Last night was a special one for the Argentina national team and every Argentine as they beat France 4-2 on penalties to win the FIFA World Cup 2022.

The trophy will be returning to Buenos Aires 36 years after Diego Maradona led La Albiceleste to the World Cup triumph in 1986. It is certainly a momentous occasion and fans, players, pundits deserve to be ecstatic following the achievement.

However, a certain Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero seemed to take the celebrations a bit too far when he made a crass remark towards Real Madrid and France youngster Eduardo Camavinga following Argentina’s triumph.

Aguero, who was forced into early retirement from football earlier this year due to a heart condition, has a close bond with the national team squad and was at the heart of the celebrations after the final in Qatar.

However, during those moments, when he was streaming live on Instagram, Aguero referred to Camavinga crassly as cara de pinga’, which, in English translates to ‘d***face’ (h/t MARCA).

Regarded as one of the greatest strikers of the modern era, such a comment was absolutely classless from Aguero, taking aim at a young player who is just 20 years of age.

The Real Madrid youngster did not start for France in the final against Argentina, but came on in the second half with the scoreline at 2-0 and had an influence on the proceedings as Les Bleus mounted a comeback and made it 2-2.

While the night may have ended on a disappointing note for him and France, the 20-year-old will learn from the experience and come back strongly.

As for Aguero, while he is within his right to celebrate the success of his close friend Lionel Messi and his nation, it is unfortunate to see him act in this manner and make unnecessary, derogatory remarks towards opposition players.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
