Guti, former Real Madrid attacking midfielder, did not understand Carlo Ancelotti’s decisions in the rout against Barcelona (0-4). He didn’t realize, for example, how it was possible that Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale or Isco stayed on the bench.
“I’m Ancelotti, I look at the bench and I have Hazard, Jovic, Bale and Isco and none of them come in? What is happening? I’m completely lost. I watched the game against Barcelona and saw the Real Madrid bench and the first change was Mariano. How is it possible? Were Bale and Hazard not there? Did Mariano come in who hadn’t played yet this year? Real Madrid can’t just use 12 or 13 players. A big team that wants to fight in the Champions League, the league and the Copa del Rey cannot just use these players. What is happening? Anyone who doesn’t want to play is not part of Real Madrid. It’s easy to see, but you have to make it public and say it. Either the club or Carlo Ancelotti have to tell the players to speak at a press conference and say they don’t want to play for Real Madrid. If they are paid by Real Madrid, how can they not play?” Guti said, speaking to El Chiringuito.
