Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti insists the game against Levante this afternoon is the most important fixture right now and his players aren’t thinking about anything else.
Los Blancos begin a huge week with a trip to Cuitat de Valencia before taking on Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday and end it by hosting Barcelona in the first Clasico fixture of the season next Saturday night.
Speaking to journalists ahead of the game against Levante, Ancelotti said the team is fully focussed on the game and nothing else matters for now.
“We are preparing for the games we have ahead in the next few days by focusing on tomorrow’s match. That is the most important game, after that we will have time to prepare for the others. We don’t have any problems. We are used to playing a lot of games in short space of time,” he stated.
The boss insists the defensive problems at the start of the campaign have been sorted out for now, and that conceding a lot of goals was as a result of a lack of full match fitness.
“I’ve already said that we’ve been made to pay for lapses of concentration in certain stages of games and because of a lack of fitness, as we didn’t have enough time to train properly during the pre-season. We have addressed those problems and have to keep up the consistency. We are on the right track now,” he commented.
