LaLiga: Thank you – Ancelotti tells Diego Simeone over comment about Real Madrid

 


Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has responded to his Atletico Madrid counter-part, Diego Simeone’s recent comments after their derby game on Sunday.

Real Madrid defeated their city rivals, 2-1 to maintain their perfect winning start to the season.

Ancelotti’s men scored through Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. before Mario Hermoso pulled one back for the hosts late in the second half.

And speaking to reporters after the game, Simeone said that Los Blancos successfully kept a low block and played good counter-attacking football.

And Real’s Italian boss said he takes Simeone’s comment as a compliment upon hearing it.

“With Simeone, we greet each other before the match, his custom is good.

“Yes, we have defended with a low block and we are used to it. We removed the danger of breaking the Griezmann or Joao Felix, the low block allowed us to control them well.

“If Simeone says that we have defended well in a low block I tell him thank you, it is a compliment,” he said.
