Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti believes that Fede Valverde can become a leader in the coming years at the club.
Ancelotti praised the winger for an impressive performance against Real Mallorca on September 11, 2022, in which Valverde scored the equalizer for Madrid after they were behind for a while.
He took the ball past the midfield and dribbled past a Real Mallorca player before curving it into the goalkeeper’s net.
Real Madrid went on to win the match after second-half goals from Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Antonio Rudiger.
Real Madrid extended their 100% unbeaten run in the Spanish La Liga and are currently on top of the table with 15 points from five matches, even in the absence of their star striker Karim Benzema.
With his versatility to play in midfield and as a high-pressing wide player, Valverde has emerged over the past 12 months as a significant asset for Ancelotti.
