Spanish League News: Aurelien Tchouameni is starting to show good performances with Real Madrid. Coach Carlo Ancelotti said he was not surprised. Speaking ahead of Real Madrid’s clash with Real Betis this weekend,
Ancelotti told Marca he was not surprised by Aurelien Tchouameni’s promising start to the season.
“He doesn’t surprise me because we know him well, to invest that kind of money in a player you have to know him. He showed what we expected,” he said, as reported by Football-Espana.
He does have some records for the young French midfielder, who is more used to playing in doubles than triples.
“We work more on the defensive side, because he defends well but he has to get used to the characteristics of his team-mates. Not the same as playing with [Luka] Modric and [Toni] Kroos is like with [Fede] Valverde and [Eduardo] Camavinga.”
Over the years, there has been little room for choice in Real Madrid’s midfield. After Casemiro’s departure, there was an open space. The coach highlighted Tchouameni as the most natural option to play there.
“Because of the characteristics he has, he is the clearest player for the position, but Camavinga has played there and Kroos is very reliable. It depends on how we want to play, if you want more control, Kroos is very clean with his passes, if you need more energy Tchouameni and Camavinga can do better.
