Ancelotti says Pepe asked not to play in Champions League final

On the eve of the derby between the Spanish capital and Getafe, Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the 2022 World Cup and the impact of the competition on the course of the season, and eventually made a curious revelation.

“It is important to properly assess fatigue. The player is not so sincere in this sense. He will say that everything is fine with him, and sometimes he is not sincere and gets hurt. I prefer a player who tells me he prefers to stop, but in 30 years only two players have told me that: Pepe in the Champions League final. [ndr: na final de Lisboa em 2014]and Seedorf in league play [ndr: no AC Milan]”, he said at a press conference.

The Italian coach of Real Madrid explained the absence of Benzema at the Getafe home match. “After a month, he has played two games almost in a row and is a bit overwhelmed. This injury slowed him down a little, but I see the same Karim. We weren’t worried at all. In fact, he does the same thing he always does.”

Ancelotti also refused to talk about Haaland, who had been associated with Merengue in recent days. “I’m not talking about Haaland.”

Finally, the coach of the Spanish champion considered that the renewal of Toni Kroos depends only on the player. “He feels very good both mentally and physically. He is always smiling, he is never upset. He always tells me that he never gets nervous before games. If they want to extend, Madrid will be happy. Repair is in your hands,” he concluded.

Thank you very much for the opportunity you gave me! Many thanks to everyone who helped me on this trip! And what a special trip this was!! I was very happy here!!!”, you can read.
