Eduardo Kamavingathe beginning of life in real Madrid was impressive: The French midfielder has demonstrated the technical qualities that have made him a target for Los Blancos for over two years, however, as with any young player, there are some rough edges that need to be ironed out.
This is mainly centered around the discipline of former midfielder Rennes. Kamaving has already received four yellow cards in just 354 minutes of play.
He’s only 18 years old, and these statistics are typical of young players, but he will not have a long-term future at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium if he is permanently suspended, with Sergio Ramos this is one of the rare exceptions to the rule.
Kamaving is on the verge of domestic disqualification for cumulative warnings in LaLiga Santander after he challenged Javi Martinez in a duel with Osasuna on Wednesday.
Only 28 minutes passed, and this card forced the French player to proceed with caution until the end of the fight.
Carlo Anchelotti has the necessary experience to handle this situation and has properly replaced Kamaving during the break, knowing that he cannot be left without a player if the second yellow comes up.
This is not the first time that such a decision has been imposed on an Italian, since during real Madrid match against Espanyol, Camaving received a yellow card in the 29th minute and then was substituted at half-time.
Kamaving has amassed four yellow cards for just 12 fouls, which roughly equates to a 25% yellow card percentage when he is on the ground. This is an alarming rise from his Ligue 1 record, where he made 88 appearances for Rennes just seeing him get 15 cards.
Moving forward, he must find a way to curb this enthusiasm and be more effective in tackling the ball on the field.
