In an interview with Cadena Cope about being ‘forced’ to play as a centre-forward at Real Madrid this season, Rodrygo expressed his feelings.

The Brazilian said that Carlo Ancelotti is aware of where he wants to play, but that he accepted it as a sign of the respect he has for the Italian.

“The coach is aware that the position as a central striker is not my favorite, but I have accepted the role for the good of the team and out of respect for him, as I believe in his strategies. He is in the same year as me and there is no longer any disagreement about this,” said Rodrygo.

“It is an opportunity and a privilege for me to play there, but I feel that my characteristics do not correspond to the requirements of the position. I don’t like to play being marked by the goalkeeper, I want to be more active in the game and it is not easy for a ‘9’ to touch the ball often. Both me and Vini are adapting to this situation”.

Rodrygo, who does not seem to favor the number 9 position, has been thrust into the role as a result of Carlo Ancelotti’s new scheme.

He put in an excellent performance in Real Madrid’s recent win over Valencia, returning to a more familiar position where he scored two goals and assisted two more, helping the team secure a 5-0 victory. .
