Carlo Ancelotti has claimed that his Real Madrid side looked tired during their 2-0 win over Cordoba.
Goals from Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo gave Los Blancos their first win of the new season.
But the Coach has admitted that his men were struggling after the Supercopa loss to Atletico Madrid on Friday.
“We were tired,” he told reporters. “We only played three days ago, and it’s not easy to go straight back into action after that amount of rest.
“Having said that though, I think we controlled the game.
“We’re not at our best yet. We need to quicken the game up.
“But I’m sure that will come with time.”
