Ancelotti shows his bitter side to Richarlison

Mon 01 March 2021 | 9:28

The Italian manager revealed that would love to lead the attacking line permanently, but that the Brazilian should not get his hopes up.

“He likes to play centre-forward, honestly,"

Ancelotti

told reporters in his pre-match conference.

"But for the fact that he is young, he plays where I tell him to play!

“I think he cannot play centre-forward because he is really good at attacking the line and to play centre-forward, most of the time you have your shoulder at the goal.

“I think for him, better is centre-left. He has more difficulty to find solutions as a winger but centre-left, for me, is the best position.”

With

Richarlison

starting on the left and

James Rodriguez

on the right,

Dominic Calvert-Levin

has been

Ancelotti’s

first-choice number 9 this season. However, an injury to the English forward has allowed

Richarlison

to move inside and impress.

“If he asks to play centre-forward, and Dominic asks me to play left-winger then, no problem!"

he added.

“Maybe when he is older, he is going to ask to play centre-forward but, until now, he didn't ask.

"But I think we have to be able to play with them together because they are really strong.”
