Ancelotti Reveals Real Madrid’s Penalty Taker Hierarchy: Rodrygo Now Ranked 4th

Real Madrid’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has reshuffled the club’s penalty-taking hierarchy, with a notable exclusion. The Italian coach has designated Joselu as the primary penalty-taker, expressing confidence in his abilities. Ancelotti also highlighted Luka Modric as a reliable option for spot-kick duties.

In Ancelotti’s words, “The order is Joselu, Modric, and Vinicius,” with the omission of Rodrygo conspicuously placing him as the fourth choice for penalty-taking responsibilities.

This change comes on the heels of Rodrygo’s missed penalty during Real Madrid’s recent 1-0 victory against Celta Vigo, a moment that could have been costly had it not been for Jude Bellingham’s crucial goal. It appears that Rodrygo’s penalty-taking confidence may have taken a hit, especially after his crucial miss during Brazil’s World Cup campaign in December.

With Ancelotti now entrusting Joselu with penalty duties, the spotlight shifts to the experienced striker as he takes on this pivotal role for Real Madrid.
