“Against Valladolid, I will give priority to those who have trained here,” said the coach.

Carlo Ancelotti appeared in the Real Madrid City press room on the eve of the La Liga Round 15 game against Valladolid (Friday, 9:30 p.m.). The coach analyzed the match that will be played at the José Zorrilla stadium: “We arrive well, with a great desire to return. The team feels good, has trained well. We have recovered Benzema, who is a very important for us. Those who came back today have made an individual plan and are available. I will give priority to those who trained here.”

“Benzema came back on December 10. For his return he was pretty good and started working with the team. In the first game he played 30 minutes, and in the second 45. He had a good first game season. He is ready and has shown it in recent days”.

The schedule requirement
“Assessing what is going to happen is rather complicated. The calendar demands a lot because we have the Spanish Super Cup, the Club World Cup in February… Until March there are a lot of matches. What we are going to do , this is an individual evaluation of each player. It is also true that there are players who have not rested much because they played until December 18 and needed to recover. We will evaluate all this in the next few days. We play every three days and there is no downtime, but they all have to rest.”
