Fede Valverde has enjoyed a great start to the season so far, scoring six goals in 15 games across all competitions. He has been deployed on the right side of the front three which features Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema, and he can also operate as a central midfielder.
“He has to have that responsibility. We have a bet, I think he will score more than ten this season,” Carlo Ancelotti told DAZN about Valverde.
“He’s a very important player for us. The energy he has is incredible. He has to score ten.
Fede Valverde enjoying remarkable goal return this year
The Uruguayan has equalled the goal tally that he achieved during his first 148 matches for the club in only 15 games this season. And this goes to show how much he has improved in terms of attacking.
“I made a bet, but I think he’ll score more than 10 this season,” Ancelotti said following Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Elche.
“If he scores four more then I get to keep my coaching license! He keeps surprising us. He does well on the wing or in midfield.
Fede Valverde is showing time and time again that he is among the best in the world in terms of versatility. No matter what position he is played in, he puts in a solid shift and impresses. And this sets up the player for a very impressive career up ahead.
