Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has spoken in support of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa has come up for criticisms since he shipped in three goals in the defeat against Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

But Ancelotti said: “How? How do you say? Puppet with a head? (Laughs). I didn’t know him.

“Well, Kepa has my complete confidence, he is a very good goalkeeper and he is doing excellent. The three Metropolitano goals were everyone’s fault.

“No, I don’t like to point out anyone, least of all him, who couldn’t do anything.”
