No doubt about Ancelotti future at Real Madrid

0 21

Carlo Ancelotti says there is no doubt about his future at Real Madrid after losing out on the La Liga and the Champions League this season.

Carlo Ancelotti denied there are doubts about his future as Real Madrid coach after his side crashed out of the Champions League this against Manchester City.

Bernardo Silva scored twice in the first half to put City ahead at the Etihad Stadium, before Eder Militao’s own goal and substitute Julian Alvarez’s added-time strike made it 5-1 to City on aggregate.

However Ancelotti — whose contract runs until June 2024 — said the failure to land either trophy shouldn’t raise questions over whether he’ll still be in charge next season.

“Nobody doubts,” Ancelotti said in his post-match news conference, “because the president [Florentino Perez] was quite clear two weeks ago. So nobody doubts.”

The 4-0 loss to City is Madrid’s heaviest Champions League defeat since 2009, when they were beaten by Liverpool by the same scoreline in the round of 16.

“Making an assessment today, in this moment, doesn’t make sense,” Ancelotti said, when asked to explain the performance. “It’s a defeat that hurts, it hurts a lot. But sometimes it can happen in football.

“You get to the Champions League semifinals against a strong opponent, they play better than you and deserve to get to the final. We have to think about next season, the next Champions League, to learn and be better.”

“The opponent was better from beginning to end,” defender Dani Carvajal said. “We lacked a bit of… I wouldn’t say attitude. But we sat back too soon. And when we took a step forward, we had our best minutes.”
