Real Madrid coach Ancelotti defends midfield veteran trio

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has no doubts about the form of his midfield veterans.

With Eduardo Camavinga having arrived and had such an instant impact for Los Blancos, question marks have risen over the future of the famed midfield trio of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric, yet the Italian coach confirmed they are all still important parts of his plans.

"I think they [Kroos, Casemiro and Modric] are players who continue to compete at the top level," Ancelotti said.

"Then we have a squad with young players like Blanco, Camavinga and Valverde who are pushing them a lot.

"I have to take into account everyone's age and their experience, we have a midfield that can compete against anyone."
