What are the results of Eduardo Camavinga’s first season in Madrid? Well, that’s pretty positive. Inevitably, the former Rennais man didn’t start, but he was still able to earn playing time, making 26 league appearances, including 13 starts, and some good appearances in the Champions League, notably against Manchester City. All in all, when he was on the pitch, the tricolor international seduced everyone and alongside Madrid, we are already rubbing our hands thinking about the future.
In its daily edition, the newspaper Mark takes stock of what awaits the Frenchman for his second season in Spain. The newspaper specifically explains that Ancelotti had a meeting with the player, and the Italian knows that this season, his case will have to be managed particularly well, he who is one of the Bernabéu’s favourites.
Ancelotti wants Camavinga to be patient
Above all, the Madrid technician does not want to rush. He believes that, although he is very talented and mature in the game, Camavinga is still a hope and that for now, his goal is still to scratch the playing time. Ancelotti has already let him know that he will not be a starter. And this while the main interested party wants playing time, especially for the World Cup. But in Madrid the competition is fierce. And that is why Ancelotti wanted to give him peace of mind, and let him know that he will play more than last year, and that during the season, depending on the events, he could claim a starting position.
For his part, Camavinga will also have to improve in some areas – we don’t know which ones – as the Italian tactician believes that he still has a lot of room for improvement and that he must learn from his more experienced teammates. Media say that internally at Madrid it is expected that he can take inspiration from Fede Valverde, who was more or less a substitute for two years before establishing himself as a starter during the last season, as a midfielder/right winger, even occasionally wearing the captain’s armband during this preseason. A good example for a Camavinga who hopes to establish himself as the head of the Merengue midfield in the near future.
