Ancelotti shrugs off discussing Real Madrid winning the LaLiga title

Fri 29 April 2022 | 13:16

Carlo Ancelotti, the Real Madrid coach, is too cautious to discuss winning LaLiga, but he does speak of his relationship with his son and aide Davide: 'He has the potential to be a fantastic coach.'

If

Real Madrid

defeats Espanyol tomorrow, the Italian strategist would become the first manager to win the title in five separate nations. Ancelotti has won trophies in Italy (Milan), France (PSG), England (Chelsea), and Germany (Bayern Munich). 

Ancelotti declined to share his emotions at his pre-match news conference but likened his squad to tennis players.

“They immediately switched the focus to Espanyol after the game against City. Great tennis players don’t waste a match point. Hopefully, we can make it tomorrow,” he said, as quoted by

Marca

.

“I am very happy, it’s been an easy job because I’ve had the support of the club and the players. I am superstitious, like many Italians, so if you allow me, I prefer to talk once it’s all over,” he said when asked about Madrid winning the title.

“It’s not a revenge for ‘old school coaches’, we must adapt to different times, but I don’t consider myself old. Football is not the same as 20 years ago, rules have changed and one has to keep adapting.”

For several years, Ancelotti has collaborated with his son Davide. At Napoli, Bayern Munich, and Everton, the 32-year-old was his father's sidekick. There are a number of other Italians on the team, notably Antonio Pintus, who worked with Antonio Conte at Inter last season. 

“Davide has been very helpful. Francesco Mauri works with him and the same goes for Luis and Pintus,” said Ancelotti. “The staff is made of young members and it’s exciting to mix my experience with their enthusiasm.

“Davide is my son and it’s difficult for me to talk about him, but he is a very competent tactician and he can become a coach in the future.”

Last summer, Ancelotti rejoined Madrid for a second time, signing a three-year contract with the

LaLiga

heavyweights.
