Real Madrid boss Ancelotti: Illarramendi can cover Khedira

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Asier Illarramendi is the man to replace injured midfielder Sami Khedira.

Ancelotti was pleased with the youngster's performance in victory over Almeria.

"Illarra has worked really well over the last two weeks. He's in good shape, the same as Isco, who has worked very well too. We've made a few changes to put the players in a more comfortable position. Illarra and Xabi played very well and the team was really balanced especially because of the good work by these two."
