Camavinga turns 19!! Thoughts on the young midfielder so far.

The kid started out with a bang and has been showcasing some nice touches that made the hierarchy of the club pull the trigger on his signing but there is one area of concern that Carlo Ancelotti needs to address. His sheer enthusiasm when tackling.

Camavinga has already picked up four yellow cards in just 354 minutes of play and is now on the verge of a one game suspension in La Liga if he gets another. His four yellow cards came in just 12 fouls, which roughly equates to a 25% yellow card rate when he goes to ground. This is an alarming rise on the statistics he had in Ligue 1, with his 88 matches for Rennes only seeing him receive 15 cards. He has to get more efficient with his tackling if he’s to be a starter at Real Madrid. An experienced coach like Carlo should be able to temper this enthusiasm as he cannot keep substituting the midfielder at half time like he did against Osasuna.

Adobe Partnership and revenue projections.

The club announced a partnership with Adobe to connect with its fans through omnichannel experiences. One project in the pipeline is bringing the club’s Santiago Bernabéu stadium to a global audience with online experiences, products and services, turning the stadium into a virtual destination. With the help of Adobe, Real Madrid will also accelerate its business and consumer growth in omnichannel commerce to increase value for brand sponsors and partners by helping them open new revenue streams.

“This will accelerate the club’s mission to become a global entertainment brand. By taking the electrifying emotion that fans enjoy in the stadium and translating it into immersive digital experiences, the club will be able to build even closer connections with its worldwide fanbase,” said Paul Robson, president of international at Adobe.
