Real Madrid have confirmed the signing of Marco Pirlon, with the Argentinian international to make his first appearance of the season for the club on Sunday against CSKA Moscow.
According to coach Carlo Ancelotti, Pirloni is not expected to make the start in the Champions League clash with CSKA, but will be fit to face the Russian club.
“We are very happy to sign Pirlone.
He has shown that he is a really important player in our squad and it’s clear he’s capable of playing,” Ancelot said.”
I think he’s the best player in the world and he’ll help us a lot.
I am sure he will be ready for the Champions Liga.”
With Pirlan also on the sidelines, the Real Madrid squad will feature two new faces, with midfielder Luka Modric back in the starting XI after being rested for the opening Champions League game.
“It’s good to have Modric in the team again.
He will be available for the first time against CSK, but that’s it.” “
It’s normal to have the players who are injured with the squad and we have the same problem with Modric.
He will be available for the first time against CSK, but that’s it.”
Real Madrid are currently two points adrift of Barcelona, who are two points clear of Barcelona and three behind Barcelona in La Liga.
