Ancelotti acknowledges Modric's frustration amid contract uncertainty

Posted : 26 February 2024

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti acknowledged the potential frustration of midfielder Luka Modric for spending much of the season on the bench and described the veteran's contract situation as "complicated."


Despite being out of contract this summer, the 38-year-old made a significant impact coming off the bench, scoring a remarkable goal in Real Madrid's 1-0 LaLiga victory over Sevilla. Ancelotti praised Modric's performance, emphasizing the challenge of leaving such a dedicated player on the sidelines due to tough competition in the squad.


The Italian manager highlighted Modric's exemplary work ethic and training commitment, making him a role model for the entire team. Ancelotti admitted the difficulty of benching Modric, not only for his goal-scoring contributions but also for his overall professionalism.


When addressing Modric's contract situation, Ancelotti acknowledged its complexity and the challenges associated with managing such matters. Drawing from his own experience as a player, he empathized with the potential disappointment Modric might feel about not playing regularly, emphasizing that the Croatian midfielder still demonstrates vitality and skills that defy the perception of being at the twilight of his career.


As Real Madrid continues their pursuit of the LaLiga title, Ancelotti faces the intricate task of managing a squad with talented players competing for playing time. Real Madrid, currently leading the league, will face Valencia in their upcoming league fixture, with Ancelotti navigating the delicate balance of squad rotation and player satisfaction.
