Players across the globe dream of a move to Real Madrid all their lives, but only a handful see it fulfilled. Of them, most succumb to the pressure of playing for such a prestigious club.
Given the weight of expectation and the pressure to play well from day one, it is quite rare for a new player to fit in seamlessly to Los Blancos’ system. That is what makes Aurelien Tchouameni’s adaptation at Real Madrid beyond impressive.
According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, the new midfield signing has made a great impact in Real Madrid’s dressing room. The players and management are said to be extremely pleased with him.
Tchouameni has quickly become one of Ancelotti’s most important players this campaign, and the manager is said to constantly sing his praises to the board.
This speaks a lot about the youngster’s mentality and work ethic. However, one of the biggest factors contributing to his success is undoubtedly his consistent performance.
Tchouameni was expected to serve as a deputy to Casemiro in his first season at the club. However, the world turned upside down for him when the Brazilian decided to leave the club for Manchester United.
Having been thrown into the deep end, the youngster did not take long to learn his ways. He delivered world-class displays against Celta Vigo, Espanyol and Real Betis and instantly proved his worth to Ancelotti.
In four starts this season, he has produced over 14 defensive actions per game. Whilst being defensively sound, he has also shown the skillset of finding incisive passes and linking up in the attack.
The 22-year-old is expected to start as the defensive midfielder for Los Blancos against RB Leipzig midweek.
Real Madrid want to bring radical changes in Spanish refereeing system – report
Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.
The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid.
Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit.
Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.
Real Madrid not hiding their discontent
The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.
Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit.
For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.
Real Madrid are suspicious
Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition.
For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.
As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.
Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
