“We reach the Derby in a very good moment for us. We earned several consecutive wins and we’re hoping that everything goes well for us in the game. Against Atletico it’d be good for us to play the same way we played in previous games, having control of the game and also playing with intensity in the duels,” he said.
Rodrygo is quietly establishing himself as a starter for Real Madrid and while his numbers haven’t improved as significantly as Vinicius’, the winger is feeling Ancelotti’s trust.
“I feel really well and I definitely appreciate the trust and the confidence he gives me. I try to help the team every time I’m on the pitch and Ancelotti wants me to help defensively. He knows that I can make an impact with the ball but at the same time I know I have to be there for my teammates defensively. On offense I have to keep improving, scoring more goals and delivering more assists as well,” he added.
Rodrygo concluded his brief interview by praising teammate Vinicius Junior.
“It’s a pleasure to play with him. We always enjoyed playing together since we played for Brazil’s youth teams. I love playing with him, we’re happy, excited and ready to help Real Madrid,” concluded the forward.
Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio spoke with Movistar+ ahead of Sunday’s Madrid Derby against Atletico de Madrid. Asensio not only talked about the game, but also on rumors that he might be considering leaving Santiago Bernabeu.
“It’s too soon to be talking about leaving Real Madrid. As I said, I want to be on the pitch, work hard and have minutes. From then on, we’ll see what happens,” said a cryptic Asensio when asked about his future.
The attacker is fully aware of the importance of Sunday’s Derby now that Real Madrid have built a solid lead in the table.
“This is a very important game for us. We have a lead but the season is very long. Still, we’re facing this game trying to win and increase our current lead. We are feeling well right now and we’re playing and defending well, improving after each and every game, so we have to keep going and keep improving,” he added.
