Except for the recent defeat against Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid had an almost perfect start to the new season with 5 previous consecutive victories.
The most obvious change in coach Carlo Ancelotti’s use of personnel recently is creating conditions for young players in the midfield to play. Los Blancos are gradually becoming less dependent on two “veterans” Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in the midfield.
However, in the confrontation with “neighbor” Atletico, Ancelotti suddenly “bet” by once again using the Croatian and German couple. As a result, Real suffered a 1-3 loss on the day Modric and Kroos both played under their strength.
After the defeat that caused the White Vultures to lose the top spot, the Italian strategist took full responsibility for himself, but everything did not stop. According to a report from The Athletic, president Florentino Perez Feeling dissatisfied with Modric and Kroos.
Although they were once heroes who helped Real achieve a lot of success in recent years, age issues are gradually hindering these two talented midfielders. And their recent performances on the field have no longer satisfied Perez.
This leads to the fact that the Bernabeu team may part ways with Modric and Kroos in the near future, although they have spent a lot of effort convincing them to extend their contract for another year. It is known that in addition to the two pillars mentioned above, Ancelotti’s own future is not guaranteed, as information has appeared that Real is targeting Xabi Alonso to replace the 64-year-old coach.
