After a month and a half of absence, Aurélien Tchouaméni has returned to Real Madrid and will start the year again playing central defender next week. Carlo Ancelotti decided this while waiting for a possible recruit.

Tchouameninga “. Carlo Ancelotti got a little confused during his last press conference at Real Madrid between the two French internationals, but it is Aurélien Tchouaméni that the Italian technician now intends to use as a central defender. The Merengues have in fact lost David Alaba for the rest of the season, while Eder Militao will not return until next spring. They are looking for a central defender, but no recruits will be present at Sunday’s training.

In the meantime, Tchouaméni, who returns after an absence of a month and a half, entered the central hinge alongside Antonio Rüdiger after the exclusion of Nacho against Alavés (0-1 victory), on December 21. The Spanish international will obviously be suspended for the La Liga leader’s return match against Mallorca next Wednesday at the Bernabéu. This is the central defense now announced by the Iberian media for this meeting.

The French international trained at Girondins de Bordeaux does not seem to enjoy playing behind. He made it known. Last October, Tchouaméni had already been used alongside Rüdiger and, on X, he told the German not to get too used to this association. He republished this publication X after the meeting in Alavés, adding a scathing “ “. However, the Italian coach was categorical: the defensive midfielder made a “ excellent central defender “.
