Thanks a lot Ancelotti informs Diego Simeone of his remarks on Real Madrid
After their Sunday derby match, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti addressed recent remarks made by Diego Simeone of Atletico Madrid.
Real Madrid maintained their unblemished winning start to the season with a 2-1 victory against their local rivals.
Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. scored for Ancelotti’s team before Mario Hermoso rescued a point for the hosts late in the second half.
Simeone also noted in a press conference following the game that Los Blancos successfully maintained a low block and played solid counterattacking football.
And after hearing Simeone’s comment, Real’s Italian manager declared that he views it as a complement.
“We greet each other before the match with Simeone; his routine is fantastic.
“Yes, we have utilized a low block defense before, and we are accustomed to it. By using a low block, we were able to effectively restrict Griezmann and Joao Felix, eliminating any threat of them breaking.
“I tell Simeone thank you; it is a compliment if he comments that we have defended effectively in a low block,” he remarked.
