Tchouaméni, it’s not okay


By: Manu Tournoux

Aurélien Tchouaméni is not happy and he has made it known. Following the match won by Real Madrid at Alavès (0-1) during which he played in central defense, the Frenchman complained in his own way.

Thursday evening in Alavès, Aurélien Tchouaméni was not on the pitch at kick-off. Substitute, the Real Madrid midfielder, however, entered the game in the fifty-fifth minute, following the expulsion of Nacho. But it was not in his favorite position that the Frenchman played during this match won at the last minute by the Merengue (0-1, 18th day of La Liga). He was thus positioned in central defense by Carlo Ancelotti. And very clearly, he didn’t like it at all.

Shortly after the end of the match, Aurélien Tchouaméni logged on to his social networks to say, in his own way, what he thought of his coach’s choice to have him play alongside Antonio Rüdiger. The French international reposted a message that he himself had posted online on October 7 after a game where he had already helped out in central defense. “ Don’t get used to it bro, it’s only for one match! “, he wrote. This time, he republished his tweet, with the only comment, an eloquent “ “.

And maybe it’s not over

Even before Aurélien Tchouaméni posted this message, Carlo Ancelotti had commented on his decision to play his midfielder a step lower. For the transalpine technician, the Frenchman’s probable dissatisfaction was not a surprise. “ He will get angry if he plays there but he is a spectacular central defender. » In the coming weeks, it could well be that Tchouaméni will be forced to put a little water in his wine and take his troubles patiently since the injuries of Eder Militao and David Alaba, associated with the upcoming suspension of Nacho , could well push his coach to reposition him behind. Perhaps waiting for a winter recruit.
