Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has reiterated he is happy with the depth of his Madrid squad despite calls for a backup striker to be signed for Karim Benzema.

The calls have been more resounding after the club sold Luka Jovic and Borja Mayoral this summer without a replacement forward being signed. 

During preseason, Ancelotti opted to use Eden Hazard as an unconventional centre-forward, and seems unfazed by the situation.

Speaking ahead of their European Super Cup final with Eintracht Frankfurt via Sport, the Italian explained:

“We have many forwards, a good list with Benzema, Mariano, Asensio, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Asensio… When you miss the best forward in the world, it affects the team.

“Alternatives we have, but replacing Benzema is impossible, there is not one player in the world that can substitute him. If he is constipated, we will adapt.”
