Ancelotti: Barcelona injuries? I'm not interested

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that he is only focused on his team ahead of the Clásico match against Barcelona, in response to a question about the expected formation of the Catalan club.

In the past few days, Barca lost a number of players to injury, but in the last training session on Friday, 4 of them returned, while the newspapers talk about the readiness of Rafinha and Lewandowski to participate in the main way.

But Ancelotti, when asked at the press conference about it, said only: "Barcelona injury? I don't know, all I care about at the moment is that Bellingham is ready to play."

"I will now think about our top 11 players and who will try to perform at their best tomorrow."

Luka Modric is not involved in the main part this season, raising the idea of his possible departure in the winter, and Ancelotti replied on how he handles the situation: "Every professional player does not ask about the reasons for not participating."

As for who will feature in the left front from Ferland Mendy or Eduardo Camavinga: "Mendy has an advantage because he did not play against Sporting Braga."

Asked about Florentino Perez not travelling to Barcelona, he said: "Everything the president does and decides is in the interest of the club."

It should be noted that Florentino Perez changed the decision to go to Barcelona and attend the match from the stadium in objection to the description of one of the Catalan club officials to Vinicius Junior as a "clown" and despite the official apology from the Barca management after that.
