Real Madrid coach Ancelotti impressed by Lucas Silva
The Real Madrid manager gave his new signing a shot in the Champions League, which is no small fry, and the Brazilian didn't disappoint.
As mentioned in MARCA, Lucas Silva has taken a giant leap towards establishing himself as an important figure in Carlo Ancelotti's plans for the business end of the season. The ex-Cruzeiro midfielder may well have sewn up his place until Luka Modrić returns. Lucas lined up to the right of Germany's Toni Kroos, whom Carlo Ancelotti has no intention of relieving of his duties as the team's linchpin. Lucas produced a composed, professional performance, hardly putting a foot wrong and coming out on top in the inevitable comparisons with Illarramendi.
