“I think the key thing has been the humility and the experience of the veterans we've got here, along with the energy and enthusiasm of the younger guys," Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said ahead of the ‪2022-23 season.
"They're different generations but with a common goal - to play for Real Madrid. When you have players of that quality, who have had so much success but maintain that humility.
