The former of Monaco sees him and lifts the leather with the perfect power so that it falls to the grass just when Rodrygo is ahead of Philip. 0-1 for him real Madrid.
That goal, fruit of the connection between the young squad talent madridista, is the definition of that modern football on which he has insisted so many times Carlo Ancelotti. Valverde (24 years old) and Rodrygo (21) are very special players, they are what the modern footballer has to be. They have physique, quality and stand out in several positions, the Italian summed up on Sunday. Some virtues that also serve to Tchouamni (22), Camavinga (19), Vinicius (22) or Military (24).
