“The series is very good and I’m happy with everyone, those who play and those who don’t,” said the coach.

Carlo Ancelotti analyzed in a telematic press conference at the Santiago Bernabéu Real Madrid’s victory over Athletic. The coach madridista said: “We played against a good team, which has intensity, has not lost away until today and has had two more days off. We have been good in first half. In the second we missed passes and suffered 15-20 minutes. We are a team capable of suffering when they don’t play the football they want. There are others who, when they do. do not manage to do what they want, give up. Real Madrid are not like that because they have a group of players with a very big commitment at the moment “.

“It’s not lucky that we’ve won seven games in a row. When we can’t use our quality, we can use another. I’m very satisfied. I preferred the end rather than the first half, because it looked like an exhibition, where we did not want to create opportunities. At the end of the match, we lacked quality, but no commitment.

Accumulated fatigue

“The team finished tired. That’s normal because we played against a fresher team and we paid it off a bit. I have to do that assessment for the next game. I have to see if the players who finished tired can play. I can also reflect on the five changes: putting players with more quality in the first 60 minutes and players with more energy for the last half hour “.

“When you take the lead of a goal, you always suffer. With 1-0, you will suffer. Anything can happen in football when the score is 1-0. A set piece, a long ball or a individual error “.

An evaluation for the next meetings

“You have to think about the next three games because we don’t have time to rest. I have to assess my decisions. The series is very good and I’m happy with everyone, those who play and those who don’t. They don’t play. The atmosphere is very good and I like that “.

The opponent’s match

“Athletic had opportunities and played well, especially in the second half. But in the first 30 minutes, only Real Madrid played.”

Courtois’ performance

“Courtois is doing extraordinary things. We have to improve in defense. There have been two set pieces where we have suffered and where we have to do a lot better. We have Courtois and we are enjoying it. It’s hard to say which is the best goalkeeper I have had. I have a list of great goalkeepers: Casillas, Diego López, Buffon, Neuer or Cech. Without a doubt, Courtois is the best now “.
