If we analyze it from a strictly quantitative point of view, Camavinga’s injury is a drama for Real Madrid. Ancelotti cannot count on five of his eight central defenders at the moment: neither Tchouamni, nor Guler, nor Ceballos, nor Bellingham, nor Camavinga. On the other hand, if we carry out the analysis from a more qualitative perspective, Eduardo’s absence is not a drama. It’s much worse.
Let’s hope that the MRI they are going to do today in Valdebebas excludes that in addition to that sprain in the right knee, the external lateral ligament is seriously affected, because otherwise, instead of eight weeks, the sick leave period would last more months. And that would mean a loss of capital for white people, like those from Courtois and Militão. Because although Camavinga does not (yet) have the hierarchy of the Belgian goalkeeper or the Brazilian defender,
His contribution to the team’s play is enormous, no matter how you look at it. Physically, in terms of football, energetically and even emotionally, ’12’ gives a lot to his teammates. Where others cannot reach, Camavinga always arrives.
It appears as if nothing had happened and the same thing takes the ball away from you as if it were a roulette wheel and annihilates two opponents.
It’s the Roadrunner with braids and a smile.
His performance on the field is so great and so insistent (even more so than Valverde) that it compensates for those confidences in defensive areas that sometimes penalize him.
He creates, destroys, corrects, intimidates, pressures, bends… At just 21 years old, he is a prodigy of physical and technical conditions who carries the ball with the elegance of a prince and is so overflowing with resources and energy that it doesn’t matter if he makes him play as a left-back or places him as a midfielder,
where he came from giving two recitals against Braga and Valencia.
The only place you shouldn’t put it is on the bench.
For some reason he is one of Bernabu’s favorite children, who has good taste and quickly realized that
Me and Bellingham are two football players called to dominate their generation
So now it’s Ancelotti’s turn to invent, as he already did successfully with the Bellingham location. He has more classic options, such as playing Kroos or even Modric as a midfielder.
(we’ll see if he resorts to this again and again),
The proof of the most innovative alternatives, such as Fede Valverde or David Alaba
. I would try the Austrian, because he knows the job, he knows the position and because it would help Nacho to occupy the center of defense. That he deserves more.
