Former Atletico Madrid manager Jorge D’Alessandro has praised Eduardo Camavinga as the best player in Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid squad.

During a conversation with Josep Pedrerol, D’Alessandro did not even mention Vinicius Jr or Jude Bellingham and emphasised that Camavinga is a standout player and, in his view, the best in the team from a footballing perspective.

He expressed his admiration for Camavinga, highlighting his exceptional control of the game’s tempo, pace, speed, and consistency. According to D’Alessandro, these qualities make the young French midfielder the best player in Real Madrid’s lineup.

“We have the best player in the team, Camavinga. He is a player who is out of his depth, football-wise he is the best player in the team,” said the Argentine manager as quoted by Defensa Central.

“In terms of tempo, pace, speed and continuity in the game, Camavinga is the best,” he added.

In addition to this praise, Real Madrid recently announced the signing of Kylian Mbappe for the next five seasons. 

This major signing has heightened the excitement among Real Madrid fans, who are eagerly anticipating the upcoming season under Ancelotti’s management, mostly because everyone wants to know how the Italian would line his team up.

It is to be noted that the season ended on a high note for Real Madrid and the fans are thrilled about the future prospects of their team. 

Alongside the arrival of Mbappe, Real Madrid have also secured the services of promising young talent Endrick. 

Furthermore, the club plans to bring back Rafa Marin, who has just completed a loan spell at Alaves mostly because Nacho is expected to leave the team.

With these exciting additions, Real Madrid fans have much to look forward to. The summer has just begun, and the squad is already shaping up to be strong and competitive for the next season.

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.
