Carlo Ancelotti che gave an interview to the Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport where he reviewed all the news about football and, of course, that of Real Madrid.
“The offer was a fantastic surprise, although I had never lost contact with the club. If it were up to me, I would stay for life, there is no better place for football and to live. In Madrid everything is immutable, the only thing What changes are the coaches. The same physiotherapists, utilleros, journalists, the same vision, the same demand for greatness despite the damages of the pandemic. Within a year the new Bernabéu will be ready, Florentino has very serious intentions.
Haaland and Mbappé?
“Let’s talk about it later”
“It is more even than before. Teams such as Sevilla and Real Sociedad have grown, Rayo is also doing well.”
Leonardo and his attacks by Mbappé
“In other times I would have responded differently, but I am in a phase of life where I only want to be at peace with the world. I have been in football since 1977 … Almost 46 years, and 30 training. I exceeded 1200 games, I lost count. I don’t have time or desire to fight. When Florentino wants to kick me out, I won’t get angry. “
“Football must evolve quickly. The first thing is to reduce the games, it is played too much and badly, the quality of the show has dropped a lot. The players cannot take it anymore, there are those who refuse to go with the national team. Tiredness, injuries, games that end 10 -0 … Enough already “.
World Cup every two years
“Fewer games, I reiterate, and two stops for the national teams. I spoke with Wenger. The footballers, I’m sure, would lower their salary if the calendar was cut, and the coaches the same. Football, as it is, does not hold. The idea of the Super League was born from the demand for this change. “
Your ideas as a coach
“The clever coach is the one who adapts the game to the characteristics of his players. He would be an idiot if, with a forward like Vinicius who has a motorcycle under his feet, he did not bet on the counterattack. Another example: if I have Cristiano, I look for a way to get the ball to him often, I don’t ask him to go back. The same with Ibra. There are two types of players: those who make a difference and those who must run. I don’t believe in ideologies such as guardianism, sarrismo … I believe in the identity of the team “.
His appearance in the Pandora Papers
“There is no tax evasion. I created a company to manage my image rights respecting the English tax regime, which considers foreign earnings tax-free. That company was also closed. We are talking about thousands of euros, not millions. A Spanish judge explained to me that there is a big difference between avoiding and avoiding the Treasury. I never worked in black. “
Italian national team
“In June he did a miracle and we have to be grateful for him. He is inferior to Spain, France, Germany, England, Belgium … He had the right motivations and conditions and Mancini prepared the matches brilliantly, achieving something extraordinary. Play-off? The draw is complicated, but we will be able to qualify. “
“It is normal for Juventus to go through a difficult time, it is being renewed after years of success. The title will be played by Inter, Milan and Naples, although losing Osimhen is a hard blow for the Azzurri. Spalletti is doing a great job and I keep talking. with De Laurentiis. With friendship … “.
