“There is no ego here” – Carlo Ancelotti reveals reason behind Real Madrid’s triumphant LaLiga season

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti recently revealed the true reason behind his team’s triumphant season in LaLiga, as they were crowned champions for a record 36th time in history.

Los Blancos finished with 95 points from 38 games, winning 29 of those. They also exacted revenge on their arch-rivals as they finished 10 points ahead of second-placed Barcelona, who had done the same to them last season.

Carlo Ancelotti reflects upon a successful season

Following their La Liga win, Carlo Ancelotti gave an exclusive interview with Times Sport, where he touched upon several topics. One of them was the reasons behind Real Madrid’s league win, to which the Italian had a simple, yet powerful response.

He said,

“We won the league this season because there is no ego here. Vinicius, no ego. Bellingham, no ego. Rodrygo, no ego. And the senior players are like that too. Toni Kroos, Dani Carvajal, Nacho, Luka Modric.

“I don’t know what happens in the future but there is no jealousy between the young ones now. Humility is important. You must have that.”

Los Blancos marched to the title due to all-round contributions from the team. Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior led the scoring charts with 19 and 15 goals, respectively. Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde led the assists charts with eight and seven. Custodian Andriy Lunin also contributed with 10 clean sheets as team effort to Real a long way.

Champions League Final Preview

Real Madrid’s season is far from done, with the prestigious UEFA Champions League Final yet to happen. The showpiece match will take place at the Wembley Stadium in London on June 1.

Los Blancos will take on Borussia Dortmund in that match. The former qualified for the knockouts with a perfect record in Group C to earn 18 points. They defeated RB Leipzig in the round of 16, Manchester City in the quarter-finals and Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals to advance to the final.

Dortmund, on the other hand, fought hard to top Group F and topped it ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, and Newcastle, finishing with 11 points. They defeated PSV Eindhoven in the round of 16, Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals and PSG in the semi-finals to advance.

These two sides have played each other several times in the last decade. Real Madrid narrowly edge the recent head-to-head as they have won two games compared to Borussia Dortmund’s one, with two draws.
