The head coach of “Real” Carlo Ancelotti commented on the team’s defeat in the match of the 28th round of the Spanish championship against “Villarreal” (2:3), writes sportnews.com.ua.
“It was a difficult game, it was difficult to get the ball back, they possessed it well. We had moments and we could have made it 3-1 and then slowed the game down, but it didn’t happen. We didn’t defend well. True, it is difficult for us to be 100% motivated, this is completely normal. I think that all the players were at a lower level than normal, there were problems with motivation. I was tired after the match with Barcelona. This defeat hurts us, but we have to move forward,” AS quoted Ancelotti as saying.
At the moment, Real Madrid is in second place in the Spanish league standings with 59 points. The team is 12 points behind leaders Barcelona, with the Catalan club having a game in hand.
