Carlo Ancelotti: I’m delighted with our attitude


Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti said he was pleased with his side’s focus and attitude in last night’s 2-0 win over FC Copenhagen.

Luka Modric scored a brilliant long range effort before Cristiano Ronaldo wrapped up the three points with a goal on his return from injury after missing the past fortnight. His strike also ensured his goes into the record books yet again, this time for scoring the most amount of goals in the Champions League group stage – nine in six games.

Speaking to journalists after the match Ancelotti revealed he was delighted with what he saw. “The match went well. We were focused, had a good attitude and were in control of the match. I’m happy because we had a good group stage and scored lots of goals. Modric is doing well and Xabi Alonso gives us balance defensively and in attack. All of the players did well, had a good attitude and controlled the play,” he said.

When asked about his thoughts on Ronaldo and his impressive goalscoring exploits this season, the Italian described the 28-year-old as a “complete forward”.

“Inzaghi will not be happy tonight because he has lost this record. He has gone ahead of a very strong player. Inzaghi was very strong in the area and Ibrahimovic is powerful and has a fantastic ability to score and assist. Cristiano Ronaldo is a complete forward who can score goals in every way possible. He’s a bit angry about the penalty, but he scored an important goal and played very well,” Ancelotti stated.
