Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has sent a response to Rodrygo.
The Brazilian recently stated that he doesn’t like his current role as a centre forward.
Ancelotti has rather said that he will always put the good of the team above individual needs.
The Italian coach also added that Rodrygo has only played as a true centre-forward on one occasion this season.
“It is important to know where the player wants to play, I have never put anyone in a position that they do not like, but sometimes due to the demands of the team, it’s necessary for someone to sacrifice themselves. Like [Aurelien] Tchouameni, Camavinga, Rodrygo himself too,” Ancelotti told reporters.
“I think Rodrygo is a complete forward, he can play as a centre-forward. This season he has played one game as a centre-forward, against Napoli.
“My idea first is the demands of the team, and then the demands of the individual. But for example, if I put Camavinga at left-back, I inform him first, I say to them they can do it . No-one has told me that he can’t play in a position. No-one.
“Speaking of Sergio Ramos, I once put Ramos as a pivot, he didn’t like it, but they were the team’s demands, he did it. And everyone is doing so. This is a very well defined in a word, and that is altruism.”
