Ancelotti has used him throughout meaningless games for Real Madrid like the return leg of the Copa del Rey tie against UE Cornellà and the home match against Ludogorets when Los Blancos had already clinched the first spot in their Champions League group. But it seems that Jesé Rodríguez is confident about getting some action in the FIFA Club World Cup that starts today.
We're taking it easy, we don't want scares. I think coach will give me a chance in Morocco, we need to make some rotations because a tough stretch of games is upon us. We're all going to have our chance.
It would definitely make sense from Carlo Ancelotti to leave some of his stars on the bench against Cruz Azul -- maybe Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo -- in order to test Jesé in a competitive match and see how ready he is to make a real impact in a game.
