Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has said he will rip up his coaching licence if Fede Valverde doesn’t score over 10 goals this season.
The Uruguayan has recorded three goals and two assists in his first eight appearances for Madrid in 2022-23.
This includes a stunning solo effort against Mallorca last weekend.
Valverde followed up that display by scoring another fine goal in a Champions League group stage win over RB Leipzig and Ancelotti has challenged him to maintain his output in the final third.
“What seemed strange to me was that he just scored once last season.
“I told him that if he was not able to score more than 10 goals, I’d have to rip up my coach’s licence. He has a rock in his foot,” Ancelotti said.
