‘Warrior’ Lucas Wins Another Aar

‘Warrior’ Lucas Wins Another Aar

Lucas Vázquez tiptoed back to Real Madrid in the summer of 2015 to get on Rafa Benítez’s project. The coach enlisted him for his new army in a move that surprised the club, which gave the go-ahead without any problems because the operation cost one million euros.
It would not be Benítez who would take advantage of his signing. It was Zidane who made him one of his most loyal soldiers and had him always in the front line of combat in all his battles in the first and second stages. Now it is Ancelotti who continues to get the most out of him. Six years after his surprising signing, Lucas gave Madrid the victory in the Camp Nou Classic and continues to shine one of the most profitable operations of the white team in recent years.
Barça’s is a new war won by soldier Lucas. Curiously, the youth squad was seriously injured in the last Classic of last season (he suffered a sprain of the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee) and appeared at the first of the current campaign as a starter to score in a goal that would end up being decisive for the white triumph. A Lucas who started the game as a right back, forming part of a white defense that kept the Memphis, Ansu, Coutinho and company at bay, to finish as an interior ahead of Carvajal and score the final goal.
Ancelotti Warrior
El Clásico sums up the career of a Lucas who has been able to be the protagonist year after year without ever being a very starter. His latest achievement was to become strong as a substitute for Carvajal on the right side, which earned him a renewal in extremis when everything pointed to his time in white coming to an end. Lucas continued and, now without ZZ, he has earned the trust of an Ancelotti who has once again bet on the youth squad in recent games.
