Champions League: Ancelotti announces that Tchouaméni is “not yet out” for the final

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said Monday that midfielder Aurélien Tchouameni, injured in his left foot, was "not yet out" for the Champions League final even if he had "little chance" of making it. play.

“He has little chance but he is not yet out of the final” on June 1, said Ancelotti about the French international, who suffers from a stress fracture in his left foot, one month before the start of Euro-2024.

“It's an important week, his foot doesn't hurt very much, I think it's different from the previous injury he had on his foot. It is not excluded that he will return for the final,” he explained.

Already the victim of a similar injury in October 2023, a fracture of the second metatarsal (central bone of the foot), the 24-year-old midfielder was then away from the field for a month and a half.

The former Bordeaux and Monaco player is therefore still uncertain for the C1 final against Dortmund, with no guarantee of being able to resume competition by the start of Euro-2024 in Germany on June 14.

French coach Didier Deschamps is due to announce the list of players selected for the tournament on Thursday. France will enter the competition on June 17 against Austria.

The Italian coach did not reveal his game on one of the major topics of discussion before the final, namely the choice of goalkeeper, with for the first time this season his three goalkeepers available: Courtois, Kepa and Lunin.

“Lunin has had an excellent season and Courtois is the best goalkeeper in the world when he is at his level,” summarized Ancelotti. “In the week before the final we will make a decision.”

The Belgian goalkeeper has just played his first two league matches after almost nine months of absence and two knee operations.

Carlo Ancelotti also assured that Brazilian defender Eder Militao, also injured since the start of the season, still lacked “minutes” and “pace” to hope to play the final at Wembley.
