Ancelotti, yes to the quarry but with reservations

The double call of Castillista homegrown players for this Thursday’s cupbearer derby was received yesterday in the bowels of Valdebebas with a point of joy. Any light towards the first team is well received. Mario Martín (18 years old) and Sergio Arribas (21) They were chosen, although the feeling is that the barrier to reach the last step of the Madrid pyramid continues to be very difficult to reach. Ancelotti is aware of what is coming from below -mainly from Raúl’s Castilla and Arbeloa’s Juvenil A- and he has been regularly raising homegrown players to the senior sessions, but the facts show that the Italian is conservative in this matter. The hierarchy of the members of the first team is ahead of the kids and it is difficult that Carlettogreat connoisseur of the dressing room codes, hit a swerve.

Thus, there will be sprinkled opportunities for the quarry but in very specific situations derived from absences in the ranks. For now, in this second era of Ancelotti they have debuted Sergio Santos (22-9-2021, in the League against Mallorca), peter gonzalez (12-22-2021, in the League at San Mamés), Mario Gila (30-4-2022, in the League against Espanyol) and Juanmi Latasa (5-15-2022, in Cádiz). In total they had 66 minutes together… The only homegrown player who really got a taste of what it was like to have an active presence in the first team was left-back Miguel Gutié transferred to 50 percent in Girona, very present in the white start of 2021-22 with 323 ‘and participation even in the Champions League.

Could have been Vinicius Tobias (18 years old) a continuation of that example, but for now he has had to settle for an almost testimonial participation in one of the American friendlies of the white tour last summer, in San Francisco against America. of that stages (and the previous weeks, in Valdebebas) the Brazilian returned with the approval of Ancelotti, who likes the boy’s projection. Raúl is giving him the final touches for professional football and his evolution for the better in recent weeks at Castilla has been very remarkable. Even so, Carletto He preferred in Bilbao to assert the hierarchy and displaced Nacho, who is the third right back (Odriozola is the fourth), to that position. Vinicius Tobias lived the experience of traveling to Bilbao, but he is still in the bedroom. Carvajal’s recovery (not Lucas, who still has a couple of weeks off) makes his eyes have to be on the trip from Castilla to Pontevedra on Sunday.

Because at the moment in this campaign only alvaro rodriguez, the Castilla bull, has tasted the sweetness of his debut. It was against Cacereño, in the first round for Madrid in this Cup. And even so, he had to do it from the bench, when in the 67th minute the transalpine coach got tired of Hazard and decided to add fresh blood. He is now in the South American Sub-20 with Uruguay and although for Ancelotti the first nine substitute is Rodrygo, he comes highly recommended by Raúl. He is one of his fetish players in this Castilla that aspires to promotion.

Another is Mario Martín, whom Raúl had his eye on in Juvenil B to never lose his crush. He made him go up two categories at once to have him at Castilla and it has been the recommendation since Ancelotti found out that he was losing Tchouameni for the Spanish Super Cup. The average young man from Sonseca (he is 18 years old) traveled to Arabia as backup in case any more midfielder fell thousands of kilometers from home. The physical precariousness of Modric, who little by little is recovering his optimal condition (as defined by Ancelotti himself), has motivated this new call from the countryman of Fernando Morientes. A medium in which Raúl sees impressive potential but finds it difficult to unseat, even as a replacement, this imperial Camavinga as five. Even so, in this Madrid that played in La Cerámica with an eleven without Spaniardsthe presence, even if temporary, of two homegrown players and also nationals such as Mario Martín and Arribas does not seem to hurt.
