Ancelotti praises ‘more confident’ Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that Real Madrid are ‘more solid, more confident’ after their 3-0 win over Getafe.

Goals from Jese, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric gave Los Blancos all three points at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

And the Italian Coach has insisted that his men are growing in confidence ahead going into the last part of the season.

“Working hard for each other in defence is very important,” he told a Press conference.

“At the start of the season, we had a few problems but now we’re more solid, more confident and more natural in our play.

“The team are strong mentally and physically and we have to carry on like this because the really important part of the season is starting now.

“It started well with some chances for us. Then Getafe pressured more and we had some difficulties. In dead ball situations, we did well because they are dangerous there.”

The tactician also had words of praise for Jese and Gareth Bale.

“I’m not surprised because he’s playing really well and scoring. It’s no surprise. We’ve spoken a lot about him and I hope he carries on like this.

“Bale didn’t score but he had a good chance. I don’t ask forwards to score but to help the team. He did well like the rest of the team.”
