Ancelotti: As Always The Casillas Whistles Turned To Applause

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has discussed the fans’ reaction to his team before their 2-0 win over Deportivo last night.

Madrid Bounce Back

Ancelotti said that it is normal for Real Madrid to be whistled, but remarked that whistles soon turned to applause, as was demonstrated with goalkeeper and captain, Iker Casillas.

"It’s normal for me or the team to be whistled. It’s frustrating for everyone to lose a derby 4-0,” he told AS.

“We all understood the need to win and the importance of the support. We need to say thank you to the fans. It’s hard to support the team when things go badly. The team are grateful for it.”

“Casillas whistled? As always, the whistles were at the start and then they stopped and there was applause for the game he had.”

The Italian went on to discuss Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance, before concluding that he thought his forward line performed well, tactically.

“The technical analysis is positive. He (Ronaldo) didn’t score but he was dangerous. A shot off the bar, an assist, he could have scored... he didn’t miss passes. It was good,” he continued.

“The forward line did well. They worked hard. We defended with two lines of four. Bale and Isco worked hard and well. We’ve been aiming to play like this for the past six months.”

Real Madrid will now begin preparations for their Champions League Round of 16 encounter with Schalke on Tuesday.
