Hazard and Bale game time is not guaranteed - Ancelotti

During an interview with Diario AS, Los Blancos boss, Carlo Ancelotti insisted that Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale are not guaranteed playing time, because has, at his disposal, a lot of options in attack and will continue to search until a winning formula is found. 

He said "I will continue to rotate the players at my disposal until I arrive at a winning formula, thus Hazard and Bale are not guaranteed a starting spot."

The Belgium international has been a shadow of his former self since his move from Chelsea and the Welsh forward, who was on loan at Tottenham last season, are among the options pushing for starting berths in the Spanish capital. 

Bale has been excellent in his early games played so far, scoring his first goal for Real Madrid in almost two years in their 3-3 draw away to Levante, but Luka Jovic, Rodrygo, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior are also yearning to nail down spots in Ancelotti's plans.

"We’ve got some quality forwards like Bale, Vini Jr., Hazard, Benzema and Jovic, who did well against Levante. I have to enjoy that quality on the pitch by handing those who deserve to be out there the game time," the manager concluded. 

The Italian tactician admits there is plenty of options for his side - who have lost Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos this summer - to work on at the back. 

He added that where they have gone wrong and dropped points is not in attack but in defence.
