“We’re not going to kill him…” Ancelotti reassures about the infernal rhythm of Benzema’s matches

After Real Madrid’s victory against Betis (2-1) this Saturday during the 4th day of La Liga, the coach of the Merengue Carlo Ancelotti wanted to reassure the fans of Karim Benzema. Silent against the Andalusians, the Madrid captain still played the entire match.

No respite for Karim Benzema . The captain of Real Madrid is more than ever the leader of the European champions. And Carlo Ancelotti’s right-hand man. Despite his 34 years, the French striker once again played the entire La Liga match against Betis Sevilla (2-1, goals from Vinicius and Rodrygo) on Saturday at the Bernabeu.

This had already been the case during the first three meetings. Doesn’t Carlo Ancelotti fear injury or grilling his striker as Real start their Champions League campaign on Tuesday at Celtic Glasgow?

“I feel very good physically”

The subject does not concern the Italian technician more than that. 

“We are not going to kill him, rest assured, warned the Real coach. We play every three days from today (Saturday), so it is possible that he needs to rest on a game once in a while. But so far he has played every week, and I can feel that physically very well. He was not very fine in his last moves today, but it was not for a physical reason.” 

Real Madrid leads the Spanish league with three points ahead of their opponent of the day.
