Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid head coach, praised Fabio Coentrao despite being sent off late in the 2-0 Copa del Rey victory over Osasuna, and pay per head services also saw a fine performance by the player despite his dismissal.
Coentrao was shown his second yellow card for a challenge in the 85th minute on Osasuna’s Oier Sanjurjo with the win already sealed through goals by Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel di Maria that impressed fans and pay per head services alike.
Pay per head services know that during the January transfer window, the Portuguese full-back was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, but the coach stressed the importance of the talented 25-year-old, who he feels was unfortunate to be sent off.
“I think he was unlucky being sent off but he completed a good game in terms of defensive and offensive aspects,” Ancelotti said.
“I think he is very focussed on his job – he is really important for us.
“He didn’t make mistakes after a long time not playing and we have to appreciate his performance tonight.”
Price per head services saw that after copping a hand to the face, Arsenal transfer target Alvaro Morata left the field late in the match, but Ancelotti was confident that the injury was not a serious one.
“He has received a hit in his eye and I don’t think it’s a serious injury,” Real’s boss said.
“He was not comfortable because his eye is swelled up but nothing more.”
Ancelotti and pay per head services were pleased with the team’s performance despite their bad luck toward the end of the match, and the coach is confident that they are focused as the business end of the season nears.
“We did control the game (against Osasuna) from the beginning,” Ancelotti said.
“We scored early and it is true that it was not so difficult because we put in a great defensive effort.
“I think it is becoming the most difficult time of the season because every single game is really important now.
“We don’t play amazing football always but we have plenty of games at this moment and it’s not so easy to play all the time at a high level.
