the quarterfinals by winning 3-2 against Villarreal in the round of 16 of the 2022-2023 Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) held at Estadio El Madrigal, Villarreal, Spain on the 20th (Korean time).
It wasn’t a smooth game. In the first half alone, they conceded two goals first, leading to 0-2, and only in the second half, Vinicius Junior, Eder Militao, and Dani Ceballos scored consecutive goals to achieve a thrilling come-from-behind victory. Real Madrid will face Atletico Madrid in the quarterfinals.
Trouble between Ancelotti and Rodrygo occurred immediately after the replacement. Manager Ancelotti made the decision to replace Rodrygo and replace Marco Asensio in the 11th minute of the second half. Rodrygo shook Ancelotti’s hand as he walked off the pitch and sat on the bench.
He usually maintains a good relationship with the players with a friendly attitude, but he did not tolerate his rude attitude. Ancelotti approached Rodrygo during the game and warned him with his index finger, “You! You must admit me.”
Ancelotti explained the situation after the game: “When he was substituted, he told me not to forget to shake his hand. He probably forgot.” 카지노사이트
As a result, Ancelotti’s choice was a trick. Rodrygo left and Dani Ceballos, who was brought in with Asensio, helped Vinicius Junior’s chase goal. This goal gave Real Madrid a come-from-behind victory.
“The first half wasn’t good, but the second half showed great characteristics. We fought for everything and changed the story of the game,” Ancelotti expressed satisfaction.
