Eduardo Camavinga (21 years) It was born, among other things, to make the Santiago Bernabéu fall in love with it. Against Valencia, In a new demonstration of physical and technical exuberance, he looked like an all-rounderbacked by an always reliable Toni Kroos with whom he enjoys playing more than with anyone else in the squad. He hallucinates with him in training and has fun in the games.
The change of position has suited him well, motivated by the untimely injury to Tchouameni. It was not easy to match the level of his compatriot, key to the good start of the white season, but he is achieving it. With the slight change in the defensive system and in a dominant Madrid with and without the ball, the former Rennes player brings out the best version of himself.
Against the whole That he did everything. Even lifting the Bernabéu with a pure power run in the second half. They could only stop him with a foul. In data, he was the third player in the game who intervened with the ball the most (77 times), only behind Kroos (97) and Alaba (78). In steals, he was only surpassed by a successful Mendy: 9 to 7 for the side. In what he won, unfortunately for him, he was in yellow. The referees still have an easy trigger with him and He saw the third card in the last four LaLiga games.
Waiting for the return of Aurelien Tchouameni, Camavinga will be able to enjoy several more matches in his preferred position, in the engine room. He feels tied up on the side, with less of a presence in the team than he would like. Therefore, he took this opportunity as the only one to show that, no matter how well he performs as a winger, his place is in the middle.
Ancelotti knows it. “Camavinga’s ideal position is as a pivot”, he said at a press conference a few days ago. And it’s not just the Italian who thinks so. This is a belief that can be considered general in Valdebebas and that they even see their own companions, although in his case, as long as he is on the field, everything is fine. The veterans, Modric or Kroos, talk a lot with him, while has found in the Brazilians and the rest of the young people, Bellingham included, a fundamental support in the locker room. With English she has made very good friends. They have a similar humor and share their taste in fashion.
And the one who was convinced long ago of Camavinga’s ability is Florentino Perez. “You are the best,” he often tells her when he visits the first team training sessions or the locker room after the game. Thus, decided to anticipate a renewal with which to show affection and importance. People present at the signing of his new contract saw the president especially happy. He also doesn’t like to see Camavinga on the wing on a regular basis and has let Ancelotti know.. Your place is in the center.
It’s his turn to leave with France, where given the loss of Tchouameni he could settle in that midfield position that he likes so much. There, against Gibraltar y Greece, continue growing, in this case with the help of Deschamps and accompanied by Griezmann, Mbappé and company. He already has a guaranteed place in his team and in his national team and now all that remains is for him to settle in the position that he likes the most.
