The Italian says he fielded the Portuguese international so he can be fit for the Spanish Super Cup.

“Cristiano’s determined to play in the Super Cup, that’s why I gave him 20 minutes. There’s no reason to worry about his fitness; we’ll prepare him well and there’s no cause for concern.”

On the defeat, Ancelotti was unconcerned.

“We needed these games to help our preparation. We’re not happy with the defeat. But in seven days’ time we’re playing the Super Cup and we have to continue to prepare ourselves. Today we lacked intensity. The team wasn’t compact enough. We were missing something.”
