Ancelotti insists on the 4-4-2 formation, relies heavily on one player – not Vinicius

Carlo Ancelotti has no intention of changing the 4-4-2 formation he currently plays at Real Madrid, writes Marca.

The Italian coach already hinted that he will work with his team to improve the system he has already started to implement.

“We will play with the same desire and the same illusion to be able to compete.”

“We have to improve and work,” Carletto said after the game in San Mames.


It is said that the key player in Ancelotti’s new system is Jude Bellingham and not Vinicius Jr.

Ancelotti sees Bellingham as a midfield machine who can continue to contribute a lot of goals for the team.

The Englishman certainly proved that he is ready for the new task, where he scored an excellent goal against Athletic Bilbao, but it remains to be seen how far he can go.


As previously reported, Real Madrid will not sign another player this summer following the arrival of goalkeeper Kepa Arizabalaga.
