Carlo Ancelotti expects his side to keep pushing until the end.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti wants his side to fight for the La Liga title despite knowing the fact that Barcelona are way ahead of them.
The Los Blancos head has urged his side to fight until the end for the La Liga title. Barcelona are leading them on the table with 13 points.
Ancelotti’s side have dropped unnecessary points in the title race, including their last game against Villarreal.
Real Madrid’s boss expects his side to keep pushing until the end. He said the jersey demands that never say die attitude.
Speaking ahead of the clash with Cadiz this weekend, Ancelotti said (via Real Madrid’s website): “We’re in pretty good shape. It’s a difficult game because Cadiz are playing really well. They are in good form.
“They are an intense side, and it comes in the middle of the Champions League quarter-final tie. We’re eager to put in a good performance.”
“My players are motivated to prepare the right strategy for the game. We’re in a competition we must respect.
“We’re trailing, but we want to do the best we can. There are nine games to go. If we can’t finish top, we’ll fight to the end to at least secure second. The players know that, and this jersey demands that attitude.”
Meanwhile, Real Madrid kept hopes of a 15th Champions League title alive with a win over Chelsea earlier this week. They are also in the final of Copa del Rey.
