Real Madrid head coach, Carlo Ancelotti says his side’s lack of determination contributed to their loss to Rayo Vallecano on Monday night.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Rayo came back from behind after initially taking the lead to secure a huge victory against the reigning La Liga champions and their Madrid rivals, much to the displeasure of Ancelotti. The veteran manager wasn’t afraid to be critical of his side post-match. It was Madrid’s first La Liga loss of the season.
Speaking to the press after the defeat, Ancelotti said: “We lacked determination of the rival, lost individual duels, could not get our play going.”
He added: “We have played too many games, same as most teams, we’re not as fresh as we were, we lacked legs today.”
With Barcelona still to play Osasuna this week, Real could find themselves five points adrift in La Liga by the end of Tuesday night.
