Chicharito made no mistake in his re-acquaintance with the opposition goal. The Mexican returned to the starting line-up and returned to the scoresheet, just as he did against Deportivo and Levante. The striker now has four goals and is only missing the Champions League to have scored in all the competitions he’s played in with the Whites.
“I’m going to make the most of every opportunity the gaffer gives me. All I think of is going for it the same way every day”, said the former Manchester United player at the end of the match. “I’ll never say whether I deserve to have more or less time on the pitch. When you’re at Real Madrid you can’t ask for any more. I’m here to offer hard work and dedication. I’m not going to get involved in any sort of debate”.
Ancelotti wanted to have another marksman in the squad.The Italian wanted to cover the absence of Morata and when the opportunity to sign the Mexican arose he didn’t think twice. Chicharito is responding to the faith shown in him with goals and above all, great attitude.
The forward described his goal, “James passed to me and the ball ended up with Benzema. The rebound came to me and I searched out the target. That was it really”
