Carlo Ancelotti: “I can’t criticise a team that has done very well.”

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the media after his side’s 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig.

Assessment of the game

“We conceded a goal from two set-pieces. The key to the game was the opening two goals, which set it up for them,” said Ancelotti in quotes transcribed by AS.

Are you angry about the defeat?

“I’m not angry. It’s a defeat, it’s annoying, but it doesn’t do much harm. Sooner or later it had to happen. Let’s move on, we can’t look back. I can’t criticise a team that has done very well.”

A wake-up call

“You learn from defeats, we had more than 10 wins in a row. We are very strong at set pieces, but we weren’t tonight.”

Switching between Nacho and Rüdiger

“We changed the pressing a bit and Nacho is more used to pressing than Antonio.”

Los Blancos will look to get back to winning ways against Girona in La Liga on Sunday.
