January 19 News Real Madrid defender Nacho’s playing time has dropped significantly this season.
So far, he has only played 14 times for a total of 642 minutes, while Nacho played 42 times for a total of 2541 minutes last season.
According to Sergio Santos, a reporter from Relevo who is in charge of Real Madrid news, Real Madrid, especially some old players, feel strange about what happened to Nacho this season, especially when they are in good form and become a substitute.
In contrast, Rudiger, who joined this season, played all the games in this Super Cup, but his performance and status have aroused doubts.
And he has played 22 times so far this season, totaling 1435 minutes.
This comparison has caused doubts in the Real Madrid team. Although Rudiger is a player who is loved by his teammates, and his personality and attitude are no problem, his performance in the current state does not seem to match his playing time.
However, Real Madrid began to believe that one of the sources of the team’s current state and performance is that the competition within Real Madrid has lost its vitality. Some positions and players have gradually solidified their roles, while some substitute players have lost confidence and fighting spirit.
Nacho is one of them. Relevo said that Nacho is dissatisfied with his situation this season, not only because of his playing time and role on the field, but also because of his contract renewal.
Nacho’s contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid has not expressed its intention to renew it.
Nacho’s own goal is to stay in Real Madrid and retire, although there are also teams such as Milan and Wolves in Europe who are interested in him.
Of course, if the contract cannot be renewed, then Nacho would prefer to play in the United States.
