Real Madrid coach Ancelotti: Bale not injured – he doesn’t ‘feel right’

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti admits Gareth Bale won’t play against Copa del Rey opponents Alcoyano.

Bale doesn’t have a specific injury and the coach was asked what is wrong with the Welshman.

“Bale doesn’t feel right, but he isn’t injured,” Ancelotti said.

“He is committed because he has six months left on his contract.

“But, he doesn’t feel good or comfortable. If he is scared about suffering a problem then we have to evaluate this.

“Not releasing injury updates is a general thing, something to respect each individual’s privacy.

“We hope to have him back for the Valencia game this weekend, or for the Supercopa de Espana in Saudi Arabia.”

Moving on to talk about the Copa del Rey opponents, who knocked Real Madrid out at this same stage last season, Ancelotti insisted he and his players will take this game seriously.

“We will take this game very seriously,” the coach told the assembled media.

“It is a one-off game on the road and you can be eliminated with one bad game.

“This is an important competition and our objective is to win this cup.

“We’ll need quality. Ours is theoretically superior to that of our opponents, but we’ll also need concentration, to win aerial duels and to be good at set pieces.

“I want to be clear when I say I’ll put out the best team possible, apart from in goal where I’ll give minutes to Andriy Lunin, who deserves it.”
