I've been sacked several times and I'm still here - Carlo Ancelotti

Thu 28 October 2021 | 7:38

Last night at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Real Madrid was still unable to defeat the opponent and reached a goalless draw against Osasuna. At the post-match press conference, Carlo Ancelotti announced his support for Ronald Koeman, saying that getting sacked is part of the job.

"

I've been sacked several times and I'm still here, alive and happy,

" Ancelotti said after Madrid's 0-0 with Osasuna.

"Getting sacked is part of the job and you have to give it everything you've got until the day you're sacked.

"You have to look forward while keeping a clear conscience. He’s giving everything he has to give."

Real Madrid is at the top of the table, but the situation is not so favorable because they have collected only 4 points from their previous 4 games and have not won against their rivals in their previous three home games.

"Of the three games, we deserved to win two of them,"

Ancelotti said.

"We have to understand that they are difficult games for this squad, because in this game we lacked presence in the box.

"But do you want the truth? You can call me crazy, but I liked the performance. Especially in the second half. My players have given everything and we have to keep going."

Angelotti also criticized the referee for believing that no penalty had been awarded to them in the first half and that the stoppage time in the second half was too short.

"

The penalty is a complicated issue. All I saw, was Vinicius asking the referee to take a look at VAR and he didn't get why,"

Ancelotti said.

"Then I understood why, he stamps on him and I think it's a penalty. Why VAR did not intervene I don't know.

"I told the referee I felt he hadn't added enough injury time given how the game had gone. I asked him for an explanation but it wasn't very convincing."
