Having started the season as a starter, Fade Valverde has returned from injury and is continuing his career as Ancelotti’s loyal man. Taking his place in the middle of the pitch in the last few games, he has shown his value to the team against Cadiz and Athletic in the final 2021 games, providing balance and creative ability.
