Federico Valverde is having the best moment in his career. The Uruguayan midfielder has grown a lot among “professors” such as Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. The latter described him as one of the three best players in the world after the fantastic goal and very good performance in El Clasico against Barcelona.
On Wednesday evening came the next goal, the 24-year-old Uruguayan scored the first goal in Real’s 0-3 success against Elches in the transfer, a challenge where the leaders of La Liga had three goals canceled by VAR.
” I told Valverde that if he doesn’t score at least 10 goals this season, I will tear up my coaching license and retire ,” Ancelotti declared in one of his usual jokes on September 15.
The retreat is far away, the Latin player cannot retire his technician and so Elches found the sixth goal of the season (5 in La Liga and 1 in the Champions League). And we’re still in October… Valverde spoke to DAZN after the match, where he returned to Ancelotti’s motivational quote.
” Ancelotti said he will leave football if I don’t score at least 10 goals. I have to do more, I don’t want to be the cause of his withdrawal “, declared the player of the national team of Uruguay, smiling.
The atmosphere at Real is great. Ancelotti’s men are unbeaten in the new season in all competitions as they lead the Spanish league with 28 points from ten weeks.
