He Real Madrid leaves Riyadh with its 13th Spanish Super Cup, after beating Barça 4-1 in a match in which the whites physically surpassed a non-existent Barça defense and tactically overcame the scoreboard of a Xavi who came to the game appealing to “Cruyffism” and “Barça DNA”. Ancelotti, for his part, denied that his team was a favorite and remained calm.

Not even seven minutes had passed when the method ‘antiVinicius‘ or, in other words, focusing Araujo’s work on the left wing of Madrid did not bear fruit, because ‘Vini’ He left Riyadh with a hat trick‘ after causing the second yellow card to the Uruguayan, who was sent off in the 71st minute. The recently renewed Carlo Ancelotti returns home having equalized the 11 titles from Zinedine Zidane with Real Madrid, whom he has also surpassed in games (one more against the Frenchman), with the white team.

It was precisely Zidane who, according to Ancelotti himself, “it helped him understand Spanish football”. And if the ninth Champions League came from Zidane’s boots, with the Frenchman being assistant coach, ‘La Décima’ arrived. Miguel Munoz He is now the only one who surpasses Carletto, although the Italian has every chance to catch up with the legendary coach of Real Madrid, after its renewal until 2026.

Ancelotti, who learned from the three o’clock man Champions, is the head of a bench that has been converted without leaving a trace. Because the Italian knows well that in the Spanish capital there are no transition years. And little by little, with the help of the sports management, he has been able to introduce Valverde, Tchouaméni and Camavinga in the starting eleven, leaving behind one of the best midfield centers in the world, formed by Kroos, Modric and Casemiro, without hardly being noticed. Not to mention the white attack, which without Benzema, continues to be the second highest scorer in Spain and the one that concedes the fewest goals without Alaba or Militao.

And the antecedents say that Ancelotti He is one of those who work in silence, one of those coaches who fill their record without much ecstasy, overflowing with serenity. One of those who are unfazed by the comeback in the tenth Champions League final in the last minute or by Rodrygo’s two goals that qualified his team for the Champions League final in 2022 in stoppage time. He just breathes, eats gum and, at most, raises his eyebrow. Without ever forgetting to praise the opponent, even if he scored four goals or broke their defense from the first minute, there is always room for improvement in this Madrid. “Looking at how the score was, it was very difficult for us to recover the ball, we should have improved a little more“, said the Italian after beating Barça and winning the title. Acknowledging the work of advanced, it has taken him two or three games, but he has returned to his best level.

Florentino is the president with the most titles in the history of Real Madrid

There are many occasions in which Florentino Perez He has praised the figure of Santiago Bernabéu, especially when he has been asked about the possibility of renaming the stadium with his name, something that the white president ruled out. This final not only enlarges the legend of Carlo Ancelotti, but also that of Florentino Pérez, who wins his 33rd title with Real Madrid and surpasses Bernabéu (32).

The president of the six Champions Leagues, the one who “has given everything” to Ancelotti, the one who brought him back when everyone was asking for Raúl and Xavi Alonso, the one who jokes about Vinicius’ goals: “I told him to score more if Valverde should run more.” After clarifying that “This is not the time to talk about Mbappé“The fans are not thinking about that, after seeing their team score nine goals in this Spanish Super Cup.”

Like Ancelotti, of whom he has said that “He is a coach who fits the team’s style very well both because of his way of understanding football and his behavior.“, Florentino spoke after the game without much effusiveness and appealing to the promising future of Real Madrid. And thus the end to the Spain Supercupwith a Barça that was looking for the turning point that this Spanish Super Cup gave them last year to finish raising LaLiga, and with a Madrid that does not need it, since it already comes from a great dynamic. Because, according to what the president with the most titles at the club says, every year “they work to continue winning”
