"I GIVE UP": Ancelotti's INCREDIBLE answer when asked about Mbappe
The Real Madrid boss was asked about the French striker even after the market is closed, and he could not resist it any more
It is still difficult to forget how Kylian Mbappé slammed the door on his move to Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are accustomed to get any player they want, but on that occasion the story did not end well for them. Paris Saint Germain made an unbelievable offer and the young French star decided to continue in Paris after several months of negotiation. However, with Mbappé's skill its hard to believe that Merengue club has forgotten about him, so even to this day Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelootti faces questions about him.
In the press conference prior to the match against RB Leipizg, for the second date of the Champions League group stage, the Italian manager was asked once again about a possible signing of Mbappé in the future and the los Blancos boss decided to be accurate with his answer: "I give with those questions. We are excited about the forwards we have, especially with the youngsters. Karim makes us very excited, but when a youngster comes in we are even more excited. What Vinicius and Rodrygo are doing... We aren't thinking of anyone else right now, there's no question. We're focused on this one".
To leave behind the harassing question about the Frenchman, Carlo Ancelotti focused on the work that the forwards of his squad have been doing. The first bit of prasing was for Eden Hazard; the Belgian had been highly questioned and seemed to be on the way out from Madrid, but his performances have been improving: "Hazard has fulfilled what has been required of him in these games. The fact is that Karim is unavailable and we have replaced him with Hazard and Rodrygo. My personal opinion is that Hazard done what was asked and the team too".
The coach also referred to the performance of Vinicius, who drives rival defenses crazy with his dribbles, a situation for which he receives many hard tackles on the pitch: "I see Vinicius as a good player, who shows his talent and quality. The rivals try to stop him showing his quality, but they do it with respect because there is a regulation that protects all footballers, not just Vinicius."
Lastly, Carlo Ancelotti did not forget Marco Asensio. The forward is low in the Italian's pecking order but he still has the opportunity to earn a place: "Asensio now cannot be considered a youngster or a veteran. He must endure this moment. The reaction to his anger has been good, he has trained well. There are two ways to react: train better or lower your arms. He has done well and has the opportunity to play this Wednesday".
In any case, with Florentino Pérez at the helm, we have to be cautious when it comes to transfers. The president of Real Madrid is extremely skilled in the matter, so we will have to wait until 2024, the date on which Kylian Mbappé's current contract ends and the moment when he could, without a doubt, end up dressed in white.
