Carlo Ancelotti’s press conference prior to the match against Mallorca was full of positivism and attempts to quell the logical euphoria after the match against PSG: “We’ve won and we’re still in the Champions League. Tomorrow is another game, another competition. We are used to looking ahead.” He also joked about a report that Thibaut Courtois was among the ten best goalkeepers in the world: “It’s nonsense, they should break the journalist or coach card if he is not among the top ten.”

However, one of the most outstanding moments was his reflection on Eduardo Camavinga, which he took the opportunity to point out that the replacement of Casemiro, Kroos and Modric is ready. “Camavinga’s position is very clear. For us and for him. Camavinga is the present and also the future of the club. The day that Modric, Casemiro, Kroos are older, it could be in 10 or 15 years, we have players like Camavinga, Valverde or Antonio Blanco, who is at Castilla, as a replacement for these legends”.
