Zapping World Eleven EXCLUSIVE: Jonathan Clauss’ “Little Brother” interview!

La Liga regains its rights. Real Madrid travel to Valladolid after almost a month without a game. Merengue have the opportunity to temporarily regain the lead in the championship at the expense of Barça. Present at the press conference, Carlo Ancelotti spoke on many topics, from the controversy surrounding Karim Benzema’s absence at the World Cup, to Leo Messi’s place among the best players in history, and went through rumors that sent to Brazil’s head. .

The Benzema case

“I did not participate in this decision. A very motivated player has returned with us and we are convinced that in the second half of the season he will do a lot for us. He came back on the 10th day of the holiday and when he came back, he was quite good. He worked with the team. Regarding friendlies, he played half an hour and 45 minutes. I think he will show all his quality. I don’t want to comment on France’s decision. They rated Karim at the time and thought he would not be able to play the whole World Cup. He came back here with a lot of enthusiasm, very motivated. He knows that his first part of the season has not been good and he wants to show things in second part of the season.”

Messi’s place in history

“Hard to say, I don’t know if it’s the best ever. It’s not so fair to say that because every era has very good players. A ‘Messi is the best in history’ won’t come out of my mouth. I have enjoyed so many great players… I train for the Ballon d’Or every day and I have seen Cruyff and Maradona play…”

Rumors to coach Brazil

“If they are interested, they haven’t called me, but if they are, I appreciate it. My situation is clear: I am still here, I will never tell Madrid that this adventure is over.

Winter transfer window

“We don’t want to recruit, because we have a great team. We don’t know about the departures, because maybe some players who play less want to leave. Compared to December 2022, I think we are better. And although it’s hard, so why not improve on what we did last year?”

Endrick

“He is a fantastic player, a great talent. The club has reached an agreement with the family for 2024 and that is good news.”
