Real Madrid are reportedly unhappy with Aurélien Tchouaméni’s attitude off the pitch, report Relevo. The senior players in the squad have already given him a warning and even the staff at Valdebebas have been surprised by the attitude he has had since returning from the World Cup.
The France international went to the United States to watch an NBA game while Madrid were playing for a place in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey against Villarreal. Since Tchouaméni’s return from the World Cup, he has been spotted at a few other social events, despite the fact that he was recovering from injury. Carlo Ancelotti, aware of all this, took advantage of a press conference to give him a public slap on the wrist for the trip to watch basketball. “He has made a mistake,” said the Italian.
Tchouaméni suffered the injury prior to the Spanish Super Cup and returned for the defeat to Mallorca on Sunday. He may be going through a tough spell after a strong start to life with Los Blancos, who play Al Ahly in the FIFA Club World Cup on Wednesday night, but time is on his side to turn things around.
